- General info
A roller-coaster ride, a life-and-death journey to escape terrifying sea creatures that have come from the ocean floor to infest the Argonautica, one of the largest luxury liners in the world. From the bottomless depths of the South China Sea, gruesome creatures surface to attack and cannibalise the passengers on a luxury cruise liner. With swift and deadly precision, these voracious serpents swarm through every deck and passageway, devouring all living things in sight, and transforming the vessel into a floating chamber of horrors. For the few terrified survivors remaining on board who are able to elude the bone-crushing forces, a living nightmare awaits them at every turn.

Insane cult action horror movie
- Deep Rising review by AER
Those without a sense of humour will right this off as a corny Aliens rip-off but this supremely corny action-horror nails the tone perfectly. Mercenaries hijack a luxury cruise liner just after it gets attacked by a giant squid! What!???? A game cast who look like they got involved just to have fun sell this alongside excellent (for the time) SFX by ILM / Rob Bottin elevate this to crazy cult favourite. Treat Williams, Famke Jansen, Jason Flemyng, Wes Studi and cameos from Djimon Hounsou, and Cliff Curtis make this a very entertaining and OTT banger. At the time it got written off as derivative and poorly made, but this is an arched, expertly pitched tribute to the bad b-movies of the 1950s. It's a winner and contender of one of the best 'so bad it's awesome' films of all-time. Full Scream Ahead indeed!!!
