So, instead of showing you a scene from the episode “the amphibians” from “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea” (thanks to Fox – wasn’t allowed on youtube) I present you an even better scene!
A female diver investigates a sunken crate and takes some pictures.
But someone seems to have a problem with that….a scuba diver approaches at full speed to attack her!
So here is the video:
I love how she fights back, even if her knife attack isn’t very…..good.
Great scene in my eyes with one evil killer!
Wanna know the title of the episode and series?
*EDIT* March 23, 2022:
Time for a proper text!
I love the setup, she takes pictures of something she is not supposed to see and some evil frogman is there to keep that secret.
And he is really determined to stop her the way he swims, it looks like he wants to break some records.
He has to be in really good shape.
The way they struggle is well done even there are opportunities where it seems that they could have gone for the mask or the regulator of the opponent, as that would be the most logical thing to do if you don’t have a knife in your hand.
It’s a little odd that he didn’t attack her with a knife, but well, in that case, the fight would have been over very soon.
It looks good the way he pulls on her leg to get her close even he might have had the chance to surprise her from behind and then could have yanked out her regulator and/or yanked off her mask.
I like that she takes initiative and attacks him with her knife.
But well, it looks really odd the way her knife doesn’t hit him….. what happens here???
A smart move from him to pull her around so that he is behind her.
He grabs her regulator from behind and is now totally in control of the situation.
What is a little odd here is that she nearly drowns immediately.
Yeah, they cut away from her, but she is only out of air for a few seconds before she drowns, and that isn’t realistic at all.
However, this scene is an absolute classic when it comes to scuba fights, especially with a female diver involved as there are only very few of that.
Sadly there is no other scuba scene with a female diver in that episode.
If I remember correctly the camera makes some pictures of the fight as it hits the ground and therefore there is evidence that he is the killer so he gets what he deserves in the end.
