Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy”, Version 2 [16th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the fifth video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

As mentioned in the previous posts the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

Frogwoman Kara is taking pictures of some secret stuff, but frogwoman Lucy isn’t too happy about it!

That leads to a scuba fight… 😉

 

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy, Version 2”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:08 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

This is the second video with the “scuba spy” scenario (the first one is video 12).

In this version, Frogwoman Kara is holding onto her Camera with the precious images she just shot. Of course, that is a rather big handicap for her as she can only use one arm/hand to defend herself against the attacker.

I guess in a long, scripted version of this scenario she should have some kind of bag/pocket to stash it away or at least have it tied to her wrist with a tiny rope.

Or she could just let it float to the bottom, for that the camera would need some weights, as it floats to the surface… as you can see in video 12.

Frogwoman Lucy really seems to enjoy yanking at other divers regulators 😉

This video has a very short alternative ending at the end.

 

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

 

Where to watch it?

The video is available in the VIP club in November alongside the other content….as it is under 4 minutes of running time!

Here is a quick overview of the content of this month:

https://frogwoman.org/frogwoman-vip-club-2-0-november-2022

 

You can download these videos in the VIP club, but only for personal use.

Don’t share them with anyone…. anywhere!

It’s pretty simple, I had to spend a lot of money:

All that scuba gear, location rent, and the money for the frogwomen….

If I don’t make enough money with these videos….. I won’t be able to make new videos at some point.

So…. I hope you appreciate these videos and want to see more in the future!

And after all, you get a LOT of videos (7 in November) and other content for just 10 Euro (or even less per month if you get into the VIP club for more than one month).

I would say that is quite a bargain! I also wanna make longer videos in the future and they will be much more expensive in comparison (but also better).

They will cost 1-2 Euro per minute, which is the “normal” rate for such videos.

I will also keep doing videos for the VIP club.

This and other “Project F” videos will be rotated out of the VIP club in December and then return in 3-4 months.

Other Project F videos will return to the VIP club in November and 2 new ones will premier that month.

What’s next?

I will post (at least) 2 more videos from that video shoot in the next weeks.

One last one (from this video shoot) in December (+maybe another one in December?)

And of course, there will be new material next year as well.

The one I will post in early December is my favorite video from this video shoot.

In that one Frogwoman Lucy wants to repeat what she did at the end of video 5, it has something to do with a scuba knife 😉

Diver wants to drown his wife to get insurance money!

Not in real life in this case, but in a movie.

Thanks to the guy who recommended me this Chinese movie!

100% sure that I would have never seen this one without a recommendation as Chinese movies mostly are never shown outside of China.

Preview:

And here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

I bet you are confused right now! 😉

Well, I was too… until the guy who recommended this one explained it to me.

I would love to watch the whole movie, but since I don’t speak Chinese, that doesn’t make sense.

I hardly doubt this movie will ever get subtitles or a dub.

The overall story is seemingly that he wants to drown his wife and then get the insurance money, claiming she died by accident.

But he then gets stuck in a time loop(!) and in one version he kills her again (version 2 in the video), perhaps in others too but it isn’t shown on screen.

In the end, he gets out of the time loop (as he doesn’t kill her in version 3 in the video)… and there seems to be a happy ending.

Now to the different versions:

Version 3 is interesting as the audience thinks he will turn off her air once again, but actually, he doesn’t do it this time.

Version 1 is shot quite weirdly as big parts of the action aren’t shown properly. It’s cut too fast and she drowns nearly instantly.

Version 2 is the most interesting and best for me. It’s shown how he turns off her air, and the struggle is a little longer. She fights back a little more, but still drowns very fast. Certainly, there is a lot of room for improvement, but it’s a good and thrilling scene for me.

The title is seemingly:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt18395698/

 

My original info was:

深潜

aka “Diving day”

aka “Deep diving day”

(according to the guy who recommended the movie to me)

What do you think of those scenes?

“Swimmer VS Frogwoman” – test video [15th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the fourth video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

As mentioned in the previous posts the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

In this video, you can find 2 takes as we tried a “Swimmer VS Frogwoman” scenario.

 

Swimmer Kara and Frogwoman Lucy in “Swimmer VS Frogwoman”, 1080p, 60 frames, 1:47 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

I think the “Swimmer VS Diver” scenario is always interesting even though most of these rare scenarios in the movies end with the death of the swimmer in 99% of all cases.

I would like to build in some surprises in a long, scripted version so it won’t be the standard outcome. Or maybe the expected outcome and some surprises on the way to it. I won’t spoil it here 😉

In these two test takes, we tested that scenario.

Several problems make this scenario challenging.

First of all the swimmer has no air source underwater (surprise!) and therefore she can’t stay down for long during such a fight. That makes filming more difficult of course.

We tested in the shallow end of the pool to stay on the safe side. In the long and scripted version, I would like to use the deep end.

The swimmer has no weights, so she is very buoyant, especially as she is wearing a full neoprene suit here which increases her buoyancy. The diver must pull her underwater and keep her there… which isn’t very easy.

In the full-scripted long video, we will add more weights to the frogwoman, which should help, even if it will make normal swimming more difficult for her. Perhaps she will wear a 2nd weight belt that she would drop once her evil job is finished. 😉

The snorkel mask we used here isn’t so good for the scenario.

At the end of take 1, the mask started to fill with water, which wasn’t supposed to happen as Frogwoman Lucy didn’t attack it prior.

Maybe we use swimming goggles for the long, scripted video.

 

 

Fun facts:

At the very end of take 2, you can see how Kara yanked the mask of Lucy away from her face so it flooded completely.

The first time that Frogwoman Lucy was blind underwater and close to defeat.

 

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

Scuba villainess VS female police diver! [Scuba fight][Blog exclusive]

Thanks to the guy who recommended me this one!

The description of this scene sounds too good…

An evil female diver is sending top-secret info to a foreign government. A female detective is on her trail and we have the final showdown between those two in a scuba fight!

That sounds like a story that I would have written 😉

Let’s check out the scene and see if it can live up to the promise….

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1scpXSOW2y4_LYZyqfm15Vc4zeDtoVDra/view?usp=sharing

(EDIT October 17: Video was blocked…. had to move it)

Watch the video before you continue!

I wanted to show both in their wetsuits on dry land and build in short scenes with both of them prior to the underwater fight.

I cut out some surface scenes as they slow down the action.

 

A little confused by the video? (It helps to watch the scene several times)

Let me summarize the action:

The villainess is sending top-secret data via that computer thingy.

Meanwhile the “good guys” arrive on top and check out the boat of the villainess, the villainess knows that as she has cameras on board.

The villainess hides and waits for the detective to arrive.

Her knife attack fails and the detective yanks out her regulator.

She puts it back and attacks a second time with her knife.

The detective manages to close the air valve of the villainess who retreats then.

Hmh, let’s start with the positive aspects in my opinion:

We have some good moves like stealing a regulator and closing the tank valve. Plus there is a scuba knife involved, even if it is quite tiny.

Also some (weird) yanking on the strap(!) of a scuba mask. Very unusual, never seen that in a movie or TV show!

It’s good that they have some different colors on their scuba gear so you can tell who is who. Nothing I should mention as a positive aspect, but that isn’t something that can be taken for granted as some movies/TV shows demonstrate.

 

Now to the bad aspects…

The background music may be ok as long there is no action. But as the scuba fight starts the music doesn’t react at all to it, completely lame snooze music.

That is totally bizarre as the music is supposed to underline what is happening on screen. The music/sound department screwed up here big time 😆

You can actually see a safety diver/cameraman in the background several times during the underwater action…. that isn’t supposed to happen 😉

As the villainess attacks, the “good” diver has suddenly no regulator in her mouth but a tube of some sort!?! WTF?! (at 02:54)

The yanking on the strap of the scuba mask of the detective is a nice aspect, but why can’t she get her scuba mask off in the process? Come on, that is quite easy then.

The whole action is mostly quite weird as they don’t control each other’s arms but just hold onto each other for most of the time.

Their hands are free very often…they could easily go for the other one’s mask or regulator, but they don’t… they are holding back a lot.

It’s a little weird that the villainess gives up like that.

Yeah, her air was turned off, but that isn’t a problem since the detective isn’t following her.

She could easily turn it back on and attack again. But I guess she was demoralized after she lost twice times against her.

Well, if you take the description the actual video is a little disappointing if you consider all aspects.

But it certainly delivers a pretty long scuba fight between two frogwomen, so that is already a great thing! 🙂

Yeah, many things could be improved here… but is certainly is a remarkable scene.

After all, there aren’t exactly many female scuba fights to be found in movies.

Fun facts:

The villainess works for the “evil” Americans while the detective works for the “good” Chinese.

Looks like this Chinese TV show has some propaganda messages in this one 😉

Wanna know from which movies this is?

Don’t have an IMDB link since it is a Chinese TV show, but here is the title:

谍战深海 aka “Ocean espionage_spy war deep sea”

What do you think of that scuba fight?

Frogwomen Ruby and Lucy in “Treasure hunt” [13th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the second video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

Also the video premiere of Frogwoman Ruby!

Sorry for the delay! Some logistical problems had to be solved first…

As I mentioned in the previous post the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

 

Frogwomen Ruby and Lucy in “Treasure hunt”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:57 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

This is the first video with Frogwoman Ruby in action! And she did a fine job without any prior scuba experience. She used to play underwater rugby in the past for a while and that may be the reason why she is pretty fearless and was a good match for Frogwoman Lucy. 🙂

She also had no problems

Spoiler title
with Lucy closing the air valve on her tank (we tested it once on the surface).

Sometimes it wasn’t easy for me to keep up with the two, as they made good use of the space they had in that deep pool as they swam at a pretty high pace.

At the beginning of the video (before the fight), you will notice

Spoiler title
blue bars over certain small areas of the screen (for about 20 seconds in total).

Sorry for that, but the frogwomen are visible all the time, so it’s not such a big issue. I had to do it since the security diver was visible in these parts of the video and …..well…. he wasn’t supposed to be visible 😉 A mistake that won’t happen again.

I was glad that I could use the stunning Cressi Triton suit this time and it looked great on Ruby. Perhaps I will buy that suit again in M or L.

I found it as a real bargain (in comparison to its normal price) in size S. But that suit is too small for most women …in this size…

For a test video that has basically no script, I am really happy with the result. It was a good test to see how the Frogwomen would handle such a fight scene and react to certain aspects.

Certainly wanna use that “fight over treasure” scenario in the future again, but then with a detailed script (incl. storyline), and a proper ending.

 

 

Fun facts:

Check out how Ruby is clearing her mask in the background as Lucy has found the gold coin.

The gold coin was in fact a standard greek coin (from before they got the Euro as well).

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

As I mentioned before the audio here was challenging with a sound the camera picked up from the pool machinery.

So far I haven’t figured out how to suppress that sound without damaging the “wanted” audio. But well, it isn’t really a big issue here as the 3 regulators here make a lot of noise so that background noise isn’t really distracting (as you can hear in the preview teaser video above).

 

Where to watch it?

*EDIT* November 1

The video was available in the VIP club in October alongside the other content….as it is under 4 minutes of running time!

It will be available again in the VIP club in January!

Here is a quick overview of the content of this month:

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy” [12th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the first video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

As I mentioned in the previous post the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

 

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:25 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

I do know 2 movies/TV shows that have this “Diver takes pictures and gets attacked” scenario. James Bond in Thunderball and the frogwoman in the “Silk Stalkings” TV show.

And in the future, I wanna make a version with a detailed script where a frogwoman takes pictures of some secret stuff and gets attacked by an evil frogwoman who wants to stop her (and kill her).

For this video, I used only some basic instructions on what the two should and could do and it was a one-shot without any re-shoots.

My camera was a little shaky in the first few seconds. I’m pretty new to the whole filming aspect and it’s not easy to totally focus on the tiny camera screen when such a scene happens in real life right before you 😉

It was also not easy to follow these two with the camera, but I think it worked out quite well even though it’s a bit of a challenge to move around in 3 dimensions and stay in a good position to the moving action.

I am very happy about how the 2 frogwomen (Kara + Lucy) did such an action scene underwater! I mean the two have basically no scuba experience and only had that mini scuba session from the first video shooting back in December. I am glad they returned for another video shoot!

They were really brave and the scene worked out pretty fine in my opinion.

Frogwoman Lucy really likes to steal regulators and likes to be a scuba villainess 😉

We had only 5 hours to shoot and a LOT of time was needed to assemble the gear and all that. And I wanted to get several quick scenarios done in that time to gain experience in shooting underwater action scenes.

I will write detailed scripts for the next shooting, as long these videos generate enough money to cover at least the expenses.

Yeah, the video here is short, but it has a rather long scuba fight (90% of the runtime). In the end, most scuba fights in movies or TV shows are much shorter in the end.

With a detailed script I wanna make a video with this scenario that will have at least 5 or 6 minutes.

But we made a 2nd version of this fight, I will post that in the next weeks as well.

 

Fun fact:

At first the fight was supposed to be about the camera but that quickly floated out of sight and mind (can be seen on the surface in the last seconds).

Next time I will need to add some weight into the camera 😉

 

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

As I mentioned before the audio here was challenging with a sound the camera picked up from the pool machinery.

Still working on improving that with audio filters, so you will find 2 versions of this. One with the original audio and the latest version with audio filters.

You can check the (original) sound in the video above. It’s not really bad, but I still try to find a way to improve it.

2 guys, a submarine, a female diver, and a lot of sharks! [Blog exclusive]

About one month ago I made a post about a certain movie:

https://frogwoman.org/2-female-scuba-diver-a-wreck-and-a-shark-blog-exclusive

Now it’s finally time to post about the long finale of this flick!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

2 guys, a submarine, a female diver, and a lot of sharks! [Blog exclusive]

(not on Youtube since I had bad experiences with this one on that platform)

Ok, let’s start with the positive aspects here for a change.

She looks gorgeous, her FFM is quite nice and the scene is pretty long.

It’s cool that she rescues the guys here and also distracts the shark from the one guy.

In terms of scuba peril, there isn’t that much as the possibilities are quite limited in an action scene with a shark.

My sharks in my movie would rather be trained to bite into the air hoses…instead of eating the divers 😆

I mean when you go for weird sharks that behave so weird, you could easily do that scenario as well 😉

The negative aspects here are primarily for me the bad CGI and the roaring sounds that these sharks make. That is so laughable!

Sharks can’t make such noises and they are trying to surprise their prey… and such a roaring would be really not helpful 😉

I mean that is like making a movie with goats and they would just start to fly around.

But well, it’s a fantasy movie after all, so… with sharks behaving like that.

Also, quite odd that they attack the sub but then stop and let the divers swim around without attacking them… are they on a break? 😉

But all in all a solid scene in my opinion.

Female diver gets chased by male diver

This one is a classic that I know for a while but somehow didn’t upload.

By now a fine HD quality is available… so this scene finally makes it to this blog.

Let’s check out the scene!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

You may already know what my problems with this scene are 😉

She looks great in her bikini, even though I would prefer a wetsuit.

It’s great to have him chasing her, but of course, I (and nearly everybody else) was looking forward to a nice scuba fight scene.

Yeah, that doesn’t happen 🙁

A shame she didn’t also have a knife and confronted him.

Many might say that it’s odd that she is able to outswim him as she manages to not only get away from him, there is quite some distance between them as she leaves the water.

But I can easily accept that a well-trained woman like her can outswim an average guy.

I don’t get why he waited so long to attack her and especially since he was drawing the knife as she was watching him. He wasted the moment of surprise.

I haven’t watched the whole episode (the 2nd part of a two-parter) and the scene on the boat quite confuses me.

She swims away from him just to go back onto their boat?

He throws the knife after her (deliberate miss?) and she is quite relaxed and didn’t even grab the knife that is next to her.

What happened? He was trying to kill her and she doesn’t seem to have a big problem with that!?

From what I saw the two really liked each other and he found out that she is actually a cop and has to kill her.

But well, seems like he isn’t so motivated to do that and she has no problem with him trying to kill her.

Quite odd……. maybe I will watch both episodes one day, but this way it’s all quite confusing!

 

However, we do have a hot frogwoman getting chased by another diver, which is still a rare thing….so, after all, I enjoy this scene, even though it has some flaws.

In my version, they would have fought underwater and only one would have returned to the surface. 😉

Wanna know from which episode this is?

IMDB-link

IMDB lists that 2-parter as one episode, which is quite confusing… after all, that episode would then be 90 minutes long.

2 female scuba diver, a wreck, and a shark! [Blog exclusive]

Well, I guess you know what might happen in that video….

This one is from a movie I know for quite a while and that was recommended at least by 2 folks over the years.

I posted about the first movie of the movie series in two posts:

Post 1

Post 2

This movie will be featured in (at least) one future post as well.

In this early scene of the movie, two women dive together into a wreck. But some shark is quite hungry…

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Video

Scenes from the first movie were blocked on Youtube back then and this is quite brutal (even you don’t see much) so I decided to post this one on Drive as well.

Well, for me the scene is ….ok. Some others may like it better than me… I guess.

The shark scenes where a real shark was filmed are good, the cheap prop they used for some closeups is really… cheap.

Yeah, I know the budget was small and CGI wasn’t really an option back in 2000…but the result just looks bad.

Also, the roaring sounds of the shark are just laughable! Reminds me of Tomb Raider 2 😉

What morons come up with such fantasy sounds?

The camera work during the attack is quite bad, most likely as they couldn’t show the prop shark for too long.

On the plus side, the dive equipment is solid and there are some intense perilous moments as the divers are quite “loud”.

Ok, for me that kind of peril isn’t exciting at all… but well, others may see that differently.

Also, I wonder why they didn’t have at least one or two minutes with these women on the surface with some dialogue lines.

I mean she gets chomped by that shark and we know nothing about her and didn’t hear one word from her. That way the audience doesn’t care too much about her.

The next scene that I will present in a future post is more interesting… at least for me.

The evil frogwoman strikes yet again…. in a DIFFERENT TV show! [2 scenes]

Hah, slightly confused by that title? 😉

This is a very interesting case and I’m sure you will find it very interesting!

This time without preview pictures as the post contains 4 videos (2 of them new to this blog).

THANKS a lot to the guy who mentioned that episode of this show. I am quite surprised I didn’t hear about it earlier.

 

Remember this epic scene?

This was my post from 2013:

https://frogwoman.org/the-frogwoman-strikes-again

Now check out this scene, which can be found in another TV show made 4 years later:

Hmh, somehow it looks quite similar….even there are no underwater shots in this one and she makes it to the ladder before she gets drowned.

The attacker is basically not shown here except for the hand in rubber that grabs onto her ankle.

It’s rather odd that the evil frogwoman is able to pull her down with ONE arm while she has to fight her own buoyancy.

I mean the other woman has a solid stand on the ladder and is holding onto it with both arms.

Guess the evil frogwoman has exercised a lot 😉

 

But this was only the beginning….. 😉

Remember the ultimate highlight of that TV episode with the evil frogwoman?

My original post from back then:

https://frogwoman.org/female-divers-attacks-man-pulling-lake-quality-upgrade-longer-cut

Now check out this scene, which can also be found in that TV show made 4 years later:

Well…. quite odd! They re-used the complete underwater footage here!!!

The scenario is exactly the same. The detective (Ben Gazzara!) wants to meet with a woman only to be attacked by a mysterious frogwoman in rubber!

But there are some differences (despite the different actors):

Here we actually see some very short scenes of the evil frogwoman above the water.

In the original, they fight underwater and suddenly….cut….and he is in a hospital. One of the worst cuts in the history of humankind! ARGHHHHH!

In this “remake” we see him pulling the obviously defeated frogwoman to the shore, with her mouthpiece in his hand!

But then…. I start yelling at the screen! AGAIN, they don’t show the villainess anymore except for some seconds where she is already covered in a blanket.

How bizarre is that? Why have they shown only so little of her??? I would have loved to see the defeated frogwoman in her wet rubber suit on the surface! Just add a dialogue there and show her!

The murderer is finally caught and she just vanishes without saying a word!

DAMN! Really frustrates me big time! That and that the moment of him overpowering her underwater isn’t shown properly.

However the flaws, that ending… in both versions…. in one of my all-time favorites!

It’s such a unique scenario. An evil frogwoman in rubber who wants to drown a guy in this scene ….and already did drown a woman earlier in the episode!

How often do you get that in a TV show or movie? Spoiler-Alert….Basically NEVER! 😉

Ok, it’s hard to say if the diver who actually did the diving during filming is actually a woman….since the underwater picture is rather dark… or if they used a male diver to double for the villainess.

However it is supposed to be a woman, that is 100% clear.

So, why the same scenario and the same underwater footage?

These episodes are from different TV shows but are basically identical as the script is nearly a copy (some slight changes).

With some quick research, I found out that both TV shows were made by the same company (Roncom Films) for the same network (NBC).

The earlier show is from 1964 and the “remake” is from 1968.

So they “just” re-used footage that they shoot some years earlier.

Quite bizarre that they just remade an entire episode just some years later in a different TV show.

Don’t know why they did it, perhaps they were just lazy and recycled the script 😆

In the original, the villainess is the secretary of the guy who was in love with the drowned woman from the beginning of the episode.

Here is a picture of the villainous redhead from the original (Fiona Volpe vibes):

Really a shame she wasn’t shown on the surface in her rubbery frogwoman suit. 🙁

In the remake, she is his personal physical therapist (and less attractive)…but that is already one of the biggest changes from the original to the remake.

I guess you might wanna know now from which TV show that remake is?

(IMDB says episode 22, my file says 23… look for the title of the episode)

The freezing frogwoman VS the certified maniac

I know this movie since it came out in 2015 and got the UK DVD back then (for some reason it wasn’t released on Bluray?).

It was recommended to me at least 6 or 7 times since then but I didn’t make a post until today.

Why? Well, I was unsure about what to post about this movie. If I would post every scene that is somehow (scuba and/or wetsuit) interesting to this blog… I would have to post at least 70% of the movie…. as here the main actress is in a wetsuit for basically the whole movie(!) except for some flashbacks and…

Spoiler title
…the very first and last minutes of the movie.

So, I decided now to focus on the scuba part of the movie and cut out some minutes where the villain is just starring down at the ice for loooooooong.

What happened before the video scenes?

Well, basically the woman realized that her husband is a murderous psycho and he wants to kill her.

He is a scuba instructor and has special plans for her after he drugged and kidnapped her…

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

Well, quite a sinister and crazy dude!

And that is just the part where she has her scuba tank… there is a lot more to come.

First, let’s start with some things I don’t like about this scene:

The whole aspect of how much air is in her tank is quite weird. Right before the video starts he empties her full tank from 3000 PSI down to 1000 PSI in a matter of seconds by sucking on the regulator and pushing the “air shower” (the translated german term) button on it. That would never ever work that fast. Plus why does he use the “air shower” button and has the regulator in his mouth? That wouldn’t work for long as someone can’t take in that much air. And it would take much longer than in the movie.

Plus the whole air pocket aspect. Is it possible that there is such a big air pocket on a lake under the ice? I mean the exhaled air from her tank would be there for sure, but that would be completely useless as this air is already “used. (*EDIT: My mistake)

In two takes the camera focuses on her depth instead of her gas gauge!

Well….why? I mean she is just under the ice the whole time and has only one way to go (up). The audience knows that, so why show it twice?

Perhaps, as the gauge is near zero… the movie makers confused it with the gas gauge?

Very odd….

And then the gas gauge very quickly goes from 1000 down to near zero in a matter of seconds! How is that possible? Or is that supposed to be a time-lapse?

 

However, there are a lot of positive aspects for me as well:

It’s quite a unique setting! I mean a guy who wants to drown a woman but puts a wetsuit and a scuba tank on her?

Certainly never seen that in any other movie….

The whole “running out of air” while the killer is just above her is very suspenseful!

The frogwoman is attractive and her wetsuit is quite nice. Of course, I would have preferred a black smooth skin wetsuit, but well, this way the heroine is very “flashy”.

And as the villain here is 100% evil and crazy… it’s a very intense survival scene…and that’s only the start for her.

About the whole movie:

There a very long takes of him just staring down at the ice. I mean the movie has only a length of about 70 minutes but it seems like they had to include a lot of overly long takes to even get to that length.

Plus his whole plan is kind of odd. I mean ok, he is crazy.

His whole plan for her is quite odd. I mean he certainly wants her to suffer before she dies.

He gives her a scuba tank but it is only one-third full.

So I guess he was “worried” that she might freeze to death before drowning? Even I can only guess how long someone could actually survive the ice-cold water, even with …an inappropriate… wetsuit on.

He gives her a wetsuit but that is only a little protection when the water temperature is around zero (celsius).

He straps the regulator to the back of the tank so she has to struggle a lot to even reach it.

Plus he is there on the ice but basically can’t see anything of her struggle, except some silhouettes and some air bubbles.

I guess he enjoys the whole situation big time, otherwise, he wouldn’t have come up with such a complicated scenario for her.

I am pretty sure that the screenwriter might have some aqua fetishes 😉

 

The flashbacks are interesting and important to the story, but too long for my taste and drag down the intensity a little.

I guess I will make a special cut of the whole movie where I cut out the flashbacks and overly long scenes of the villain doing nothing but starring for loooong takes.

 

But this movie is very much unique and very suspenseful, as I am cheering for her to find a way to get out of this horrible situation.

Yeah, this is a low-budget production and the acting isn’t always very good (especially the wooden villain) but certainly a very interesting scenario that you won’t find like this in any other movie.

Certainly, a movie that you should know and I can only recommend watching the whole thing!

Here are two posters of the movie (minus the title):

Very good motives in my opinion! Even the right one looks like bad CGI.

Here is the movie title:

Frogwoman VS 5 male divers! [aka How to totally ruin a great setting]

A nice guy recommended me a movie:

“…. and it involves one female diver against 4 male divers. The female diver also surfaces and fights men on a boat.”

Well, for a moment I was really thrilled! A female diver fights against 4 male divers??? Or even 5 if I’m counting right… Sounds great, sounds awesome!

But then I thought…. well, why don’t I know that scene after 900 years of searching for such scenes? And I got a really bad feeling…. 😉

Here is a preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video from hell:

Well….. OH MY GOD!!! Or rather… WTF!!!

Ok, you have a frogwoman heroine and several evil divers…. and they actually do fight underwater…. and THIS is the result of the filming?

ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!

I’m not sure if I should laugh my ass off or break down in tears…. or both.

A perfect example of how to totally ruin potential great scenes 🙁

Some folks (not me) are complaining that the scuba battles in Thunderball are too long and “slow” as the water slows down the action.

I also remember that the director of the Thunderball remake “Never say never again” was also no fan of underwater fights.

So, perhaps the director of this “movie” thought about how he could make these fights more intense and with more speed (in his opinion).

And his solution was seemingly to just increase the playback speed… of many action scenes (even on land).

Well, the result is laughably bad… in my opinion… and totally ruins these scenes.

The murky water is also a problem and they seemingly had no underwater lights at all…

In the end, I can’t enjoy these underwater fights at all and am really annoyed afterward.

The wetsuit of the frogwoman is uninteresting and very loose… I guess so the actress/stunt woman could do her martial arts moves. Quite a turn-off.

I’m 99% sure that these scenes were partially cut, as we don’t see the first two frogmen get hit by the spear, but well…. cut or not cut… all hope is lost here.

 

Oddly enough a german DVD of this “movie” is released in a few days for very little money, guess I will buy that one for the scuba collection as a perfect example on how to NOT do a scuba fight scene.

There are no more scuba scenes with her in this one.

Wanna know the title of this insane flick?

A sexy female scuba assassin and her gorgeous target

Today I wanna present an ongoing picture storyline that is incredibly sexy!

Check out the pictures:

*EDIT* June 3: added 3 more pictures!

*EDIT* June 26: added 3 more pictures!

(click on the images to enlarge them to full size)

Well…. just …. WOW!

The scuba assassin is just incredibly sexy in her black rubber/latex(?) suit and FFM. Love the corrugated hoses 🙂

The gorgeous target is also smoking hot. As I have a thing for pantyhose/tights… it’s a great bonus that she is wearing tights!

The way they struggle on the yacht is already very…. stimulating… and the fact that the assassin is still breathing with her FFM is just great.

And it gets even better…

Love how the two struggle underwater as the assassin tries to drown her target.

It’s such a great aspect that the alleged victim is fighting back and starts to pull on one of the air hoses of the diver!

Perhaps she already pinches the hose and thereby the diver does get much less air than normal. 🙂

The combination of the sexy women, their great outfits, and the scuba peril is quite brilliant.

Can’t wait how this story will end!

If you check this blog frequently you might suspect what I wanna see next… 😉

I will update the gallery here once there are new pictures.

Crazy guy wanna drown 2 women! Incl. a fight with female scuba diver! — UPGRADE [incl. longer video + 2nd video]

I re-uploaded the video to this old post just some weeks ago:

https://frogwoman.org/mad-man-wanna-drown-2-women-with-a-female-scuba-diver

Shortly after I realized that there was a better video quality available (720×480) and I re-watched the movie yesterday.

So, I will make a BIG UPGRADE to the old post:

— better video quality and a longer cut of the scuba highlight of the movie

— a 2nd video just for the blog, not for my (public) Youtube channel

— a proper text for this interesting movie

 

Preview, main scene:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

This movie is quite interesting and has unusual dark humor.

Ok, let’s start with some negative aspects before we come to the good ones.

The underwater scene is scripted quite odd in some places.

The female diver, who is not a cop, but works as a movie prop master with the other blonde guy…. is the one here who puts herself in danger to save lives.

She cuts one woman loose and then gets attacked by the villain.

Meanwhile, the cop is above her and doesn’t help her. Yeah, he gives his regulator to the freed woman but doesn’t attack the villain.

But the “good” divers more or less ignore the other woman (red blouse) and she drowns because of that. They could have saved her (most likely) if they would have worked together.

But well, the movie itself ignores her at that point completely as well as she isn’t shown 😆

Two more (odd) things I noticed:

Surprisingly they incl. an underwater upskirt shot here as the producer sinks down with her skirt and pantyhose …. #odd #rare

If you look closely at the face of the freed woman in 2:57, you can see the marks of a scuba mask. Well, she wasn’t wearing one in the movie… but seemingly in the preparation of this shot.

 

I really like how the frogwoman here dives down quickly and decisively to save these women.

She manages to cut one loose and also ties the bad guy to the weight. Good job!

But what does she do next? She let the bad guy take her out of the action by letting him flood her mask and rip her regulator out!

How does that happen? She has all the advantages she can have. She has a wetsuit, a scuba mask, a scuba tank, and a knife!

He has nothing, can’t see much without a mask…. but manages to overpower her.

But then both are failing…. in a way.

He should have secured that regulator to be able to breathe…or at least try to do that. Her regulator was his one chance to survive here.

Ok, she was (seemingly) surprised by her flooded mask and regulator.

But she should have been able to put the regulator back in and clear her mask as soon she was away from him.

Ok, maybe she doesn’t have much experience and was shocked….but why does she stay on the surface then?

I don’t get why she stays there and doesn’t try to save the other woman….

 

However, it’s a really fine peril scene nonetheless!

A very rare setting with that insane guy and his drowning fetish.

In my version, he would attack scuba divers underwater and there would be some nice long scuba fights in the movie 😉

 

You now think that he actually drowned there very calmly?

Spoiler title
Well, at the end of the movie it gets revealed that he is actually still alive! Don’t have the slightest clue how the hell he did that as good guys stayed there for quite a while.

 

But I wanna share another scene from the movie.

In this earlier scene, he does make his first attempt to drown the female lead….

Preview, scene 2 (earlier in the movie):

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

Good to have some more short scenes with our frogwoman in this one!

It’s quite odd that the bad guy drops his victim right on top of three scuba divers…

I mean, their boat must be close by and he should see and hear all those bubbles that they make.

But ok, maybe he was so blind (and deaf) as he was occupied with her….

The poor female lead is quite shocked by what she sees underwater….understandably.

The oldest corpse looks a little too “fake” and seemingly he killed all the others in a very short amount of time as they still look very “fresh”.

I like the plan as they try to fool him with that crafted corpse to get him on camera (as he visits them daily), even though that plan doesn’t work out and he can escape.

There are some more diving snippets with the villain but without any female divers.

 

There is actually a sequel to this movie.

I watched it very long ago and am 99,9% sure there are no female scuba scenes in that one, but I will check that.

A vintage frogwoman with a fake scuba tank gets attacked by a male diver! [Blog exclusive]

Time to finally post about this classic scene!

In the past, this was blocked immediately by Youtube (back in the early days of the blog) so I more or less forgot to make a post about it.

Here is a long cut of this scene in good video quality.

Watch the video before you continue!

What I would give to have that scene in full colors…..

There are 4 seasons of this TV show. 3 of them were filmed in color. Sadly this is from the first season 🙁

However, I really love that scene despite some flaws!

Thankfully they had a female diver to play the role and didn’t use a male to play her action part as they often did in the 50s and 60s.

A really big minus point for me is how passive she is. But well, fits the time in which this was shot.

She basically does nothing. She doesn’t defend herself and she doesn’t attack him at any time! She did have quite some opportunities to attack him, but she is basically a Scubadoll in a rubber suit 😆

She just holds onto him while he is occupied with her tank harness, she could easily rip off his mask or rip out his regulator! Yes, she doesn’t have her scuba mask, but he is so close in front of her, that she should be able to see him well enough.

The fact that she doesn’t need her tank to breathe underwater is a minus point as well, but you can easily change that in your fantasy 😉

If I remember the backstory right she has the special ability to breathe underwater.

The bad guys are using her as a weapon to fight the submarine of the good guys. Her tank is actually an explosive device.

I love how the guy immediately goes for her mask to blind her (temporarily). He knows what he is doing.

It’s very rare to have an unmasked woman in such a scuba fight scene.

Her “unmasked” face looks quite sexy…

He has to get rid of her explosive “tank” and therefore he strips her of her scuba tank as well and thereby she also loses her regulator (that she needs in my fantasy).

The explosion hits her, and she is unconscious for the moment.

The naughty frogman takes ….advantage…. of that:

Damn, that stunt diver(?) really had a great time! I guess they had to repeat some of these scenes quite often 😆

I added the scene where she is unconscious and gets carried around in the submarine as that is quite sexy as well.

Again I played around with the simple tool to colorize one picture:

Yeah, not exactly a great result but at least better than the black and white version.

Pretty sure that is the Voit logo on his chest. Look like they used the same suits later on in Thunderball (different colors).

This episode actually aired earlier in the same year as Thunderball did (1965).

Wanna know from which episode this was?
