Open Water (2003)


open water“Other people go on vacation and spend their days just laying around. We have a story we’re going to be telling for the rest of our lives. ” – Daniel

Number of Times Seen – 1 (31 Aug 2015)

Brief Synopsis – A couple accidentally get left in the Ocean after scuba diving with a group and must try to find a way to survive

My Take on it – I recently heard about this movie from Tim over at FilmFunkel and decided to give it a shot since it seemed to be a very interesting premise.

I’m not much of a fan of Horror movies, but this one felt like more of a thriller.

It’s quite scary to think that this is based on true events and that something like this could happen.

This movie was made on a very low budget and it feels that way.  The good thing is that knowing that fact helps give more credibility to the idea that something like this can happen.

I loved the way that they filmed the actors in the water because we could easily feel like we are floating there along with them.

Bottom Line – Very scary thinking that this kind of thing can really happen.  The movie itself is low budget and you can feel it, but the truth is it actually helps the story get more credibility as  it’s based on a real story. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Susan and Daniel’s last names are revealed on their ID cards; hers is Watkins, his Kintner. In Jaws (1975), the skinny-dipping girl who serves as the shark’s first victim is named Chrissie Watkins, and the second victim, the young boy who is killed on his inflatable raft, is named Alex Kintner. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy
