Movie Quote(s):
  • Sixpack: You know, I stood next to a guy who blew up his suit once. I'll tell you, that was not a pretty sight. Jones: Leave DeJesus alone, man! Sixpack: One tiny little hole in a fucking toe of his suit, man. No bigger than your dick. Yeah, the way the ocean came in, the pressure just crammed his whole body up into his helmet. We just buried his helmet. That would have been you, DeJesus. DeJesus: Hey, I know about implosions. Sixpack: Yeah, I bet you do. I bet you were imploding in your pants.
  • Martin: I realize you must have gone through hell. Justin Jones: Gone? Bitch, we're still here!
  • Martin: How do you feel? Steven Beck: [punches her] Better. A lot better.
  • Sixpack: [shaking a dead sea spider at Willie] Look at my foot! This bitch put a goddamn sea monster in my bunk! Steven Beck: How do you know it was her? Sixpack: It was her, goddammit! What, are you calling me a liar, Beck? Steven Beck: That may be the size of it, bubba.
  • Elizabeth 'Willie' Williams: [Checking on Jones who's just made it to the surface] Jones? Steven Beck: Jones? Justin Jones: So where's the goddamn hurricane? Yeah I made it I'm fine I'm alright I'm alright.
Movie Trivia:
  • In designing the creature of the film, Stan Winston and George P. Cosmatos went through a mini-library of marine life pictures and medical reference books. They were inspired by the physiology of the natural world, and came up with the idea of combining human body parts and elements of deep sea marine life into an unnatural creature never seen on film before.
  • 50 to 60 spec drawings of the potential look for the creature were submitted to director George P. Cosmatos. All the drawings were combined for the final definitive look for Leviathan which was a huge, fish-headed beast with dagger like teeth with the ability to absorb recognizable characteristics from its victims.
  • There are very few scenes in the film that were actually shot underwater, as production went for the "dry for wet" look. With most of the scenes inside the Shack taking place on soundstages and a tank measuring 130ft x 270ft.
  • Part of the diving suits used in the film were borrowed from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), with the rest being football equipment.
  • Chicken feathers were used at one point of shooting the underwater sequences to suggest things were floating around in the water. According to Alex Thomson this did not work because the feathers floating side to side instead of up and down and the idea had to be scrapped altogether.
