Brian Yuzna’s Amphibious: Creature of the Deep Finally Surfacing on US DVD

Post Thumb:


It’s been over two years since we last reported anything about Brian Yuzna’s Amphibious so it goes without saying that this DVD release is a long time coming. The giant sea scorpion flick finally surfaces this October, albeit under the new title Amphibious: Creature of the Deep.

The director of Bride of Re-Animator, Beyond Re-Animator, Return of the Living Dead III, and Society traveled to Indonesia to produce his newest creature feature starring the venerable Michael Pare and Dutch actress Janna Fassert.

Marine biologist Skylar Shane hires an expert charter boat captain, Jack Bowman, to help her find prehistoric life form samples in the north Sumatran Sea. During the expedition they meet a gang of smugglers headquartered on a fishing platform in the middle of the sea with a young orphan boy among them who begs Skylar to take him away. She is determined to help him, not knowing what lurks beneath the dark inky water, waiting to surface.

Yuzna originally shot the film in 3D, but it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting the three-dimensional version when Vivendi Entertainment releases Amphibious: Creature of the Deep on DVD October 9th.

    Brian Yuzna’s Best film has to be his “whispers” segment of the CRIMINALLY under-seen 90’s Horror film anthology NECRONOMICON:BOOK OF THE DEAD…a film that to me showed that if you do a little bit of digging you can find out that some 90’s horror films kicked just as much ass as 70’s and 80’s horror films

    A little saddening about no 3D version.

      Yes, I remember this was supposed to be 3D.

      Yuzna’s movies may not all be good but none of them puss out and give you a PG experience. He’s willing to step up with the nudity and gore.

        Well with any luck the UK or another area might get it in 3D; though the UK tends to be Region B blocked 🙁 I’m at least glad that something like Bait is getting 3D Blu-Ray; would hope more non-Hollywood films would get that release.

        Love the format and I’m always interested in seeing other 3D features than just what the majors are putting out. Though last time I did I got Day of the Dead 3D…worst mistake ever. But, just waiting and twiddling my thumbs until Avengers, Prometheus, and Abe Lincoln hit the street.

          I saw both The Avengers and Prometheus in 3D theatres and only the latter was worth the premium. The Avengers was never meant to be 3D and it didn’t add anything to the experience. Maybe the 3D will be slightly better on a home format but I have my doubts.
