episode 282: Deep Rising (1998)

We're joined by Trev (Failure to Franchise/Days of Future Podcast) and Tom (Final Forum Dragonball Podcast) to discuss the 1998 aquatic monster movie, Deep Rising!  The film tells the story of a group of hijackers and a small transport boat crew who make their way onto a luxury cruise ship that has been grabbed by a giant creature, whose tentacles are killing everybody on board.  A critically reviled box office failure, the film has gone on to become a cult classic in recent years.  We talk about its complicated production, as well as how it holds up now.  We also do some mythbusting along the way.  And does King Kong have anything to do with all this?  Listen and find out!
