Overview

Reflecting studio executives' taste for material that crosses genres, this film from director David Twohy and co-screenwriter Darren Aronofsky mixes the war movie and supernatural thriller genres. After they rescue a trio of survivors that includes a nurse, Claire Page (Olivia Williams), from a British hospital ship sunk by the Nazis, the crew of the American submarine U.S.S. Tiger Shark comes to believe that their vessel is haunted. The unexpected death of their commander forces first officer Lt. Brice (Bruce Greenwood) to take command, trying to avoid a German destroyer on the hunt for his ship, while investigating the series of mysterious incidents that are terrifying his crew. Is the Tiger Shark haunted, or is there something otherworldly inhabiting the waters where the sailors are currently trapped? Originally entitled "Proteus," this project was slated to be Aronofsky's follow-up to Pi (1998), but the writer/director opted to helm Requiem for a Dream (2000) instead. Below co-stars Scott Foley, Zach Galifianakis, Dexter Fletcher, and Holt McCallany.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
It's too bad this haunted sub thriller got lost in the marketing with Ghost Ship, a similarly-themed effort that opened nearly simultaneously to negative reviews in October of 2002. Director David N. Twohy creates the same eerie vibe of his Pitch Black (the sting rays even make a brief appearance), casting the sets in unsettling, uncertain light and making every character a suspect. The acting is restrained, to the detriment of a few scenes that bog down the pace a bit, but Matt Davis should make sure anyone involved with Indiana Jones sequels sees this -- there are some shots that make him look exactly like a young Harrison Ford. Enemy depth charges and mass paranoia give rise to effective wartime action, but heightening the haunting aspects -- and the unexpected ending -- are Twohy and co-writer Darren Aronofsky's main goal. Thriller, action and horror renters will be on top of Below.
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
In the handsome, haunting submarine thriller Below, the usual perils of deep-sea maneuvers are heightened by psychic unraveling.
Washington Post - Desson Howe
An ingenious hybrid of submarine movie and ghost story. And there's a wee bit of Macbeth in there too.
