Critic Reviews for Up from the Depths

All Critics (2)

The gargantuan fish is comical at best (as are reactions to it), yet when it rears its thick-lipped, toothy maw, it possesses a certain charm.

Audience Reviews for Up from the Depths

Low budget shark attack movie and many that were made during the 70s for drive in markets (And to get in on the Animal craze that jaws created) and here for Japanese markets VHS, Laserdisk, Underground screenings. Not as bad as what i have been told but still not far from terrible. One of the better movies that don't use shark stock footage instead some nice to poorly done effects with rubber fins. Bad acting of course and direction nothing but gore and nudity that Corman wants.
