30 hand picked films. A new one every day
Set on the Cornish coast in 1903, the film features a group of people discovering an underwater society of smugglers who never age, living in a lost underwater city along with their gill-man slaves.
The first 30 minutes or so are cute adventure yarn, then there is a lot of talking in caves. The underwater sequences in the last part are really painful to watch.
