Plot

Up from the Depths wwwgstaticcomtvthumbmovieposters44547p44547

The staff and vacationers at a first-class resort on the island of Maui are beginning to mysteriously disappear. A biologist believes that an underwater earthquake has caused a giant and very hungry dormant prehistoric fish to be released from his slumber. The fish voraciously helps himself to a tourist buffet. Now it's open season for the local fishermen to find and kill the creature.

Production

Charles B Griffith later called making the film a "terrible experience".

Up from the Depths Up from the Depths 1979 Review BasementRejects

We had it written by one of the typists or secretaries in the office who didn't have any thoughts of becoming a writer. I think Roger did it to punish me, to send me out to The Philippines where I didn't know what I was getting into. I was making an action picture, but The Philippines people were all so depressed, and they had made this goofy-looking fish with bug eyes. I told them that we'll make it a comedy, and their eyes lit up! So I sent back a comedy on one plane, and I arrived on the next one. By the time I arrived, Roger had already cut 75 minutes out. As an editor would say, "That's a set-up, that's a payoff!"
