"Deep deep trouble"

Films: Deep Star Six (1989)

Alias: None

Type: Ancient

Location: Ocean/Haunted home

Height/Weight: That of a small car.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: The deepest parts of the Earth take us to the bottom of the sea. And if you find yourself believing that no creature could live the deep, tell yourself to stop. Because there is life down there. It just doesn't usually get big enough to chomp down on humans...

History: Somewhere at the bottom of the ocean, a US facility known as the Deep Star Six is looking to find new ways to colonize the most barren area on Earth. However, the folks are not quite as alone as they thought. The deepest reaches of the big blue have been ripped open by explosives, and now a monstrous apex predator from a forgotten time has been unleashed...

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After following the survivors to the surface, it gets dowsed in fuel before being ignited by a flare, which causes the escape pod to explode and take it with it.

Powers/Abilities: None

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3-The sad thing is that this thing has an impressive design, but we hardly see it. Then again, that doesn't take away from the fact that these people are getting ripped to shreds by some horrible crab monster from the bowels of the Earth.

Trivia: -This film was conceived all the way in 1987 to lead a trend of "deep sea exploration gone wrong" movies. With the exception of "The Abyss", no film like this at the time was particularly successful.

-The monster was done by Chris Walas, and the FX department only had to make the most minor of changes. The biggest one was the beast's color scheme.

Took the bait, didn't he? He wants more now...

A moray eel? Don't be daft.
Is that, like, one of its young or an undersea Crite?

Quit spoiling the main attraction!
This adventure is going to end before it begins.

Is that an egg clutch or...?
