I saw this when I was young, and I only caught the climactic ending.

  • A man is running through some sort of industrial facility. Up on a cat walk, the background has a red lit hue to it. There is some sort of meltdown or explosion pending at this facility. This man is on a tight timeline to get out.
  • Tentacles are attacking him as he goes. There is a menacing close-up of the tentacles, showing toothed rings. The tentacles are a darkish red.
  • The man escapes the facility, and the whole thing explodes. The view of the explosion reveals that the facility was beach-side.
  • This explosion was clearly part of their plan to eliminate the beast.

This is what I remember. I have a vague recollection of my father commenting on the movie, and something about a government experiment gone wrong.

I saw this live-action movie on television in the US in the mid to late 1990s. It could easily have been older, but was in color and had decent effects.

Ok, lets have some images that match DEEP RISING, plus see that ending scene on youtube.


A group of heavily armed hijackers board a luxury ocean liner in the South Pacific Ocean to loot it, only to do battle with a series of large-sized, tentacled, man-eating sea creatures who had already invaded the ship.

Escape, tentacles: enter image description here

More of "facility": enter image description here

Some teeth in tentacles: enter image description here

Creature consumed by fire: enter image description here

Liner explosion: enter image description here

Finally our heroes reach the beach, only to find something else: enter image description here
