The frontrunner for best horror movie of 2020 so far is Underwater, a deep-sea nailbiter that plays out like a lost chapter in the Cloverfield franchise. Those who have seen the film can attest that the ending is a visual feast, an extremely satisfying climax–but what did it mean?
If you’ve yet to see Underwater for yourself, bookmark this page and come back once you’ve given the film a spin.
If you have seen Underwater, and you’d like to take a deep dive (pun intended) into the ending’s meaning, give the video embedded at the top of the article a look-see. It’s produced by Mr. H (one of our favorite UK film critics and academics) who got the skinny from Underwater’s director, William Eubank.
YouTube is swimming (another pun intended) in “Ending Explained” videos for Underwater, but how many of those feature the film’s director? This is truly an unprecedented window into an incredible film. You can check out another interview Mr. H conducted with Eubank, HERE.
Disaster strikes more than six miles below the ocean surface when water crashes through the walls of a drilling station. Led by their captain, the survivors realize that their only hope is to walk across the sea floor to reach the main part of the facility. But they soon find themselves in a fight for their lives when they come under attack from mysterious and deadly creatures that no one has ever seen.
Underwater stars Kristen Stewart, Jessica Henwick, and T.J. Miller.
