This trailer did kind of pull me in as yes, it looks like Alien underwater. I know little about this though and obviously it could be just terrible. The people that made it promise it is a lot more than Alien underwater. Is this one that has anybody excited or interested in seeing it?

I'm intrigued, based on the trailers. Creature design looks great, based on the limited snippets I've seen.

Looking at the director's IMDB credits, he directed 2014's The Signal which was a nice little SF film; so maybe this has some potential. I'm somewhat intrigued by the creature design and I almost always enjoy survival stories (assuming there are any. :) )

Should have some good scares with the creature emerging out of the murky water.

I assume Kristen Stewart's character will survive. Can't have the strong female lead getting eaten by a monster.

I was thinking the same thing. How is this any different than Leviathan?
Well, it isn't, but that was over 30 years ago and there are a couple of generations that have never seen or heard of that movie.

Kristen Stewart and "friend". There may be a bit of Lovecraftian influence in the design.

Well, let's hope its better than Leviathan. The creature design (at least the teasers we've seen) certainly points to better FX. (30 years is a long time for the advancement of special effects.)

Yeah, I assume that Ripley (err... Norah) will survive. :)

Monster movie with a couple at least decently known names... you might be able to raise nearly that preselling international distribution rights.

Watching Leviathan (1989) now via Amazon Prime. Looks and sounds pretty good. The acting isn't great, but there are some neat Stan Winston practical FX. Though it does seem kind of like an underwater version of The Thing.

Amazon also has DeepStar Six (1989) if anyone's interested in more deep sea monster movies.

Yeah, Leviathan, uh, "borrows" quite a lot from The Thing design-wise. I like Deep Rising better, but it's a fine line. ;)
