Default Looks Like "The Deep" May Be Coming To BD!

actually saw this 1977 movie in the theater.
It was made in the wake of "Jaws" as another underwater thriller.
It's actually pretty cool, and Jaqueline Bissett is hot in it.
just noticed there is a pre-order for the bd on amazon.com

EDIT July 7th is the release date.

I definitely remember this one because of Jacqueline Bissett's "wet look".

that's right!
I think it may be coming in June along with "Anaconda"
I actually noticed my dvd the other day, and was like "that would be so cool if that one came to bd."
crazy.
I'll never forget that electric eel.
It was scary for a little kid.

I've read the book which was decent, but never seen the movie. How's the adaptation for those have watched and read the story?

I've never read the book, but I enjoyed the movie.

In an Image catalog about 15 years ago there was a release date and details for an extended version of 'The Deep' on LD. As I recall, it was to be about 40 minutes longer than the theatrical cut. I was really pumped up, but the LD never was released.

-- Been waiting to see the longer cut forever it seems.
If there are missing details from the book, I'll bet they're in the longer cut.

I read the book and it was passable (better than 'Jaws,' at least), but it didn't seem enough to support a movie over two hours without it getting pretty dull, and from what I've heard that's more or less the case. I'd rather see a BD of 'The Island'--at least that's out-and-out trash, way too awful to be boring.

ahhh yes, I cant wait for this one. I love THE DEEP ever since I saw it as a kid on tv on a family holiday in Scarborough England as a kid..... lol...... that big eel enticed me in when i saw the tv spots for it.......

Still a great movie today - and far better than that attempted remake thing "into the blue" (- offiical or unofficial its the same plot...)
