To finish off October, I wanted to review one of my All Time Personal Favorites. And that is the underrated 1989 creature feature Leviathan starring Peter Weller, Richard Crenna, Amanda Pays, Ernie Hudson, Daniel Stern, Hector Elizondo, Michael Carmine, Lisa Eilbacher, and Meg Foster.
And yes, I know it’s not Halloween. But I wanted to upload it early (because, let’s face it…you and me and everyone will be busy watching horror flicks on Halloween, lol). And this is the last flick I’ll be reviewing on October, so I hope you folks have had a good Halloween season.
For a much shorter and much more straight forward review, you can check out my older review here:
Leviathan is a 1989 science fiction horror film about a hideous creature that stalks and kills a group of people in a sealed environment, in a similar vein to such films as Alien (1979) and The Thing (1982).
It is one of many underwater-themed movies released around 1989, including The Abyss, DeepStar Six, The Evil Below, Lords of the Deep, and The Rift (Endless Descent).
The film was directed by George P. Cosmatos, the musical score was by Jerry Goldsmith, FX were done by Stan Winston’s studio, and the production design was by Ron Cobb.
