  • Published on: 18 April 2020

    Theory: The corporation is Cthulu worshippers and they know what they're doing by mining there.

    It was better than I anticipated, worth the watch. As far as the opening scene I kinda liked how they jumped right into it, I also understand your point with no setup to the characters, alien leviathan and event horizon did that very well

    They don’t give too much character development because they were just sacrifices.. the next movie will go deeper into it when Cthulhu goes to the surface

    Hard for me to critizise the lack of Cthulhu lore, since it is never officially called that.It could be any undersea creature.If it was Cthulhu the mere sight of him should have messed with their minds.

    Wasn't really a fan of Cthulhu's design change. Was looking forward to a more kraken/octopus head look

    Captain Lucien had a drawing of Cthulhu in his locker. He and the other higher ups probably knew he was down there

    Underwater was the best film of the year. It's just unfortunate that everyone has to drag it down because it wasn't a big success.

    Black guy had to die first in this movie - very sad. Reminded me of Deadspace game and Cloverfield movie

    This movie had horrible graphics, you can’t see what’s happening for more then 80% of the entire movie

    I enjoyed it.I do get bugged by people saying the monster or alien was unoriginal. It's like no one enjoys an alien / monster movie anymore, not since the 80's because every comment compares the monster / alien to Aliens. Almost ever youtube essay has the same comment, but when something like Bird Box comes along and doesn't show a monster / alien, the same people throw a fit for not showing one. Just enjoy someone's storytelling without comparing it to an 80s rendition of a similar genre.

    Kristen Stewart is really hot! I watched the movie twice because of her. The movie could have made better on box office with propper marketing.

    I call bullshit on it actually being cthulu. That design choice was probably made way later. I mean she looked right at cthulu and was just fine lol

    This movie was in Disneyplus Hotstsr before. Then a couple months after that it got deleted, just gone from thriller section. What a disappoinment.

    Would have loved to have seen a sequel but will never happen with Disney to bad, if they put R’lyeh in would have loved to have seen how they would have done the architecture that Lovecraft described
