We begin #Disastruary with 1979’s UP FROM THE DEPTHS, directed by long-time Roger Corman collaborator Charles B. Griffith (GRAND THEFT AUTO, SMOKEY BITES THE DUST, THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS) which follows a Hawaiian resort under attack from a giant… shark? Monster? Fish? Well, anyway, something aquatic attacks them after being released by an underwater earthquake. We dive into the “disaster” of it all, most of which seems to have taken place behind the scenes, while also discussing renting porn, APOCALYPSE NOW, how hard it is to run a resort, whether anyone has ever drank a Pink Squirrel, and, most importantly, has anyone watched BULLWORTH?
