The year was 1989: THE ABYSS had come out and wowed audiences, and in short order four other films attempted to capitalize on the popularity of James Cameron's aquatic sci-fi epic: LEVIATHAN, THE RIFT (aka ENDLESS DESCENT), Roger Corman's LORDS OF THE DEEP, and Sean Cunningham's DEEP STAR SIX! Long out of print in any format, this oft-forgotten sci-fi thriller arrives on Blu-ray for the first time with a collectible cardboard slipcover and a slew of special features including cast & crew interviews, two audio commentaries, and more! If you're as excited as I am for this release, then keep reading to get all the details Vault Dwellers!
Synopsis: From producer/director Sean S. Cunningham, the creator of the FRIDAY THE 13TH and HOUSE films, comes this action-packed underwater sci-fi thriller starring Taurean Blacque (Hill Street Blues), Nancy Everhard (THE PUNISHER), Greg Evigan (B.J. and the Bear), Miguel Ferrer (ROBOCOP), Matt McCoy (THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE), Nia Peeples (NORTH SHORE), Cindy Pickett (FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF), and Marius Weyers (THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY).
Far below the surface of the unforgiving sea, the daring crew of DeepStar Six are explorers in a forbidding world of impenetrable darkness and unimaginable pressure. They have invaded the icy fathoms into which no human has ever ventured. Their mission is to establish a top secret Navy base on the ocean floor. But something’s down there and the crew of DeepStar Six are about to make a startling discovery—there’s no escape from the terror of the deep. DeepStar Six will plunge you into the depths of fear… save your last breath... to scream!
