SPOILER: Filming 'Corinne Alphen''s death scene presented two challenges. First, it was difficult to get cameras and equipment into such a confined space. Also, Alphen expressed reluctance about the scene and wondered if it would be safe. To assure her of how safe it was, the wife of one of Lommel's assistant directors got into the tub as the underwater explosions (simulating the electrocution) went off. Seeing it was safe, Alphen filmed the scene.
