Deep Rising ★★★★

Packs just about everything you could ask for in a B-movie creature feature - terrific Rob Bottin effects, a pitch-black sense of humor, an anarchic attitude, Treat Williams playing the bastard love child of R.J. MacReady and Ash Williams - into a neat hour-forty-five package that knows exactly what it wants and moves like lightning getting there. Total pulp, but as far as pulp goes, you could do a lot worse.
