Review: (#1) It’s dull and uninteresting, though it seems like it’s trying to look a bit like a poster featuring Ripley from Alien.

(#2) It might be frightening, but the lighting and balance of the design don’t make it particularly scary. (#3) A chaotic design that strangely works even if not very well.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: There are elements here that want this to feel like an underwater version of Alien and we’ve been fooled before on entries in the franchise pretending to be something else and then confirming to be part of it. Then again, there are elements that could make this another entry into the Cloverfield saga, which is also well known for its far more successful attempts at misdirection.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
