DEEP BLUE SEA 2: The Sequel We Wanted, But Not Like This!

Deep Blue Sea from 1999, with Thomas Jane, LL Cool J, and Samuel L. Jackson is a massive guilty pleasure of the shark/horror genre. The film had a worldwide gross of $160 million from a $60 million budget, with a profit of $100 million one would expect a sequel to get made, but that never happened.

Almost 20 years later, the worst kind of sequel, the “direct to video” has taken a chunk out of the Deep Blue Sea mythos.

In DEEP BLUE SEA 2, shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun (Danielle Savre) is invited to consult on a new, top secret project run by pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant (Michael Beach). When science meddles with the time-tested process of nature and nurture, the outcome can be deadly.

Directed by Darin Scott and written by Erik Patterson, Hans Rodionoff, and Jessica Scott; it’s like they didn’t even try to make a new film or expand the universe. In a world where Blumhouse can make a decent horror movie for $10 million, it’s a damn shame Deep Blue Sea ends up with a Video OnDemand sequel.
