Well, this little gem has quite a lot to offer! Not only the film makers stole a LOT of music from the Bond movies 😀 (unbelievabely that that worked out)…. it has a frogwoman that gets chased on land and underwater! Can she escape the bad guys?

And here is the video:
Well….that was…odd! We have incompetent henchmen in the plane (who can’t hit her) and more incompetent henchmen underwater, who can’t hit her with spearguns …or catch up with her.
But if they are not able to kill her….she nearly does it herself 😆
But creative….to escape a plan she packs out her scuba gear. And what happens to the frogmen who are not in the sub? Really odd.
However the chase is pretty cool, something you don’t get to see that often. And the footage where she is unconcious underwater due to the explosion….great scuba peril!
Wanna know the movie from which this was taken from?
This one is one for my Hall of Fame! I had that one my “to put on the blog”-list for ages, time that it finally appears here. I guess many know it already, but for those who doesn’t know it…. you will see a very intense scuba peril scene.
Two divers (one female, one male) exploring in an underwater cave system. This is a dangerous task and they soon will realise that in a really bad way.
And here is the video (longer version can be found below):
Wow! That scene is really evil. The way she struggles to survive, then panics and wants to have that scuba mask for herself, clawing on it…
…and then tries to get it back…while she weakens with every second she is out of air. Intense!
In most aspects this drowning is very realistic, the way she swallows water after she runs out of air….you won’t see a scene like that often (in a “normal” movie or TV-series).
She has doomed herself after damaging her precious air hose in a tunnel before.
Some aspects of this scene are weird to me:
—> 1) Why are there no bubbles as she damages the air hose in the tunnel? She should realise the damage herself right away. Even it started with “only” a tear in the air hose…you should be able to see that. Or he should be able to realise that much earlier….
—> 2) Ok, buddy breathing with that equipment costs a lot of oxygen. Shouldn’t they try to move in a direction together? Anywhere to safety? Buddy breathing and staying on the same point….is completely useless since no help will come to them in time. They would run out of air and would both die.
—> 3) They dive around in caves without any backup systems? Ok, they had to leave the bailout tanks, because of a very narrow tunnel. But hey, shouldn’t there be a second regulator and other safety precautions? Seems pretty…. MAD ….diving in caves like that….in my opinion.
But ok, how many new scuba scenes like this show up? Well, very few in the last 20 years. And it’s my first scene where a woman with a rebreather drown…UNIQUE!
And the struggling and drowning is done very well!
…in which a young female diver was exploring a tight cave system. She was attacked from behind by a diver, who ripped of her scuba mask and cut her air hose!
She barely survived that encounter…and now she needs to dive again into that cave system.
And guess who is already waiting to get his second chance to drown her…. 😉
Note: This material wasn’t edited by me in any. I was lucky to find it…and it appears to be from a VHS recording…nothing better is available from this rare 90’s series.

And here is the video:
My opinion on it:
Well, she does look really great in that scuba outfit. Even if the picture quality is far from good.
A very brave girl diving alone into such a cave system… especially after the last encounter with the evil diver who nearly drowned her. She knew that he might be there again and yet she dives in there anyhow.
He does make a (fatal) mistake, first he reaches for her mask….but he doesn’t (manage to) pull it off. He grabs her mouth piece and yanks it away. What was his plan with the knife? Does he wanted to stick that into her head???!!! Very odd idea and he misses after all. But due to the fact, that she still has her scuba mask on, she manages to see and grabs the stone.
I like that she fights back this time…knocking him with that stone…giving her the vital seconds to get away.
Ok, again she is lucky that he is stuck under…whatever that is. But after 2 attacks she is still alive and the evil diver is dead after all.
A really nice struggle and fight!
In my eyes not as good as the first one…since I love to see cut air hoses 😉 …but this series managed to produce 2 great scuba scenes in only 6 episodes.
Pretty great job if you ask me!
And I do have a bonus scene for you!
I found this on YouTube, but that channel got terminated some months ago.
It’s nothing as great as the 2 fight scenes…but you might enjoy it anyhow:
These great pictures are from a VERY nice donor (who wants to stay anonymous) ….THANKS a lot! 🙂
He not only developed a great pictures story with 49 images(!) he also provided the sexy “subtitles” as well.
If you like sexy women in sexy rubber suits with scuba gear, a little suit-destruction and scuba peril…you might enjoy this a lot (as much as I do) 😉

And a quote from the donor regarding the suit of the “mistress”:
“…Oh and just for the record a total enclosure suit sort of like hers did actually exist in World War Two it was used by the Royal Navy and called the Sladen Suit though I don’t think it was ever worn by a woman and had a habit of killing the wearer and I think my version looked better on here….”
Ok, if you didn’t get excited by these images and the subtitles….you may be on the wrong website 😉
My favorite part is the underwater action. The way she pulls on her mask, stretching the rubber…
And than grabbing her breasts…strechting the material again… 🙂
And after that how she violently pulls her air hoses…leaving her without air. Slicing through the hoses and cutting off her mask from her suit…
Oh man! SUCH scenes in a movie….that would be SOOO great!
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….
First, thanks again to V for mentioning this movie. I watched the whole thing and it was very clear to me that is belong on this blog, even there is no frogwoman in it. But don’t worry….I’m pretty sure that most folks might like these scenes for different reasons 😉
Some words about the story for a better understanding of the video. We have a slighlty….mad… freediver who loves to wear his rubbersuit and strangle women in his free time. And we have a female detective (Yvonne Catterfeld again) that hunts him.
So I included every scene with the mad killer in his rubbersuit and the key scene where both met. And in that scene he uses his …freediving skills… to his advantage…. 😉

Here is the video:
Well, that is a special… nutjob! But I really like his diving suit…it is very sexy.
And it’s an interesting/unusual idea to let him run around in that suit when the crazy killer in him takes over…
And I really like that scene in the pool. A very nice drowning peril scene.
Interesting that they wouldn’t show his front side at any time (UW)….I am pretty sure I know the reason… 🙂
Perhaps the actor or stunt double got a little excited …being in such a suit..while pulling on Yvonne Catterfeld.
And I imagine a gender-swap on that scene. A sexy femalefreediver…in that outfit….pulling a man underwater. OH MAN!!!!
We need more crazy female serial-killers with a fetish for sexy diving suits…. 🙂
