HORRORS FROM THE DEEP

Films where the horror takes place in eerie, watery locations where the terror comes from ferocious sharks, mutated monsters, or from beyond space!!!

 

 

ALLIGATOR- It lives 50 fifty feet beneath the city. It’s 36 feet long. It weighs 2,000 pounds …And it’s about to break out! A giant alligator is on the loose in Chicago. Chicago?, yup, don’t go down the sewers! (1980)

AMPHIBIAN MAN- People living at the seashore town are frightened by reports about the unknown creature called “the sea devil.” Nobody knows what it is, but it’s really a son of a doctor Salvator. The doctor performed a surgery on his son so that he can live under water. This gives him certain advantages, but creates a lot of problems. (1962)

ATRAGON- This classic sci-fi epic from Japan now uncut in widescreen format with English sub-titles. The underwater MU Empire threatens to destroy the surface world. Japan creates a high tech submarine that can submerge in water, burrow in the ground, fly, and is loaded with super weapons. They use it to attack the underwater city and fight the monster sea serpent (MANDA) that guards it. Also features the original U.S. and Japanese theatrical trailers. (1963)

BARRACUDA (The Lucifer Project)- In a secret government experiment, the drinking water of a whole city is mixed with a chemical which makes people aggressive. By accident the water flows into the sea and turns a school of Barracudas into man-eating monsters, attacking divers and swimmers. (1978)

BEACH GIRLS AND THE MONSTER (aka The Monster From The Surf)- Jon Hall directed and stars in a film about a nutty oceanographer who spends half his time watching bikini-clad girls and the other half creating a monster to prey on the cuties. Great camp fun. (1965)

BEAST OF THE LAKE- At last an English subtitled print of “Monster Of Contanza Lake”. Beautiful widescreen print.

BERMUDA TRIANGLE- Widescreen, English Language, directed by Rene Cardona, Jr., contains German subtitles. Set in the uncomfortable surroundings of the Bermuda Triangle, where a family sets about documenting a hidden underwater city that is located there. Some gruesome events unfold, however, as the triangle offers glimpses of its past, and attempts to claim some victims from the present! (1978)

BEYOND THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE- A retired businessman notices that there has been a rash of ships and planes disappearing off the Florida coast, and he starts to investigate. (1975)

BLOOD BEACH- “Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, you can’t get to it” was the tag line for this film about a creature living beneath the sand of a California amusement park that sucks people down. Contains the infamous “castration” scene when a rapist is caught chasing his victim onto the sand. Very rare. (1980)

BLOOD WATERS OF DR. Z (aka Zaat)- A mad scientist first turns himself into a giant walking catfish monster, then sets out to kill the colleagues who ridiculed him. (1972

BOG- When it comes to cinema swamp monsters, the most obscure is “Bog”, a film so obscure only true fans of swamp monsters know of it’s existence. Stars Aldo Ray (1976).

CREATURE OF DESTRUCTION- More schlock from director Larry Buchanan. A stage hypnotist puts a beautiful girl into a trance, turning her into a sea monster that rises from the surf to murder, kill and slaughter. Direct remake of THE SHE CREATURE. (1967)

CRUEL JAWS- Directed by Bruno Mattei, in Widescreen Format, English language with Japanese subtitles. UNCUT 98 minute import print of aka ’Jaws ‘96’ the seldom seen 1994 film. However, this worthwhile shark attack clone is made with high production values and some nice special FX work. Actually this film is more of an updated version of ‘The Last Jaws/L’Ultimo Squalo/Great White’. With Universal studios stopping all films even closely related to ‘Jaws’ , this production will not be released in most countries. (1994)

CURSE OF THE SWAMP CREATURE- Classic Z movie directed by Larry Buchanan. Mad doctor in the everglades is crazily at work creating a half-human reptile monster. (1966)

CYCLONE- Certainly an intense and at times campy little cult gem from Rene Cardona, Jr. Just think of your standard disaster film with some shocking exploitation scenes. It’s rumored that the filmmakers used real corpses to feed the sharks! Warning to anyone with a weak stomach as this is quite out there in some scenes, in the gross-out department. As well as anybody who might own a poodle, you might like to turn away in 1 scene. All that said, CYCLONE, is much better than Cardonas other more known disaster film, SURVIVE.

DARK ECHOS- (UNCUT) In 1874, the Atlas (an excursion boat) sunk into the icy waters of Lake Tarr.
