This was one of my earliest posts:
….and I wanna make a new post about it as this one deserves a proper post with proper text!
And by making a new post I wanna present that scene/the movie to all folks who don’t know the original post from 2013.
This one is very special for me, and I wanna explain why, but first, check out some preview pictures and the video.
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
Ok, some backstory first.
The woman who walks into the lake is playing an actress in a movie…in the movie. She is the leading lady.
The villainess already killed off some folks throughout the movie with various methods (drowning (no UW footage), bow and arrow, etc.).
So, at the very beginning, you can see the safety diver who was supposed to look out for the actress in the lake already murdered (wasn’t shown in the movie).
She has the same type of wetsuit like he does, she is well prepared.
And damn, I just love her wetsuit, she looks great in that smooth skin wetsuit 🙂
The way the camera moves higher on her body and she puts on her scuba mask….well done!
What is funny is the fact that her first stage is on the wrong side, her left side….and so the regulator is also wrong as it is upside-down in her mouth (the exhale on top).
Reminds me of the scuba scene with Claudine Auger in Thunderball, where the same mistake happened.
Seems like the filming crew here didn’t know much about scuba diving 😉
Later on, as she is underwater the mistake got corrected.
The “good” woman is wearing a wetsuit and scuba socks under her coat they don’t bother in hiding it especially as she is out of the water again in the end. But I guess she was wearing that for the filming of that scene of the movie that they shot inside this movie…..quite confusing 😆
Underwater, there are two main problems for me.
The visibility is quite bad and I guess therefore the camera is very close to the two women, too close sometimes.
But I love the breathing sounds of the villainess and the fact that the other woman fights back, she isn’t totally passive like other women in other movies.
Several times she tries to steal the regulator of the villainess….. so great!
The villainess “only” needs to keep her underwater, even that would be pretty difficult in reality, as the other woman has no weights on her and is even wearing a wetsuit!
I think it would be hard to keep her from surfacing, but ok, only a small issue.
It’s also a little off that the guy does immediately find the two in a murky lake and that without a scuba mask. Yeah, there are bubbles from the regulator of the villainess, but I think it would be really difficult to find them quickly. Especially without a scuba mask.
It’s a shame that the detective was already in scuba gear and disturbs the villainess.
A shame that the villainess here wasn’t able to put up more of a fight. Quickly he yanks down her mask hard and thereby also removes her regulator. With one swift move, she is finished.
Seemingly he quickly yanks down her scuba hood as soon they hit the surface because her hood is already down as the camera shows her.
I love the way she looks as they drag her away in her gorgeous scuba outfit!
And the whole idea of having this villainess putting on that scuba gear to sneakily kill a woman in a film shooting is just brilliant and quite ….sexy….for me.
I mean it’s incredibly rare to have a frogwoman who tries to kill someone. Especially in such a sexy wetsuit!
This villainess here is one of my favorite villainesses of all time.
And even the scuba scene has quite some flaws, I will make an entry in the Hall of Fame, where you already can find a special “wetsuit cut” video of this scene!
Would have loved to see how she would have escaped from the lake in her wetsuit…
Here is the movie title:
What do you think of these scenes?
What do you think of her scuba gear?
