Summary: Invasion of the snot-aliens
Comment: Dr. Peter Lang is on the run. He's captured and interrogated, giving up a wild story under torture. Dr. Lang, along with military scientist Dr. Susan Cole, were sent on a Black Mission to Fairbanks Alaska where a classified underground bio facility is maintained. They've lost contact with the facility, and are unsure if the facility has been breached by terrorists seeking their military secrets.

Entering the 4-level facility in special biohazard suits, Lang and Cole and their black ops team search for survivors in dark, long corridors covered in water. The water is often slimy and crawly. Dr. Cole and Major Ross set up the lab, but while exploring Ross finds a survivor attempting to kill everyone by upping the radiation. She's got black eyes and bubbly skin, and while Ross tries to restrain her Cole comes in and coldly shoots her dead. Meanwhile, down a level, a man shows up wielding a gun. When the squad shoots the man down, he turns into a puddle of slime. Captain O'Brian gets the slime on her and starts melting, and when her eyes turn black she too is shot.

Cole is finally forced to tell the rest of the gang her secrets, that the secret object of the lab, called "PB3", is missing. They're not here to find terrorists, they're here to find the PB3, a liquid alien with considerable intelligence. PB3 produces the water and slime that infects humans, and it must be destroyed if it cannot be contained.

Now the team must make it out of the secure facility alive, while attempting to contain the PB3 by nuclear explosion. With the only exit destroyed (who would shoot at spiders with a machine gun anyway?) Who will survive? And can you guess the surprise ending?

'Deep Evil' is an okay film. I like underground movies, I like microbes and aliens (especially snot aliens), and I liked 'Creature From The Black Lagoon', whom some of the creatures seem to be stolen from. The acting is adequate but not spectacular, the atmosphere is good (long dark slimy hallways), and the snot extensive. If you like 'B' horror this is definitely worth a rental. Keep the Kleenex handy. Enjoy!

Summary: Deep cheap evil
Comment: The scary title of this movie makes a lot of promises, but sadly when the evil itself is revealed, you will be filled with disappointment. The special effects that are being used already look medieval these days and the aliens are hardly scary.
This movie is a sad attempt to combine some of the great stuff from other movies.(SARR)

Summary: NOTHING NEW BUT NOT SO BAD
Comment: DEEP EVIL offers little novelty in the genetic experiment gone horribly awry genre, but it's decently made and generates a few chills. The movie opens with a doctor escaping from a mysterious lab and accused of being a terrorist. We find out that this secret lab has enforced a lockdown, snaring 14 of its staff for some unknown reasons. We find out too that the lab had cloned an alien organism which if set loose would destroy mankind as we know it. Enter the beautiful doctor, the gallant special ops force and a creepy monster that makes drops of water seem terrifying. Lorenzo Lamas, Ona Greuner, Thomas Scott, Will Sanderson and Adam Morrison do okay in the lead roles and the effects (most of the time) are above average. It has a twist ending that smells of sequelitis? Not bad for a b flick.

Summary: If "The Thing" had a sequel...this would be it...
Comment: This movie has a great plot, and pretty good acting. The movie has an extremely EXTREMELY similar plot to the first Resident Evil movie, but has somewhat of a "The Thing" blend to it.

Deep Evil is about a select handful of military ops going on a mission into an underground bio lab to retrieve any surviving members of a lockdown, within the lab. When they reach the lab though..things get dangerous. They find the entire lab covered in water and slime, which has no explination as to how it got there. They then come to find that a "secret experiment" which we later find is named "PB3" is missing from the lab.

Soonafter, the movie gets interesting when the team meets an infected civilian woman, who contracted a virus from the alien or possibly the slime/water in the lab's surroundings, the team then takes her out, after she tries to up the radiation of the lab and kill herself and everyone in the lab.

From then on, the movie only gets better and better, as members of the op. begin to become infected by this virus, and soonafter die.

Then finally the ending...i'm not about to spoil anything, but expect the unexpected. It's not the most "good triumphs over evil" ending, in the world. But it's a good one, for sure.

In the end, "Deep Evil" actually satisfied my thirst for suspense as a horror movie. And the fact that it tied in with a few other movies (Resident Evil 1, Mimic, The Thing) only made it that much more interesting. It wasn't the most original movie in the world, but it was def. worth the 1.5 hours of view to see it.
