Deep Blue Sea

Inspired by the nightmares of marine Telepathy suffered by Australian screenwriter Duncan Kennedy on seeing a victim of a shark attack washed up outside his beachfront home, Deep Blue Sea takes the seaborne Monster Movie typified in the modern era by Jaws (1975) and adds a soupçon of Uplift to the quasi-Biological explanation for the behaviour of the sharks. “You’ve taken God’s oldest killing machine and given it will and desire,” says an aghast Carter Blake (Jane) on finding out that chief scientists Jim Whitlock (Skarsgård) and Susan McAlester (Burrows) have flouted the code of ethics in their bid to meet a 48-hour deadline to discover a cure for Alzheimer’s. “What you’ve done is knocked us all the way to the bottom of the goddamn food chain.”
