Cocaine-addled sharks hunting down drug dealers. If that doesn’t float your boat, nothing will as Collider is thrilled to be exclusively revealing the first trailer for the upcoming visceral action thriller set on the high seas, Deep Fear, which is set to bring not just scares and screams but a lovely slice of the absurd too, in a film destined to become a cult classic.
Deep Fear is an intense survival thriller set in the Caribbean. The story revolves around Naomi (Mãdãlina Ghenea), an experienced yachtswoman traveling to Grenada to meet her boyfriend, Jackson (Ed Westwick). What was supposed to be a peaceful three-day solo voyage on her yacht, The Serenity, takes a dark turn when a storm forces her off course. While navigating around an uninhabited island surrounded by dangerous reefs, she comes to the rescue of a sinking vessel, only to discover that the survivors are actually ruthless drug traffickers: Jose (Stany Coppet), Maria (Macarena Gomez), and Tomas (John-Paul Pace).
These criminals coerce Naomi into diving down to the sunken ship’s hull to retrieve 350 kilos of cocaine. However, their plan goes awry when she finds herself surrounded by a swarm of great white sharks attracted by the dead bodies in the wreck. In a gripping and deadly underwater battle, Naomi must rely on her intelligence, skills, and determination to survive both the drug traffickers and one of nature’s most formidable predators, the great white shark.
