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…. 🙂
Thanks to everyone who subscribed to my youtube channel! (And feel welcome to do so if you didn’t already)
The magic 1000 is reached and I made my request to youtube. Now it’s in their hands when I will post the first clip from “Eyes of the Storm” or from “S.O.S. Barracuda”.
If youtube reacts until next sunday, I will post the first clip then.
But for now I do have a real highlight for those who don’t know this scene already.
I thought about if I should post such a wicked, evil scene at my blog. Yes, I posted deadly underwater attacks before…but this one… wow!
It’s very wicked, but I must admit it arouses me big time (as a fantasy scenario)! But the ending….well, more on that after the video….
In this scene we have a female and male diver enjoying the underwater world. But one of them has evil plans….really EVIL plans…
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
Ok, first let me explain some things to those who are wondering what happened to her:
After she realises that she is out of air and that her buddy won’t help her (that bastard), she realises that she must surface….and that quickly.
She ascends to the surface very fast…way too fast. So I would say parts of her lung rupture….
Weird aspects of this scene:
Well, her behaviour (in parts). She realises that she is out of air. Normally you would grab the “spare” (your second regulator) to try to breathe from it. In case your (first) regulator would have a malfunction. She doesn’t do that…hmh, ok. Now she turns to her buddy, she signals him that she is out of air but he won’t help her and keeps a distance to her. Ok, she could go after him and try to get his regulator….but that might get difficult.
Now, she could get the idea, that he actually wants her dead. And she could try to check her air valve for the pretty big chance that he closed it. Of course she is out of air for some seconds but there would be enough time to reach for the valve, or take off the tank and check it. Would be very interesting to see what HE would do then…. 😉
Well, as she doesn’t check the air valve, she has only one option left…ascending quickly to the surface.
I don’t know how realistic is what we see know. With all that (fake CGI) blood and so on…
Arousing and non-arousing aspects of the scene:
Well, I must admit. The moment she is out of air, signals him and starts the panic sounds… that is very sexy. And it is really well done.
And I know that a lot of you guys will think like that about this scene 😉
And even the diver seems ….VERY aroused:
(find the… boner in the picture 😉 )
…well, who can blame him?
The aspect of her forced quick ascend is… really evil. I don’t like it. Pretty brutal. And unsexy….
In my version she would try to open the air valve again.
She would be successful, but in that moment… as she is busy with her gear …he would rip off her mask and cut her air hose afterwards. She would try to grab his regulator but without her mask she would lose the fight and drown.
And this scene is the opening of the movie, I would love to see a payback scene afterwards. Where he is drowned in a fight with a female diver (maybe her sister on revenge) that wants to stop him once and for all. But sadly, it is the only scuba scene in the movie….
Thanks to Gaston for this recommendation he made a while back!
I edited this video in a way that we basically have two scenes in it. In the first Lee Majors (aka Steve Austin in this one) tries some new underwater breathing device as two bad frogmen attack him!
In the 2nd scene a frogwoman uses the same device and is trapped in a cage so he needs to rescue her…
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
Well, the fight scene is pretty nice even if there are no scuba lady’s involved.
The second scene….well, as mostly it could have been better. The lock a frogwoman in a cage with a breathing device that only works with Lee Majors.
But instead showing her…how she doesn’t get any air and starts to panic…they show the fight on the surface. And even as Majors is underwater we didn’t get one good shot on Elke Sommer and her faulty breathing device…..
On the good site is her in that wetsuit. She looks really good in it.
And her lying on her back in that wetsuit….that’s my favorite part 😉
It’s a pretty odd plane of the evil guy…let’s push her higher…so that her air hoses might rip….
I don’t know if that would even work…but …..THANKS to the screen writer who thought about that way 🙂
I would say he could have used the cutting robo-hands to attack her…ok, maybe his range was to short for that. I think movement is very limited in that thing.
The only two things I would actually change:
The “suits” of Bond and Havelock are pretty unsexy. It looks like they had no real dive suits and took some rain clothes that Q found in the basement somewhere.
Real wetsuits would have been much better (for me).
If you look carefully at the closeup-shots…you might notice that the actress isn’t actually underwater! The problem was that Carole Bouguet couldn’t dive because of some medical issues. I guess she couldn’t make the pressure compensation because of it. So they used some tricks that it would look like she actually is underwater.
And I edited a very short video that focuses on her. In some ….sexy closeups:
