Deep Rising script
Deep Rising (1998)
Synopsis: Deep Rising is a 1998 American action horror film directed by Stephen Sommers and starring Treat Williams, Famke Janssen and Anthony Heald. It was distributed by Hollywood Pictures and Cinergi Pictures and released on January 30, 1998.

And the plexi-domed VIEW FILLS with an unimaginable horror. As far as

the eye can see, the entire murky landscape is filled with WHALE

BONES. A valley of death. Cluttered here and there, carelessly flung

about, are the rusting hulks of several ships. Seemingly ripped apart.

Clusters of shark cartilage float through the water like white ghosts.

The Captain, the Science Officers and the entire Crew just stare,

frozen in place by the strage horror before them.

CUT TO:

9INT. SHINKAI 9000 - NIGHT

The vessel cruises through the valley of death.

Everyone is nervously taking readings, making calculations and

adjusting equipment. Gone is the excitement and euphoria of the record

breaking. Several Crewmen cast nervous glances out through the plexi-

dome. Giant skeletons everywhere.

CUT TO:

10EXT. SHINKAI 9000 - NIGHT

The Shinkai approaches an eerie-looking rock formation. The robotic

arm comes out. The laser cutter steadies, aims, then shoots out its

blue beam and cuts into the rock.

WHOOSH!! A HUGE JET STREAM OF INKY BLOOD BLASTS OUT OF THE FORMATION!

CUT TO:

11INT. SHNKAI 9000 - NIGHT

The Captain and the Science Officers recoil as the inky stuff

envelopes the plexi-dome, completely blotting out the VIEW.

CUT TO:

12EXT. PALAWAN TROUGH - NIGHT

The Shinkai VANISHES into a huge cloud of inky blood. We HOLD for a

LONG OMINOUS BEAT. And then, like a slow-motion earthquake, large

boulders and giant crevices begin to shift in the murky waters. WHALE

BONES TOPPLE and SCATTER. Several feet under the ancient silt,

something is coming alive.

CUT TO:

13INT. SHINKAI 9000 - NIGHT

Everything outside the plexi-dome is still BLACK. Everyone is staring

at the position board, which shows a large section of the OCEAN FLOOR

STARTING TO MOVE, its contours incogruous with the rest of the graphic

representation. The Science Officers look stunned.
