Something blue. What is aquatic horror? How Deep Rising under-sells what’s special about it, and what a proper logline of the actual movie would look like. The rag-tag crew trope. What fears does aquatic horror tap in to? The overwhelming size of big. The mystique of the shadow. Old CGI is finally coming into it’s moment. Controversial opinions on the truth behind the best eras of practical effects. When different low budget film makers get larger budgets. The unique films of Stuart Gordon. The character of the independent director. The artist’s hand. Cancel the ocean. Something old, something new, something borrowing, something blue will return.
