666 Fridays: The Abyss

M 138 MIN
Watch Trailer


In 1989, hot on the heels of The Terminator and Aliens, James Cameron unleashed The Abyss on global audiences. Once a mainstay of the VHS and DVD rental market, The Abyss follows a civilian oil rig’s ultra-deep diving crew tasked with a search and rescue mission by the military after a nuclear submarine mysteriously sinks. Travelling into unknown realms, 25,000 feet below the ocean’s surface, a group of divers discover a mysterious, undocumented force with the power to change the world, or destroy it. Anchored by career best performances from Ed Harris and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, The Abyss is a weird and wonderful sci-fi treat, an underseen and underappreciated high concept underwater sci-fi flick from one of the genre’s masters. A late-80s oddity best seen on the big screen, The Abyss was a sign of things to come from James Cameron – worthy of rediscovery and reappraisal in 2019, join us for a screening of the original theatrical cut, 30 years on from its initial release.
