Set in Hawaii and shot in the Philippines, 1979's "Up From the Depths" is one of a billion "Jaws" rip-offs. IMDB bills this one as a horror/comedy, however I don't think comedy was a goal of the film makers. Directed by Charles B. Griffith, the overly stereotyped characters may indicate a comedy, but in fairness, perhaps the stereotypes are fair. For example...is it inaccurate to assume that ditzy swimsuit models are shallow and have inflated egos? With lots of nudity, gore, and a cool looking sea creature, this film is worth a watch.
