Clods of the Deep

Okay. Take one part "Underwater", add one part "Prometheus", toss in a dash of H. P. Lovecraft, and then subtract all of the positive qualities of all three elements, and you'll end up with the abysmal mess that is "Gods of the Deep".

Now, to buy into this sordid, idiotic, wretched mess, you have to believe that a dedicated group of highly trained, highly educated individuals think it prudent to light up cigarettes and fire submachine guns in a pressurized, climate controlled, atmospherically controlled submersible at a depth exceeding 15,000 meters. These idiots are supposedly so concerned about the sub imploding that they run around shooting holes in it, and attacking pressurized hatches with fire axes. Two of these idiots end up in a fight to the death; one has the submachinegun, the other has the ax. Now, instead of the guy with the submachinegun, which is loaded and functional, shooting the guy with the ax, he tries to parry a blow from the ax with the gun, and loses the gun.

These are just the meagrest examples of everything that is so abysmally stupid about this film. Do you really still want to watch it?

Clods of the Deep.

A bumbling group of international goofballs dive to the bottom of the ocean in a corrugated tool shed held together with caution tape.

Yeah, this exists.

I don't think it is a parody but that it was actually made in complete earnest Roger Corman-style. So it has a bit of heart as a labor of love. A Lovecraftian labor at that.

And while the sets are very cheesy, the camera work (especially the lighting), the sound and the editing are all actually pretty professional. And most of the cast seems to have attended at least an acting class or two.

But the budget is infinitesimal. Distractingly so.

There is a plot. Of sorts.

Well, at least Tim and Joe are watchable.

We Found Them

The production is inspired by HP Lovecraft. This is apparent in the opening with Jim Peters (Derek Nelson) who works at Miskatonic University. He is part of a crew that will do deep dive off the coast of Antarctica for the Pickman Corporation. They have discovered an ancient artificial stone structure and opening at 30,000 feet or so. Their task is to enter the hole and take a look around. They discover some time issues and an organism where they get a tissue sample, although the creature wasn't dead yet.

The submarine was rather large for that type of dive and it stayed pretty dark for much of the film. They also had the worst CPR I have ever seen in a film. It was boring and painful to watch.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.
