47 Meters Down

★½☆☆ – (2017) – Two friends become stranded in an underwater cage beneath shark infested waters. Does manage a moment or two of suspense, and the overall dread is fitting, but the rancid dialog all but destroys the experience. The characters are annoying to the point where one can’t help but root for the sharks.

Octopus

★★☆☆ – (2000) – A submarine crew falls under attack from a giant octopus. Does an okay job handling some of the horror mayhem, but fails in a big way when dealing with the dramatics of military meatheads. A poor man’s Deep Rising, but manages to overcome some of its many shortcomings.
