Below Below

In the dark silence of the sea during World War II, the submarine U.S.S. Tiger Shark prowls on what should be a routine rescue mission. One of the survivors, a nurse, raises tensions among the all-male crew from the moment she steps aboard. Commanding Officer Lieutenant Brice does his best to keep the unruly crew in line, but after suffering damage from a barrage of Nazi depth charges (in a spectacular sequence) a series of increasingly spooky occurrences begin to rattle everybody aboard. A mysterious face that appears in the windows, a ghostly phonograph that plays a Benny Goodman record, and a corpse that seems to talk are just the beginning. Director David Twohy's “Below” is a unique submarine thriller skillfully, that combines the conventions of the War and Haunted House genres, using a keen eye for detail to create a very believable and claustrophobic world. This movie is rated R for language and some sexuality.
