...aka: Deep Star Six
Sean S. Cunningham
I wonder what was going on in the late 80s to prompt so many ALIEN-inspired films set underwater? We not only got this one, but also THE ABYSS, LEVIATHAN, LORDS OF THE DEEP, ENDLESS DESCENT and others. Set sometime in the near future, a slew of scientists and others down deep in the ocean at an underwater military base face off against a giant, mutant crab monster. Doesn't hold up until the end, but it's OK entertainment and the monster designed by Chris Walas and Mark Shostrom in pretty good.
