On this episode of Corpse Club, we continue our Class of 1989 celebration with a look back at two deep-sea horror movies that swam into cinemas 30 years ago!
On this episode of Corpse Club, we take a deep breath and plunge into salty waters to discuss the aquatic horror movies Leviathan and DeepStar Six as part of our Class of 1989 retrospective series! Listen as co-hosts Heather Wixson, Bryan Christopher, and Derek Anderson talk about their favorite elements of the deep-sea 1989 horror films, including the blue-collar chemistry of their casts, the well-developed (and stressed-out) characters, the outer space-like isolation of the ocean floor, and the impressive practical effects that bring the nightmare-inducing creatures to life in both movies. With 1989 being a banner year for submersible scares, the co-hosts also chat about James Cameron's The Abyss and other deep-sea horror movies released that year. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy a new Class of 1989 episode of Corpse Club... just make sure you depressurize before listening!
