One of the truly great films of the 1980s. I await with apprehension the remake due in 2013.
I wish I'd seen this film, which was written by John Sayles who wrote arthouse favourites Matewan, Secret of Roan Inish and uh, Piranha (1978)

I never saw this film at the time but I had read the book, which at age 12 or 13, I found rather disturbing.

This will always will be the best Superman movie for me. I saw it by myself aged 14 at Melbourne's stunning art deco Capitol cinema, and most likely followed it with a walk up the road to Space Age Books to salivate over the latest scifi stuff.

This was the Deep Impact of the 1970's, and not a bad one too although the special effects were a little shaky.

Two Jaws rip-offs on the one bill! Actually Seakiller (AKA Beyond The Reef) was not a monster shark movie at all, it was just marketed that way because movie distributors know we're all stupid.
