Luckily a new, better copy of a certain movie showed up. 🙂
This is an UPGRADE to a scene that I posted in the very early months of this Blog, in December 2013.
Most of you should know this one….if not… you surely missed something!
This scene is undoubtful one of the very best scuba peril scenes that you will ever see, so it deserves this upgrade badly. And for sure it is THE best scuba peril scene from my country (so far).
The picture quality is slightly better now and I wanna make a worthy post that fits this EPIC scene.
This scene can be found in the Hall of Fame on this Blog….together with other great scenes!
And as this is a rather small TV movie from 2000 with only 73 ratings on IMDB, I doubt that there will be ever an HD release, so this might be the best quality for this one…ever.
A young woman is on vacation with her parents. She falls in love with a handsome guy who happens to run a scuba school at the beach nearby.
She is curious and wants to dive with him. After a training session in the pool, he convinces her to make a nightly dive to a wreck.
He has special plans for her…..murderous…. plans! He has a job to fulfill!

And here is the video:
I envy those of you who just saw this scene for the first time!
There are some aspects, that could have been done better for sure…..but damn, when it comes to scuba peril scenes….this one is hard to top.
[watch the video first!!!]
First, the sneaky bastard lures her into a wreck, perfect for his evil plans.
He is the experienced diver and she has nearly no practice at all.
But seemingly he is too sure of himself! Early on he makes a first mistake.
Instead of a surprising, simultaneous attack on the mask AND regulator, he “just” uses one hand to attack her as he rips out the regulator. And he could easily grab her mask afterward as she is completely surprised by his attack and needs some seconds to realize that he wants to drown her.
I love the shocked look on her face as she realizes what her beloved instructor is actually up to!
But instead, he grabs her arms. Ok, if he would have been able to control her arms…that wouldn’t be a problem. Without her regulator, she would drown quickly. But she manages to escape his grip!
And again, he makes a mistake….as she is reaching for the shaft of that champagne glass he could have easily ripped her scuba mask off which would have made her pretty helpless immediately.
But he somehow just pointlessly yanks at her….what is he doing???
However, as she slams that glass shaft into his leg…. he starts to gain control over the situation again.
The way she manages to retrieve her regulator greedily sucks for air and is so close to escaping the wreck….is greatly done! Now he is in full control as he pulls her back in and starts yanking with force on one of her air hoses (I don’t think that it is actually her (main) regulator as she is breathing from it for some seconds afterward. And she could have used her second regulator otherwise, pretty sure she had one. Of course only as long as there is still air remaining in her tank.
I don’t know if you actually could rip of such a hose like that…but sure as hell, it’s a great view as her air starts gushing out with force! Especially as she reaches behind her to see if she can do anything about it.
As the evil instructor leaves her trapped in the wreck, she manages to stay somewhat calm and manages to focuses on how to escape.
She realizes that her quickly emptying tank builds an air pocket and gets the oxygen she desperately needs.
Also, she finds a method to break through that window and thereby escape the wreck.
Ok, that fact that she manages to swim up the whole way, even stopping so that he would drive away….might not be SOOOO realistic. And also if she would make it to the surface, she might get the bends as the wreck was seemingly in some depth.
But of course, for the movie to go on, the lead actress had to survive this trap…
This scene has so much to offer….
A surprise attack where he rips out her regulator! A struggle! A counterattack from her!
He pulls her back in and rips off an air hose! A tank spewing bubbles! Her desperate breathing in the air pocket!
Her struggle to break through the glass! Her desperate ascend and panic attack as she reaches the surface!
