That video was done from a VHS recording as the movie was aired the last time in the early 2000s. A very nice guy provided that one to me in 2018.
Now, after all these years the movie was shown again on a HD channel, so I was able to get a proper recording.
Also, I could see the whole movie now and not only a couple of minutes of it.
There is also another scuba scene in this one that I didn’t know of, but we will come to that later on.
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
My view on the plus and minus points of this scene hasn’t changed (from my old post):
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 a 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.
Additional – points:
Why does she drowned that fast? I often laugh at some scuba fetish videos where it takes up to 5 or more minutes for someone to drown which is just hilarious. But ok, I guess some folks wanna see it so long. Here it is quite the opposite: He cuts her air hose and she drowns in a matter of a few seconds. Equally weird. Especially as she uses her 2nd regulator and should get air from it as long the tank still got air in it.
Her male buddy behaves really completely insane. He manages to disarm the attacker, who closes his air valve. But what does the guy do? Trying to reach it, and fails to do so. Ok, yeah, it’s not so easy to reach it with shorter arms. But…..why doesn’t he get out of his BCD-vest? Then he could easily reach the valve and turn his air back on! Instead, he dives to his now-dead girlfriend. He realises that she is dead and that her air hose is cut. But he tries to get air from his tank! WHY? How is there supposed to be air left in there as the air hose is sliced and no more air escapes the cut hose? Completely moronic move. He still doesn’t think of turning his air back on and ascends rapidly, nearly dying in the process.
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 makes it unique! GREAT! A real big + point! (*EDIT* Now in 2021 it’s one of two scenes I know of that kind)
After she drowns 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)
Additional + points:
The scuba fight with the two men is actually not bad. I wish he would have struggled with her like that. He manages to disarm the attacker and injures him.
Later on, her fires an emergency rocket and gets saved by the Barracuda crew. But some minutes later he gets shot by the killer….

But as I mentioned there is another scuba scene, check it out:
Well, what did just happen? Good question!
First of all, I love the end result! The evil scuba killer who drowned one frogwoman gets now (seemingly) drowned by another female diver (from the Barracuda police crew).
A really great, fitting result! 🙂
….what has happened down there?????? It isn’t shown and it isn’t explained at all. She doesn’t speak about it with the other crew members, no one asks her.
That way we totally have to use our imagination.
Has she somehow turned his air off? Has she stabbed him with a knife that was never shown? Was there a struggle between the two? Why didn’t both dive to the surface to find out what was going on there?
Well, all questions we never get an answer for….. 🙁
I really like to see her in closeups in her full face mask! Would have love to see them fight against each other! With him trying to drown another frogwoman….but this frogwoman would be far better skilled than his last victim with her police scuba training (it was mentioned in the movie).
I guess in the end they may have been run out of money (or time) and just didn’t filmed some more scenes underwater.
A real shame, but it is cool to have another scuba scene in this movie….
– S.O.S. Barracuda is a german series consisting out of 8 movies made from 1997 to 2002. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1169951 During the summer of 2018 I heard that there was a rather fantastic scene (with some flaws) in one of the movies. But I thought I would probably never see it. These movies weren’t shown since the early 2000’s in german TV and there are no DVD/Blu-ray releases. Then I made a request for it on my blog. I was very lucky to get videos files from a friendly guy who read my request about these movies.
I subscribed to an email-alert that I would get if these movies ever would be shown again here in german TV. Since, as I said, the movies weren’t shown for over 15 years….I had very little hope that they would ever be shown again. But yesterday I got such an email alert….. …I was quite shocked….in a good way On January 23 a first movie of that show is shown on “RTL Passion” (german pay TV). Oddly enough they show movie number 3…at first. At my place where I have cable….I can’t get that channel, even I would want to.
I would love to get recordings of all 8 movies. AS I understand only 2 or 3 have scuba content in it. But I want all of them in a good quality. Especially that one with the epic scuba drowning!!!! Hopefully the channel will show all of them….
I will try to figure out if there is a way in which I could get these movies in nice quality files. Has anyone experience in recording from a TV airing? In a way that you would have a quality file on the computer afterwards? I have a digital recorder which I use to record movies all the time. But they are then on that recorder and can’t be moved to anywhere else. I also have an older recorder with DVD drive, which I could use to get it to the computer….but as I said, I can’t get that channel so….both recorders are not an option in this case. Perhaps getting it from a streaming site would be an option…
I hope someone here can help with advice! Or perhaps even record these movies…
*EDIT* January 24th:
All issues have been figured out and I got the first one, check out the new post from January 24 for the scenes from the first movie.
You can find the answers I got in the forum itself as I don’t want the made this post too long.
Well, I really hope that they will air all these 8 movies, especially the ones with female scuba content off course….
First of all thanks to the guy who recommended me a video from this TV show and also to Scuba Snooper who uploaded a video from it on youtube!
I asked for the title of the untitled video and not only got the title, but the link for the whole episode!
Couldn’t ask for anything more….. 🙂
I checked the whole episode and found a lot more interesting scenes, so I decided to make my own version with all the female scuba scenes below and above the surface.
But enough text for now, let’s start with some pictures:
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
So, I don’t understand hungarian (surprise!)…but from what I understand of the episode so far…some villains are searching in that lake for treasure.
One of the evil guys turns against the other one and drowns him as he finds something (a rather disappointing scene).
The dead frogman gets found by the police. For some reason the TV shows lead actress get her hands on his wetsuit and starts wearing that mens-suit.
We can clearly see that it doesn’t fit her very good as she is surprising that guy. Logically it’s pretty loose. (DAMN!)
One of the good guys has to help the bad guys in recovering the treasure (the guy in the full face scuba mask).
They decide to get rid of him and closing the valve so he doesn’t get any oxygen while being trapped underwater!
Lucky for him our frogwoman shows up just in time.
But she has to fight off the evil guy in the red wetsuit first. As she is a trained martial arts expert…she uses her elbow to hit him right in the face, seemingly breaking his nose.
Of course there are some minus points. Her wetsuit is way too lose, the visibility is rather bad and the language problem. A shame the villainess doesn’t dive at the end and is only be seen exiting the water in her blue wetsuit very early on. Would have been great to have the two frogwoman fighting against each other at the end of the episode.
But this episode has a LOT to offer! Some great vintage wetsuits and nice diving scenes. Also I like how the villains try to drown that guy, a really hideous way….
The highlight is off course the scuba fight where our frogwoman has to face the evil guy in the red wetsuit! It could have been longer, but I really like the intensity. Filming thorugh her scuba mask for a second or two was an awesome idea! Don’t know why that wasn’t done more often.
Also it’s great that she let out some “grunting” noises to illustrate the intensity of the fight as she has to defend herself against his scuba knife.
Guess you may wanna know from which TV show and episode this is? Here you go:
Ok folks, time to make a BIG, juicy post about a new movie that deserves it! I am sure this will be one of my longest posts I made on this blog.
You all should know Deep Blue Sea (1999), certainly one of the best shark movies with a big budget (60 million $….and that was 20 years ago).
Then in 2018 there was a successor with a tiny budget, practically the same plot…..but it wasn’t good. In fact, it was quite horrible. It had a short and uninteresting scuba scene.
This June I posted about the trailer for Deep Blue Sea 3. It was promising as it had quite a lot of scuba content and the female lead had some scuba scenes as well.
This week the movie was actually released and I watched it in hope to be entertained and, of course, to find some good scuba scenes.
Deep Blue Sea 3 has an estimated budget of 5 million $. Certainly not an A-list movie.
I don’t know if they planned (before Covid) on releasing it on cinema screens, but I guess not, especially after the 2nd one was a disappointment.
Even after watching the trailer….I certainly didn’t expect to get HYPED like this 🙂
The setting is already nice with a tiny island that slowly gets swallowed by the ocean due to climate change. Even some parts are made by CGI, a pretty impressive setting for that limited budget.
Tania Raymonde, the lead actress, looked already familiar to me in the trailer, but I didn’t know for sure. After a check on IMDB I knew for certain: Actually I know her since the start of her acting career as she had a small role in “Malcolm in the middle” in the early 2000’s. She was also in “Lost” and “Goliath”.
After 90 seconds she appears in the movie in a black, smoothskin shorty…. and ….my eyebrows…. moved up already. 😉
Preview – scenes from before AND after her first dive in the movie:
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video – scenes from before AND after her first dive in the movie:
Luckily this was only the beginning. A minute later she already starts her first dive in the movie….in this wetsuit and a FFM.
(click to enlarge)
The scene was too long to stay on Youtube (it was blocked) so, check it out here:
If I would post all the scenes of her scuba diving …and/or …wearing sexy wetsuits/bikinis throughout the movie it would practically be half the movie 😉
Here a selection of her outfits that she wears both underwater and above the surface :
(click to enlarge)
The ultimate HIGHLIGHT of the movie is around minute 70.
[small SPOILERS ahead!]
The bad guys have placed an underwater mine that would not only kill the sharks, but also sink the (artificial) island.
So, Tania gets into scuba gear once again and wants to defuse the mine. But the villain has send a diver after her to stop her!
And what followed…let my lower jar drop… (+other things happened as well).
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
Over the years I have seen quite a lot of scuba fights. Some were good, other were bad.
But DAMN! THIS is how you make a scuba fight!!!!!
Ok, there are things you can improve here….but SO many things are done realllllly good:
– It’s a little weird that he doesn’t use the spear gun that he still had as the villain sends him after her. He also doesn’t have a knife, or he doesn’t wanna use it. And he also fails to use the element of surprise. She was fully focused on the mine, so he could have sneaked upon from behind her and rip her mask off, stab her, cut her airhose etc.. Maybe he was too incompetent, he underestimated her… or he just wanted to have a real challange instead of an “dishonarable” kill.
– The whole time you hear her breathing sounds from that FFM. It’s thrilling to hear both of them grunting and moaning as the fight goes on. You can really HEAR the struggle! A pretty rare thing when it comes to underwater fights.
– Tania really fights back! She is not the easy victim he may suspected. I love how she tries EVERYTHING: She attacks him with her knife, reaches for his mouthpiece, beats against his mask, claws into his hand, uses her elbow to hit him as he is behind her. Pretty sure I have never seen so many different moves from a frogwoman in a scuba fight! Love the fight choreography here! Often the bad guys (try to) yank out the mouthpiece of a frogwoman to drown her and that’s it. Tania has an FFM, so he can’t do that. She struggles frantically to keep the mask on as he is trying to yank it away from her forcibly.
– The whole struggle as he yanks on her mask…..is really awesome! A verrrry intense scene! A close up on his hand yanking on her mask would have been great, but that’s only a minor issue. My slightly bigger issue is that the white shark rescues her a little too early 😉
Would have loved to see her stuggling for some time without the mask, while her mask would be spitting our her precious air. However it’s great that he did manage to rip that mask off after all the struggle. The evil frogman had not luck, after he finally managed to overpower her, he had a BIG advantage…..he gets eaten… 😆
This scuba fight is one of the very best in my opinion. Certainly in my TOP 5 of all time!
It’s great that we still get fights like this one! I guess I know at least 95% of the good ones….so I am VERY happy about new material! 🙂
Fun fact with some spoilers about the ending of the movie, don’t read it if you haven’t seen the whole movie!
Actually all the women survive…and all the men get eaten/killed during the movie
I guess some trolls and other sorts of morons think that this movie is a feministic movie against men …and thereby part of a feministic worldwide conspiracy 😆

Thanks a lot for the friendly user who recommended me this short movie!
This one is rather….different, but offers a lot in terms of scuba peril.
This is not my upload this time, I simply provide the link. Normally I edit some scenes together, but this wouldn’t make much sense in this case. 😉
A family (incl. 2 hot daughters) arrives at a lake where they take a little diving trip.
As they emerge from the water….something is wrong….VERY wrong.
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video (for adults only):
(don’t let yourself be scared off by that thumbnail image…the movie is really good actually!)
[SPOILERS ahead, watch the movie first!]
Ok, I admit this scenario isn’t completely new, have seen it in two movies so far actually…..BUT… this short movie handles it really good!
The horror gets real as the family members start to turn on each other. They know, the only air left to breathe is in their scuba tanks, so each of them only think of themself.
How can I survive just a little longer? Their most primitive survival instincts take over and they are willing do everyting to steal each others air supply.
I have to say…I really enjoyed to see them fighting against each other like that. Especially as they try to steal each other regulators 😉
Of course, I would have been nice to actually see them diving beforehand, but I guess the budget for this one was really limited.
I’m not too happy about the ending as the grandma “speared” the last survivor of that family. Somehow funny, but not exactly realistic to nail her against the wall like that….and I would have liked to see her fighting over the last air tanks against some other folks.
But ok, after all… they are all doomed anyway…
One problem I got with this one is that often the air on these tanks isn’t turned on …or the tank is empty even it isn’t supposed to be. Because quite often you don’t hear the normal “hissing” sounds that these regulators make above the surface.
And as this is a rather small TV movie from 2000 with only 73 ratings on IMDB, I doubt that there will be ever a HD release, so this might be the best quality for this one…ever.
A young woman is on vacation with her parents. She falls in love with a handsome guy who happens to run a scuba school at the beach nearby.
She is curious and wants to dive with him. After a training session in the pool he convinces her to make a nightly dive to a wreck.
He has special plans for her…..murderous…. plans! He has a job to fulfill!
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
I envy those of you who just saw this scene for the first time!
There are some aspects, that could have been done better for sure…..but damn, when it comes to scuba peril scenes….this one is hard to top.
[watch the video first!!!]
First the sneaky bastard lures her into a wreck, perfect for his evil plans.
He is the experienced diver and she has nearly no practice at all.
But seemingly he is too sure of himself! Early on he makes a first mistake.
Instead of a suprising, simultaneous attack on mask AND regulator, he “just” uses one hand to attack her as he rips out the regulator. And he could easily grabbed her mask afterwards as she is completely surprised by his attack and needs some seconds to realise that he wants to drown her.
I love the shocked look on her face as she realises what her beloved instrtuctor is actually up to!
But instead he grabs her arms. Ok, if he would have be able to control her arms…that wouldn’t be a problem. Without her regulator she would drown quickly. But she manages to escape his grip!
And again, he makes a mistake….as she is reaching for the shaft of that champagne glass he could have easily ripped her scuba mask off which would have made her pretty helpless immediately.
But he somehow just pointlessly yanks at her….what is he doing???
However as she slams that glass shaft into his leg…. he starts to gain control over the situation again.
The way she manages to retrieve her regulator, greedily sucks for air and is so close to escape the wreck….is greatly done! Now he is in full control as he pulls her back in and starts yanking with force on one of her air hoses (I don’t think that it is actually her (main) regulator as she is breathing from it for some seconds afterwards. And she could have used her second regulator otherwise, pretty sure she had one. Of course only as long as there is still air remaining in her tank.
I don’t know if you actually could rip of such a hose like that…but sure as hell it’s a great view as her air starts gushing out with force! Especially as she reaches behind her to see if she can do anything about it.
As the evil instructor leaves her trapped in the wreck, she manages to stay somewhat calm and manages to focus on how to escape.
She realises that her quickly emptying tank builds an air pocket and gets the oxygen she desperately needs.
Also she finds a method to break through that window and thereby escapes the wreck.
Ok, that fact that she manages to swim up the whole way, even stopping so that he would drive away….might not be SOOOO realistic. And also if she would make to the surface, she might get the bends as the wreck was seemingly in some depth.
But of course, for the movie to go on, the lead actress had to survive this trap…
This scene has so much to offer….
A surprise attack where he rips out her regulator! A struggle! A counterattack from her!
He pulls her back in and ripps off an air hose! A tank spewing bubbles! Her desperate breathing in the air pocket!
Her struggle to break through the glass! Her desperate ascend and panic attack as she reaches the surface!
