UPDATED: Monster of the Day #454

When Tequila goes horribly, horribly wrong.

As for the below, I almost used it as a separate MotD, but couldn’t bring myself to do it. It’s not even another ‘stage’ of the monster, ala Alien, but rather just the fully revealed beastie. So I’ll add it here.

  • The Rev.

    Is this Deep Rising?  That’s the only thing I can think of, looking at this beastie.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    It is indeed, Rev.  I really enjoy this film.  One of Stephen Somers’ GOOD films (along with the first Mummy film).  I wish I could find the soundtrack, but I’m glad I’ve got the DVD.

    I get a kick out of deep rising.  One of those prepared to be bad but actually quite fun.   

  • Wow, it’s been so long since I’ve seen it, I didn’t even recognize it. I’ve got to get me a copy of the film. I loved it. Another nice Goldsmith score, if I recall correctly.

    I always did like Deep Rising.  Should watch it again some time.

  • Flangepart

    Gooey and gross. Suprized it didn’t do more busness.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    I thought the Rick Baker design for the main beast was pretty cool (looks a bit like the Id Monster in that still).  But I must admit I was a tad disappointed that there WAS a main beast.  The tentacles as separate animals was much more creepy.  “They” always seemed to act individually anyway.

  • The Rev.

    Ah yes, the added photo makes it very clear indeed.
    I recall thinking it was all right, but nothing special.  I recall a lot of stupidity going on that I was unable to fully overcome.  I did like the creatures.  Like BC, I preferred when I thought they were a pack of ravenous worms; the reveal at the end was kind of disappointing, even though it’s a kaiju-sized critter.  Of course, I recall they foreshadowed the reveal earlier on, so it wasn’t a huge shock.

    I seem to have thought less of it than most of you; I haven’t bothered to rewatch it.

    I always called the main beast Cthulhu, so I was happy.
