In the sequel to the indie horror hit “Black Water,” a group of cavers confront extremely hungry crocodiles. At FILMSTARTS there is the German trailer for “Black Water: Abyss” exclusively first:
Like the indie hits “Open Water” or “47 Meters Down”, 2007’s “Black Water” is a very minimalist animal horror film that is precisely what makes it so incredibly effective – especially the story of a young woman who finds herself in the swampy areas saves Northern Australia from a rampaging saltwater crocodile climbing a tree out of the water is based on a true story…
The sequel “Black Water: Abyss” now follows a very similar path with its cave setting as the horror sequel “47 Meters Down: Uncaged”, which has also moved the fight against the sharks to an underwater vault. By the way, the similarity is not surprising: “Black Water: Abyss” and “47 Meters Down: Uncaged” come from the same producers.

This is what Black Water: Abyss is about
Instead of one, this time there are four main characters who mess with gluttonous crocodiles in northern Australia: The couple Eric (Luke Mitchell, “Blindspot”) and Jennifer (Jessica McNamee, with shark experience from “Meg”) want to be there with their friends Yolanda (Amali Golden, “Love And Monsters”) and Viktor (Benjamin Hoetjes) explore a previously unexplored cave system. But then a tropical storm approaches, so the adventurers flee down into the cave to escape the hurricane. But they made a huge miscalculation:
Not only does the cave slowly fill with water, which is why escape is impossible and air is gradually becoming scarce. The storm has also brought a pack of ravenous crocodiles, which are now hunting the snack quartet in the underground cave system. A brutal fight for survival begins for the four friends – and then long-kept secrets reappear, which complicate the already tricky situation even further…
Black Water: Abyss, again directing the camera from original director Andrew Traucki (“The Reef”), will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 11, 2020.
