Scuba and wetsuit scenes from “Der Hai von Mallorca” [SOS Barracuda movie series]

So, the 2nd movie of the SOS Barracuda series was aired yesterday.

From the description and pictures, there were surely male scuba scenes in it.

But luckily, there is a female scuba scene in it as well in the very beginning of the flick!

Also longer and much more interesting than the tiny scuba scene in the first one:

The scuba scenes were oddly edited together with some scenes at the airport, so I edited that stuff out of the video as it was most annoying during the scuba scene.

And here is the video:

This was the only female scuba scene in the movie.

Ok, as much as I love to see some frogwomen in peril, there is SO much going wrong in this scene!

  • Ok, it can happen that you dive against some rocks as she does but the way she does it, it shouldn’t damage the valve(?) like that from the angle she hits the rocks.
  • Also, there are bubbles coming from nearly every direction :lol:. How is that supposed to happen? Ok, the valve is (seemingly) broken but it looks like she is leaking air in quite a lot of different places! Most bizarre!
  • Ok, let’s say this happens to you as a diver. You could continue to breathe as long as the tank isn’t empty and ascend slowly. If you are then out of air you could make an emergency ascend. Or better, just wait for your buddy to reach you in the first place. That situation shouldn’t be dangerous at all with the buddy close by. But what does she do? She doesn’t use any of her 2 regulators, she doesn’t ascend, she doesn’t swim towards her buddy. She seemingly spits out her regulator and then calmly is waiting to drown!?! Surely she is surprised of how quickly she loses her air reserves, but her reaction doesn’t make any sense at all.
  • This is SO odd, who thinks of such a scene? Pretty sure no one involved with the script had any knowledge of scuba diving. Or the writer was just going to create a dangerous situation for he could be able to rescue her, which is later in the movie an important plot point…..no matter how crazy it is.

However, as much there is to criticize, I do like the scene. Certainly a nice, odd addition to the collection.

And in general, it’s never wrong to have a scene where oxygen is escaping like that. The audio alone is…… 😉

Odd little detail:

They are using scuba gear from Mares. Whenever the whole lettering is visible it gets blurred, so you can’t really see it very well.

Although you know in any case that “Mares” is lettered there.

Especially in other scenes, it’s most obvious that they tried to hide the fact that this is Mares equipment (very unsuccessful though! 😆 )

Why did they do that?

My only explanation is that Mares was perhaps ashamed of being involved in this movie?

Perhaps they thought it would be bad publicity…..

 

In another 2 weeks, the next movie is shown and then I can make a longer cut with improved picture quality of this one:

What do you think of these scenes?

Let me know and leave a comment!

 

 

 

 

S.O.S. Barracuda TV airing!!!

[last updated: January 24]

In late December I made a post on this cool forum:

https://www.underwaterclipsource.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=37572

….and it’s about time that I post here about in the page as well!

 

I posted this on the forum on December 29:

Hopefully you know my post about an episode from S.O.S. Barracuda which includes something VERY, VERY, VERY RARE…..
http://frogwoman.org/female-scuba-diver … -barracuda


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 :lol:
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….

Will keep you updated!

 

 
 

WANTED: S.O.S. Barracuda

Perhaps anyone out there can help with this….

I recently discovered some pictures of a german TV series called “S.O.S. Barracuda” and that showed something VERY unique to me. I had that show on my radar for some time, but these pictures motivate me now to the highest level….

You may have noticed that I love scenes where female scuba divers get …into trouble. 😉

An “Air runs out-scenario” is interesting and a scuba fight is even more interesting. What I really love are scenes when the air hose gets cut and the air streams out the severed hose. Such a scenario is very rare… I know quite a lot of the action scuba scenes from movies and TV and I know only close to 10 scenes where a female diver is attacked and her air hose gets cut. 

What all these scenes have in common: The female diver survives the attack…every single time. Which is kind of odd, since there are some scenes where female divers are actually drowned by others. But in all these scenes the regulator gets pulled out (or the air valve gets closed).

So, in these pictures of S.O.S. Barracuda I found proof for a scenario I never witnessed before:

A drowned female diver WITH a cut air hose!!!!

 

Here are the pictures:

(click to enlarge)

I don’t know about the order of these pictures, but WOW…… promising as hell!!!

And I don’t know how good the fight scene actually is, but well…. I WANT to SEE IT….I MUST SEE IT! I WILL SEE IT!

(…..insane mumbling continues….)

That series consists of 8 movies shot from 1997-2002 for german TV channel RTL. There are certain aspects that makes it VERY hard to get that series:

– It was made for TV, was shown the last time in 2002! It was never shown on TV for the last 16 years…

– There are no DVDs of the show.

– Only very few people seem to know that show…only 13(!) rates on IMDB, which is next to nothing

– I wanted to ask RTL for it…but it seems that RTL won’t give out material of “fiction”, you can only get recordings from stupid TV shows like “Let’s dance” from them…

– I do have some good sources for old movies and TV stuff, but….. no luck as well

– I don’t know why the fuck I didn’t knew about these movies back then, could have recorded them….but somehow they slipped my attention

 

So folks, I ask you! Do you have the scuba scenes from that series? Or even better….the whole thing?

Or do you have more information on that series?

Please leave your comments below!

And of course, you will be rewarded for info that leads to me getting that series! Some kind of swap deal (movies, TV episodes) and/or free months for the VIP club.
