Ok, now it is finally time to present this (until now… very rare) gem. After I saw some images of this show…I know immediately that I must see the scenes to the pictures.
I started a post in which I asked if anybody would have a video of that scene. Luckily I got a pretty quick response and got several videos and pictures along with explanations.
THANK you very MUCH “D.” !!! 🙂
And now it is time to share this with you folks! Thanks for subscribing to my youtube channel and for all the patience!
One last thing: This is his original video, I didn’t edit it in any way to avoid any image quality loss and to show “his” video. He recorded it on VHS and edited/cutted it with “primitive” (his words) tools afterwards.
He doesn’t have the complete scene without cuts anymore.

And here is the video:
READ this AFTER you watched the video!
First some selected (translated) background information from him:
“A german dive couple dives to a place where some jewels are hidden (The “Tränen der Kleopatra” (title of this S.O.S. Barracuda movie)).
But they are not alone. The evil diver attacks her from behind and cut her air hose. Afterwards the evil diver battles her dive buddy and is forced to the surface.
Later she is found by some members of the “Barracuda” (police ship).
My opinion on all this:
The struggle between her and the attacker is much too short. The camera work is too fast and too shaky. We don’t see very much of her….
Many “mistakes”: Her tanks empties so fast…. if she had more than a few % of her air left…that’s mistake. It should take much longer until she is out.
She doesn’t fight back and her only action is to use the octopus.
And why is her dive buddy suddenly so far away from her? He was pretty close as he was cutting these cables.
First of all, this is the ONLY scene I know (in a movie or TV series) where a female diver is attacked…her air hose gets cut…AND she actually drowns afterwards. In every other scene with an air hose cut…the female diver always survive. This aspect make it unique! GREAT! A real big + point!
After he drowned we get to see a lot of scenes of her dead body. That is very rare too.
I guess many will love all these “death stare” scenes. And let’s be honest: I do ….like them….somehow. (But my main interest is to see the struggle before the drowning)
I do really like this video! It misses key elements (struggle/fight) for me….BUT it offers a LOT! Very unique stuff….

What do you think?
Feel welcome to leave your comment below!
P.S.: He did another video with about 14 minutes with his highlights of the scene in slow-motions.
Would you folks be interested in that too?
