Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.


Film review — Lords of the Deep

Practical effects teams were at the top of their game in the late 1980s and the model work here is predictably top notch. Okay, maybe not the creature of the feature. As for everything else? The sets, the costumes? The cast? Well, it is a Roger Corman quickie to cash in on 1989’s underwater horror trend (The Abyss, Leviathan, DeepStar Six). As a story it’s little to write about, so I shan’t. But it is worth a look for a scenery-chewing turn by Bradford Dillman, who acts as if he’s teleported in from a ’50s drive-in B-picture. ★★½
