      Kathy Fennessy Seattle Film Blog Not exactly essential, DeepStar Six is an enjoyable watch. Rated: 2.5/4 Nov 25, 2022 Full Review Grant Watson Fiction Machine It must be said there is not much Cunningham does wrong here, but at the same time there is little or nothing that stands out. Rated: 4/10 Sep 5, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy In water, no one can hear you scream. Rated: 2/4 Oct 24, 2020 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a slow-moving thriller that admittedly (and for the most part) fares better than one might've anticipated... Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 26, 2020 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The first problem with the film is the amount of time it takes before the monster appears. Rated: 5/10 Aug 31, 2020 Full Review Richard Freedman Tulsa World There are, in short, no human relationships aboard Deepstar Six, just frequent frantic cries of "Mayday!"

      Luke C For a 1989 sci-fi horror done on the sea floor with decent effects, I need to say it is definitely a cult classic. Decent actors with decent acting. The story builds up tension between the characters then adds a cool, creepy undersea creature. It's better than Leviathan in my opinion. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/13/24 Full Review Erin M Great movie! I saw it in theatres upon original release and recently was happy to find dvd at thrift store. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/29/24 Full Review David W Always had a soft spot for this Abyss/Alien 80's-tastic romp. Whilst it's not in the same league as either of those classics, the acting was decent and the special effects for the time (slightly ropy creature effects not withstanding) were good. Despite the monster taking its time to arrive in the film and being a bit underwhelming when it did, I liked its b-movie vibe. Not many agree with me obviously but whilst it's no classic of the sci-fi horror genre, I still enjoyed this. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/13/23 Full Review Chris M This was during the mini boom of deep sea movies spawned by "The Abyss". But sadly it got bad reviews and got a bad rap by people who don't understand it's not an "Alien" rip off. The monster is unique, a crazy combination of different sea creatures. The gore works. There are some character issues like the before mention moron who started the missile's self destruct. There are two fake out scares that got annoying. But overall, I found it fun, scary creature feature fun. A true underrated underwater classic of the 1980s that needs more love. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/07/23 Full Review Adam W Low grade Rehash of the Alien/ The Thing formula. But good atmosphere and creature effects. If you like 80s horror movies, it's worth a watch Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/25/22 Full Review Audience Member A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood was scarier than this movie. The cast is in the "C" grade and the effects are equivalent to a Tonka truck in a fishbowl.. And why is it that a "Seamonster" isn't happy to be let out of it's trapped cavern? I'm elated when I get out of the house. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
