Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Deep Star Six (1989) was the first release of several underwater-monster-themed feature films released during 1989-90, including The Abyss (1989), Leviathan (1989), The Evil Below (1989), and Lords of the Deep (1989), and 'The Rift' (aka 'Endless Descent', 1990). With the exception of 'The Abyss', none of these films were box office hits.
  • [?] Robert Skotak and [?] Dennis Skotak created the underwater visual effects. When a crew member asked Robert why he chose to work on such a low budget film, he replied, "It's four weeks paid work, and on a Roger Corman movie, you get to work with people on their way up, and on their way down."
  • For Priscilla Barnes, 1989 was a year of contrasts. She also played Felix Lighter's bride in Licence to Kill (1989).
