Perfectly serviceable monster movie. Sean Cunningham delivers exactly what you want, with just enough gore and bad ends for people.

I've often seen this film mistaken as being superior to Leviathan. It is not. It is painfully not. Leviathan isn't exactly a masterpiece, but at least it has a cast. The talent for Deepstar was offscreen with the director of Friday the 13th (which I maintain is a positive) and the producer of a boatload of awesome. What surprised me most was the soundtrack, which seems to have been lifted for the recent Prometheus. Btw the third sea movie of the period was The Abyss. I hated The Abyss.

Not too bad, but there's very little monster, and very much other stuff. The monster sucks though and wish it would be more threatening. Still the other situation is threatening enough

As far as 80's horror goes this one isn't too bad. It's got some very memorable deaths, especially the one immortalized on the movie poster. The trademark "non-monster but detriment to the team" is actually half believable instead of just literally terrible at absolutely everything (though let's be honest he is pretty terrible at almost everything). Even so, for a low budget horror flick that feels like Alien-except-under-the-sea it manages to entertain.

A pretty crummy late-era Cold War nuclear fears film. It cribs aggressively from Alien and Aliens, which is really only interesting to me in leading to my thinking about how much Alien actually draws from submarines itself.
