William Eubank impressed me with Love almost 10 years ago, then everyone jizzed over the Signal, which was a bit underwhelming. His latest, Underwater, is pretty fucking awesome. From the very start of the film we are in the main plot, a little over 90 minutes later and it doesn't let up. I have always found the sea to be fascinating, even scary just because we can send a man to the moon but not to the bottom of the ocean, this film tackles that. It is hardly the first to do so but it is refreshing to have a film like this in theatres. Take a working class crew from The Thing of Alien, set it underwater, have em face off with Lovecraftian creatures and toss in more Alien moments  and you have a solid film. It doesn't try to be anything more than what it gives us, and i got exactly what i wanted, and it isn't just Kristen Stewart's wardrobe.
