Does this sound familiar?

Just a quick post as someone asked me if I would knew the movie title.

The scene sounds vaguely familiar, but I can’t come up with a title.

Does anyone know the movie/TV show that fits this description?

I’m looking for a scene from a 70s or 80s movie. It’s a blond woman in a black wet suit on a small yacht looking into the water, presumably waiting for someone to return. But she gets strangled from behind and falls on the deck. This all happens in a few seconds. The killer then rolls her body into the ocean and we see her floating with her eyes open.

If you can help with this….feel welcome to leave a comment!

Well, this mystery was solved quickly….check the comments 😉

A weird scuba lesson in a crap movie

[1st post for today]

I don’t use the word “crap” very often around movies. But here, it does fit really well!

Stumbled upon this one by chance as I saw the movie poster and the title.

Both were kind of promising, so I checked it out.

Well, the good news is the movie does have a scuba scene….the bad news is…well, see for yourself:

Preview:

And here is the video:

Ok, where to start?

What the hell is going on in this scene?

It starts as a rather normal scuba lesson, but things go really sideways….

Ok, she gets some kind of panic attack as she is thinking about some shark attack (nice plastic shark).

But the way she behaves is so weird and unlogical.

She could easily just stand up and surface as she is in very shallow water. Problem solved!

By the way: Where is the scuba instructor? Has he gone to lunch and left her alone with the scuba gear in the pool? Oh man, completely crazy and irresponsible as hell!

But what does she do instead of surfacing?

She rips off her scuba mask….ok, why? She seems to have problems with having water in her nose…so ripping off the mask wasn’t helping 😉

Then she spits out her regulator. Ok, well, now she sees nearly nothing and has no air while being in very shallow water….. well…..

What is going on? Seems like she has a death wish or is crazy.

Then the good guy comes to her help and “saves” her. Oh boy…

And by the way²: Why is she wearing shorts over her bathing suit? But ok, that is one of the less weird things here…..

Hilariously and/or sadly this is actually the only scuba scene and also the only scene with real underwater footage.

You barely see any shark in the whole movie which is quite funny if you know the movie title.

These days I don’t give much about IMDB ratings anymore, but the 1.6 is well deserved 😉

The female diver and the rubber monster! [original Flipper TV show – HD]

For today I have a short video with some nice scenes from 1964!

One year before the best scuba movie ever came out.

In this episode of the original Flipper TV show, a horror movie with an underwater monster is filmed.

And to no surprise, the monster is after a sexy female scuba diver….. 😉

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Yeah, of course, it is all staged, and only a guy in a monster rubber suit….but still….I like these scenes, especially as it is very nice to see such vintage TV scenes in HD.

A wetsuit would actually be sexier for me, but well, she doesn’t look bad in that bathing suit either. Imagine her in a black SPECTRE wetsuit with a double hose regulator….the monster yanking at her air hose….

There are more underwater scenes in that episode but not with the female diver.

The Deep House [scuba movie – review]

Earlier this year in May I made two posts about a new scuba movie:

https://frogwoman.org/the-deep-house-a-new-and-very-promising-scuba-horror-flick

https://frogwoman.org/the-deep-house-the-trailer-is-out

And I even heard about it much earlier in the year.

Now I was finally able to watch the movie!

Making a post about it as I usually do, would be quite impossible.

In the post, I will post some minor to average spoilers but NO big spoilers about the ending.

MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

Normally I post basically all the scuba scenes from a movie as they normally have only one or two.

In this case, that won’t work. Ok, I could post the highlight scenes of it….but I decided against that, at least for now.

If you are interested in scuba, scuba action, scuba peril….then this movie is a MUST-see for you!

The movie has an introduction of about 20 minutes, and then the whole rest of the movie is set underwater!

As the movie has a total runtime of about 80 minutes….well….yeah….this movie has 60 minutes of scuba diving in it!

Thereby the movie practically shows their dive in real-time!

That is why I can only recommend watching the WHOLE movie instead of some snippets.

Now to the movie, is it worth the time and money?

Well, I certainly think it is! 😉

The storyline is simple, a couple is filming themselves as they enter haunted houses, cool places, and such things and upload these videos for the followers.

They heard of a lake that isn’t on any map and that there would be a house in that lake in great condition.

So, they decide to dive down to the house where the action begins as they aren’t alone there!

The movie certainly takes its time before the horror really starts and I’m glad the trailer showed so little of it.

The overall idea of why this house is a horror house is solid. The atmosphere is building up really well as the two divers proceed further into the house.

The sound is really good, especially with headphones or a nice Surround Set!

The scuba gear is quite nice. Standard wetsuits with BCD’s on the back where they belong! And they are using solid full-face masks.

Now, some pictures from the movie:

(medium) SPOILERS AHEAD! I recommend watching the movie before you continue!

Like in Breaking Surface the main enemy of the divers is time and the dwindling oxygen reserves. But in a hunted house there are also other problems 😉

Here you have to accept the fact that supernatural things are happening. I mean there is a house in pristine condition in a lake that was “made” decades ago.

They really did a good job in building these sets and I’m looking forward to finding hopefully some “making of” videos on a Blu-ray release in the future.

 

Spoiler title
I had hoped for a little more (scuba) action, especially as there is a twist near the ending that is perfect to have some more scuba action. Yeah, there are some struggle scenes near the very end, but I had hoped for more. But yeah, it’s hard to satisfy me in that direction. The “ghosts” should be more dangerous, which of course is difficult as they are basically underwater corpses who are quite slow (naturally). The most danger comes from their supernatural abilities.

 

The movie has just the 2 divers and one other guy in it (picture 1). But shooting underwater is complicated and expensive!

From the trailer, it was already clear that there would be “only” this couple, but it would have been great to have perhaps 2 more divers down there with them. That would provide more action scenes with the scuba divers.

Or perhaps no supernatural aspects and some enemy divers that are there to protect the house for some reason. And then some scuba fights in an underwater house! How fantastic would THAT be?!

But ok, that’s my fantasy 😉

All in all, the movie is really good and delivers quite a unique setting with 60 minutes of underwater scenes!

Yeah, there is some wasted potential here and there, but still, it is a very entertaining movie.

*EDIT* As I just learned, there is a short scene AFTER the credits, so check that out 😉

In some weeks I may post my highlight scene of this movie, but as I said, watch the whole movie!

Ok, enough from me.

Have you seen the movie already?

3 female lifeguards in smooth skin wetsuits

The bad news first: Today, there won’t be a scuba scene in this post.

The good news: There will be a video with 3 stunning female lifeguards in smooth skin wetsuits!

Let’s start with some pictures:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Well, I don’t know about you….but I love such smooth skin wetsuits! Especially in black.

Funny how they tried to get rid of the “Orca” lettering on the wetsuits with different grades of success 😆

This first guy is really lucky, I mean she is already a gorgeous-looking woman…and now in such a suit….oh man!

The scene continues with an American flag being dropped in the ocean like the first one, but that was only more of slow-motion with heroic music, so I edited that out as it’s repetitive.

And this scene marked the end of the episode, the season, and the whole series as the show was cancelled after one season.

But quite a sexy way to end it 🙂

The car, the lake, and the female diver

2 of them are in the other one, can you figure out this mystery? 😉

Ok, time for a new post!

*EDIT* Thanks to the nice guy who recommended me this one!

 

Some pictures:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Yeah, no real action in this one….but I do like this scene!

Her wetsuit is nice, even I would prefer it with the wetsuit pants on.

In my version, some evil diver would have followed her as she discovers the car in the lake. He would have his reasons why nobody should know that besides him.

He would then attack her and they would have a long scuba fight. Perhaps the car could be directly involved as a “prop”.

At the ending of this video, I cut out a little bit as she starts crying in his arms. Nothing more to see there.

Two rubber frogwomen in a crazy James Bond rip-off movie

I saw this one ages ago but never thought about making a post about it.

But well, it deserves one for sure!

In the 60’s some agent named James Bond (you may have heard about him ;-)) started a landslide of Spy movies.

In a lot of countries, they started their own spy movies, more or less successful.

This one is quite special….for sure. And a perfect example to have some really great ingredients but to FAIL big time in the end (especially in terms of scenes we would like to see).

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here are the scenes:

Link

(it wasn’t welcome on Youtube, which is quite funny/ironic as this movie is stealing music and whole scenes from other movies :lol:)

Ok, easy Siggi, calm down…..don’t get….too angry…..easy…….

OH MY GOD! What are these morons doing? …….. Breathe…..

The wasted potential on this one is …quite…GIGANTIC!

Let’s start at the beginning. You have the villain and a henchwoman. Unlike in Thunderball the henchwoman here actually gets into scuba gear, into a sexy black rubber wetsuit.

Ok, she is not as hot as Fiona Volpe….but…..that is nearly impossible to manage anyhow 😉

But what happens then? They go into the water….. and then…..they show up at some underwater base in wet wetsuits. No diving scene with her! A real shame.

She looks quite sexy in her wetsuit, even in black and white. Sadly most of us here don’t understand what they are talking about.

That henchwoman gets assigned to seduce and kill the “Bond” of this movie but gets killed in the end, very much like Fiona Volpe in Thunderball. They were really “inspired” by that one 😆

Then we have a hot good frogwoman who fires with some weird gun (air pistol?!? Oh boy…..) at the evil henchman. She is seen in full gear….so, I think we will see her diving!

Well…..actually….no! WHAT? WHY?!?! She gets into all that gear…and her wetsuit doesn’t even get wet (from the outside at least).

I’m really angry at this moment at the movie….and now it gets really weird.

There is a scuba fight going on between the hero and one evil diver that is COPIED completely out of this movie/scene (which I cut out here):

https://frogwoman.org/the-sneaky-frogwoman-in-rubber

!!!

And now they did not remake it, it is the SAME scene!!!! They just copied (parts of) the underwater fight from the other movie into this one!

And seemingly no one had big issues with it as this version still exists like that.

But’s that not all. They even use a lot of the Thunderball soundtrack that they just use in their movie.

The usage of James Bond music in other movies isn’t completely new to me as I saw for example a Mexican movie with a lot of Bond music from the ’60s.

But using whole scenes….that is…stealing….on a whole new level 😆

It drives me crazy that the whole movie has two frogwomen in rubber that are never seen in the water at all! How great would it be if the good frogwoman would dive and then stumble upon the evil henchwoman! We could have had a great scuba fight…but no, not even anything close to that.

But well, in the end….we have two women in great vintage scuba gear….and that is something for sure! 🙂

But still ….I’m getting angry at this movie… 😆

The scuba killer, the VIP and a pool

First of all:

I posted a little update on Project F:

Project F

(scroll down to update on September 26)

So, this one is a little….”cheat”, but I decided to post it anyway as this scene is very interesting!

Let’s start with some pictures (without showing the killer):

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

Yeah, I know, no female diver in this one….but there are some interesting aspects to this one.

Ok, first of all, I would like the scene even better if the killer would be a woman. But female scuba killers are an extremely rare breed….

The scene itself is done pretty well with close-ups of him and her. He holds her down by controlling her arms, that’s very efficient.

She tries to escape his grasp but fails, so she is doomed without help from the outside.

The scuba dude is a stone-cold killer the way he drowns her without any emotions.

I wish he would get drowned himself in the end….but that doesn’t happen….even he would have deserved it.

His blue outfit is quite odd, never seen a wetsuit like that, odd fabric. But it makes a lot of sense to fully disguise himself in complete blue so he wouldn’t be easily spotted in the pool.

But…..I think she should have seen him anyway….unless he was in a spot where he couldn’t see him from the position where she entered the pool.

However, since he is using a normal regulator she should be able to spot his bubbles! Well, unless he was able to not exhale from the time she came near the pool.

Guess that is possible.

The next question is…where he was as the agents searched the garden? If he would be already in the pool….they should have seen or heard him! Perhaps he sneaked into the pool after the search, guess that is also possible.

 

In my version, the killer would be a frogwoman in black rubber (screw the disguise 😉 who sneaked into the pool as her victim was already swimming there. The swimmer would fight back, struggle hard, steal the regulator of the diver, but would be drowned in the end after she nearly finished off the diver.

Or she would pretend to be dead and then attack the frogman from behind, stealing his regulator…. 😉

The frogwoman and the diver who got sucked in!

That’s a title 😉

Well, it’s time for a new post and this one has a pretty long history.

I used to have this show some years ago and started watching it, but lost interest somehow after some episodes.

Then several nice guys recommended the show for its scuba scenes.

But in the meantime I somehow….lost….the show, don’t know how it happened.

I tried to get my hands on it again, but no luck…..for a looooong time.

Finally, some weeks ago I got it and checked every episode for scuba (and other) scenes.

This episode has by far the best scenes, and perhaps I don’t even post about other episodes…but let’s see.

Preview, scene 1:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Well, not that much action in this scene….but doesn’t she look incredible with the silver ScubaPro regulator?

I know there are some guys who really love to see such lips around a regulator….

Not a fan of her scuba mask as I don’t like such see-through silicone on masks, but well, only a minor complaint.

 

Preview, scene 2:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Quite a nice peril scene as she gets sucked into that pipe!

Ok, with that speed it’s hard to really see something but the sounds are….interesting.

And well, even the guy got injured as he got trapped down there….. he gets rescued by her, so….the day wasn’t a total fail 😉

I really love the regulator the two lifeguards are using. Sadly, these new, high-end Scubapro regs are pretty expensive…. I got a similar (older) one for Project F, but that isn’t as great as this version.

Damn, I really would have LOVED to see this frogwoman in a scuba fight in that TV show….but well, no luck.

Jessica Alba, a dead diver, a dolphin, and a maniac [+ BONUS scene]

[2nd post for today]

Today I wanna show two scenes from the very early days of the 90’s Flipper TV show.

The main scene features a very young Jessica Alba ( I guess only in the surface scenes) and her male buddy to dive down to a shipwreck.

They make an unexpected find….

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Well, certainly not something you wanna find underwater….or anywhere else. #dead dude

I like the performance of the bad guy on the boat as they return to the surface.

Really evil and creepy. Seconds later he even shots Flipper puncturing his fin with a spear! But well, I decided to cut that out of the video as they may spark some comments….

Of course, he is ok later on as this is a kid’s TV show in the first place. 😉

The two kids get locked up and get rescued later on.

 

As a bonus, I have another short scene that doesn’t actually have a frogwoman in it, but you might find it interesting anyhow.

You may have noticed that the air hose of the dead diver was sliced….well, here is the scene from earlier in the episode:

Damn, how great would this scene be if it actually would have been 3 frogWOmen? Or at least one….

However, it shows how ruthless the main villain is as he just locks the guy in there after slicing his air hose.

Later on in the episode, the bad guy battles a good guy and loses (but isn’t killed), but that scene is rather badly done…in my opinion.

These scenes can be found in this episode:

A frogwoman in black rubber in a shark documentary from 1971

I stumbled upon a very new documentary “Playing with sharks: The Valerie Taylor story” about the (very remarkable) life of Valerie Taylor.

Until then I haven’t heard about her…but that knowledge gap could be closed 😉

That documentary is well worth a watch, I highly wanna recommend it!

But this post is actually (mostly) about another documentary….a documentary that is mentioned several times in “Playing with sharks”.

 

A documentary from 1971, with sharks…and Valerie Taylor in black rubber for most time underwater!

The film crew is on the hunt for a great white shark as they wanna film him underwater as he is feeding….something that was never done before (before 1971)!

For you folks I made a highlight cut with my favorite scenes 😉

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

There are a lot more scenes of her in that rubber suit, but then the video would get way too long 😉

Some years earlier she might also have used a double hose regulator, but those were already on the retreat since the mid-’60s.  🙁

But I really love her suit…for me, it can’t get much better than such a black rubber wetsuit!

And did you realize that fish did bite in her air hose at around 2:38???!

 

That fish was just curious…luckily for her, that bite wasn’t strong enough to puncture her only air hose.

Of course, even that wouldn’t have been a problem for her as she is a very skilled diver and help would have been nearby.

But still, I really like that scene! I wonder what would have happened if she had had a corrugated air hose…. as these are way easier to damage/puncture.

 

The documentary itself….is very problematic….from today’s point of view.

The research on sharks was only at the beginning and it shows big time. This documentary was watched all around the world and I think it’s safe to say that it played an important role in the development of Spielberg’s blockbuster “Jaws”.

Taylor did actually film some shots for it some years later with her husband.

I still really love that movie, even I know it’s fantasy and that sharks don’t behave like that.

For the sharks that movie was surely catastrophic in many ways.

In the new documentary “Playing with sharks” that I mentioned earlier….Valerie Taylor reflects a lot on how her attitude towards sharks and sea life in general has changed over the years.

So, I can recommend to watch both documentaries as you then get the whole “picture”, even you should have a strong stomach for watching the old documentary as there is a lot of cruelty vs aninmals….especially whales….in it.

Here is a picture of the new documentary:

Also….a lot of interesting scuba gear from the ’50s onwards…in this one.

A moron trapped underwater….but 2 female and one male are smarter than he is [Baywatch]

Time for another good scene from season 10 of Baywatch!

Preview:

And here is the video:

Don’t know how that dude managed to get trapped like that…. perhaps he only wanted to be rescued 😉

In that case, his plan worked as one hot lifeguard was around to rescue him with her colleague.

Nice that the two women struggled shortly as the girlfriend didn’t want to surface.

Of course, I would have rather preferred to see her in a wetsuit, but it makes sense as there was no time to get into one.

A female scuba diver in heavy scuba gear in peril!

I heard about scuba scenes in an older family TV show with 6 seasons.

I skipped through every episode to check for female scuba scenes. Actually, there were only 3 of interest and only one of them has some interesting action.

Today I wanna present that one!

The scene is quite long and I wanna show it without cuts.

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

I know such heavy gear and drysuits are not for everyone’s taste, but I think some may really enjoy this scene! Her Kirby Morgan hardhat isn’t among my favorites for sure, but I guess some of you may love it.

The clear advantages here are that you can hear the communication between her and the surface and that we can also hear her breathing sounds….a LOT! You won’t find many videos where you can hear a diver breathing to that extend.

It’s nice that they change the classic “diver is trapped underwater with 10% air left” scheme here. It’s a family TV show and perhaps that’s why this is a rather “light” peril scenario.

She is trapped, but she is also not in immediate danger. Her air isn’t running out as she gets air from the surface. Also, she isn’t stuck, but “only” her air hose is, seemingly not damaged at all.

Honestly, I don’t know much about the scuba physics behind hardhat diving like that. She is in 300feet depth and that for quite a while. That is far below any “normal” scuba diving. Don’t know how much or if lengthy decompression stops would be needed with such a hardhat setup, but perhaps they just didn’t show them here.

It’s very odd that he didn’t accompany during the dive in the first place! Why did she go down there alone? Especially as it is an am important and difficult task. Not 100% sure if it’s the actress down there or if it is even a woman at all in the underwater scenes. Very suspiciously they are never showing the inside of her helmet in a way that you can get a good look at her eyes.

In my version, there would be perhaps another frogwoman down there with them. They both hate each other but are forced to work together on this task. As one of them gets trapped the other one sees an opportunity…. Perhaps she would then play with the air hose of the stuck diver….or something like that 😉

Wanna know from which episode of which TV show this is?

The episode name is “Deep Peril” (nice title) from season 2, that’s for sure.

The frogwoman, the falling rock, and her ruptured air hose! [+Bonus scene]

Time for certainly one of the best underwater peril scenes from Flipper!

Damn, I wish this newer Flipper series would be released on Blu-ray, HD TV/streaming, or at least on DVD at some point, as the picture quality is rather bad.

But as this show is over 20 years old and isn’t well known…this might never happen 🙁

Nevertheless, I really like this scene as there are quite some interesting aspects to it!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Ok, the whole “rock floats down, slices her high-pressure air hose, but doesn’t hurt her at all” aspect is really, really weird and makes no sense.

But besides that realism aspect….it’s a pretty great scene!

First of all, these two are experienced divers in the show, it’s completely irresponsible that her dive buddy decides to leave her and surfaces without her.

Well, the scene dictates that she has to be alone down there as the mysterious guy couldn’t save the “frogwoman in distress” when the other one would be there to help her.

It’s a little odd that she doesn’t react to the other woman trying to contact her and that she seemingly isn’t much concerned that her air hose was ruptured and doesn’t react to it. But ok, maybe she was in shock by the whole development, so…..I guess that’s somehow understandable.

Lucky for her the mysterious guy shows up, yanks her mask off, and puts the octopus regulator into her mouth. Nice timing dude!

And yeah…. spoiler alert….he is a real human…. and not a product of her imagination.

Later in the episode, they have 2 short dive scenes together without action.

And by the way: “My air hose was ruptured!” …..that’s a real trigger sentence for me! 😆

Wanna know from which episode this scene is?

It’s an Italian movie, but luckily at least some subtitles are available.

Preview:

And here is the video:

Yeah, I’m not a fan of such old bathing caps (scream grandma to me) and she isn’t wearing a full wetsuit….but it’s a sexy rubber vintage jacket, and also she is using a double hose regulator!

Enough reasons for me to put this scene on this blog! 😉

Never seen that mouthpiece, it looks like a verrrry simple design. But well, it seems to work.

Of course, I wouldn’t have “minded” if she would have run into some trouble underwater…but well it’s a solid scene 😉

She looks really stunning in that gear and I’m pretty jealous of him….I have to admit.

Sadly it’s the only female diving scene in the movie.
