A far-fetched sci-fi/horror flick with little to show for it except for Bradford Dillman once again rescuing an unworkable script. Even he barely manages to pull this one through though and make it watchable, which has been his specialty for his entire career.

The plot revolves around strange happenings in a futuristic underwater sea lab, where aliens seem to be creating problems for the inhabitants therein. 

Where are these monsters coming from and what os the objective? 

Well, there are no real monsters. It's all the work of Dillman as the insane lab director - for whatever reason behind it -, aided by a massive computer system that enables him to do such things. Dillman, of course, tried to take this hopelessly psychotic character to new heights, but his greatest scene, one which might have saved this bomb, was cut when producer Roger Corman (who also appears uncredited in a brief spot in the movie) wanted it reshot.

When the computer is failing, the sea lab is being destroyed and Dillman is about to die in the process, he did some add-libbing, breaking into tears. He cries not for himself, but the "death" of his beloved machines, as if losing his greatest friend. While this added something to the character, at least the way I see it, the producer did not agree, ordering by memo for the sequence to be reshot, minus tears.

This could have been a far better movie, had Dillman been given free reign to play the lead role as he desired. He saved loads of movies with bad scripts before, such as The Eyes Of Charles Sands, The Lincoln Conspiracy, Man Outside, Bug and The Legend Of Walks Far Woman. He could have done so again, had he been allowed.

The movie is not totally unwatchable, but could have been better. Priscilla Barnes makes for nice eye candy in this as well. Otherwise, here have been loads of other movies about undersea terror that serve the viewer well. This isn't the greatest, by any means.
