Dead in the Water (2018) Script

[Suspenseful music]

[wind whistling]

[breathing heavily]


[steam hissing]

[engine clanging]


[metal squeaking]

Hey, you need to tell your sister to slow the hell down!

The engine isn't gonna take this much longer!

You know Gwenn doesn't listen to me!

Yeah? Well, she sure as hell doesn't listen to us either.

Dana, it's no joke! She needs to slow down!

I'll let her know!

[ominous rumbling]

Gwenn, you need to ease off.

This goddamn engine isn't...

They're not getting away from us this time.


It's, uh... it's ready.

You only got one shot at this, okay?

So make it count.

You're sure this tracking device contraption of yours, it's... it's gonna grab on to their ship?

It should.

I think. Hey, we're gonna lose them in the fog if the two of you don't hurry up.


[gasps] Hey.

She's sick again.

Staying topside is the only thing that seems to help. [Inhales deeply]

Get her to the stern so she can see the horizon.

[Metal groaning]


[Turbines creaking]

No, no, no.

What's going on? Why are we stopping?

Just get her to the stern!

Come on.

[gun fires]

[faint clang]

[faint shouting]

[gunshot] [bullet pings]

Hit the deck!

[Sinister music]

[bullets pinging]

Are they shooting at us?

[Glass shattering] Get away from the window!

[Bullets pinging]

[both breathing heavily]

[alarm trilling]

She did it.

[Tense music]

We're tracking them.

We finally got the bastards.

Ten tons of illegal fish and a video of those assholes shooting at us.

That's prison for sure, right?

First we've got to catch up to them, stop them before they unload.


Any idea how we're gonna do that?

[Steam hissing]


How's it looking down there?

Thought we had a deal, Gwenn.

I agree to fix her. You agreed not to break her.

I thought we were here to do whatever it takes.

Takes an engine is what it takes, Gwenn.

You do know how a ship works, right?

Just tell me when... Need a hand here.

Do you know what the problem is?

We just make it look too damn easy.

Hell, yeah.

[breathing heavily]

I think it's over.

[Door creaking]

I need to sit down for a minute.

Getting shot at... not what I signed up for.

Tell me this doesn't happen all the time.

Don't ask me.

This is my first time out.

Are you guys all right?

We're not shot, if that's what you mean.

They're gonna pay for that, I promise!

Dana, is everything okay?


This is gonna be a long three months.


[whimpers] You okay?


I never should have gotten on this ship.

What was I thinking?

Aren't you, like, their fish expert or something?


Love fish.

Hate the water.

I know.

The irony of it all isn't lost on me.

I'm a lab rat, but my university makes me come out once every three years for my accreditation.

Must really love what you do.

Right now, not so much.

So... what brings you to the middle of the North Pacific?


I'm a med student.

Well, I was.

Um, actually... it's kind of a long story. Did you see that?

See what?


[Foreboding music]

[wind whistling]

[door clangs]

We're on it.

I know. I'm just trying to keep Gwenn out of your hair.

Hey, Gwenn, it's Dana.

We'll have an estimate on the engine in...

One hour.

Two hours.

Listen, I need everyone on the bridge.

It's important.

That's a hell of a storm.

Over 100 miles wide.

And growing.

And we're directly in its path.

Getting shot at, no engine... this just keeps getting better.

You know what happens if we hit that storm with no engine.

Well aware, Rusty.

What happens? Without the engine, we can't turn into the waves.

If we can't turn into the waves...

We capsize.

How long do we have?

At its current rate, I'd say just under three hours.

[Door clicks open]

There's... there's something in the water.

Was it a boat you saw?

It looked like... like someone was trying to hold on to something in the water.

It was hard to make out.

But you're sure you saw someone.

It was nearly dark, but... [sighs]

I don't... Michelle?

Did you see anything out there?


I'm not sure. Look, I'm sorry, but I think we're wasting our time here.

It's not like we don't have enough to deal with as it is.

I'm with Rusty.

It's not like there was a distress call or anything, right?

I mean, where would they have come from?

What about the Chinese trawler?

Someone could have fallen overboard in the chaos.

And they don't circle back to get them?

Look, I know I saw something, all right?

If it is a person, we can't just leave them out there.

You're right. She's right.

So how's this? Uh, me, Erika, and Michelle, we take the lifeboat out; We have a look.

Everyone else focuses on getting the engine fixed.

We come back the instant you're up and running whether we find something or not.

If you go out in this, you're never gonna find your way back.

Keep the searchlight on.

Make sure it's always in sight.

We have to know.



[motor puttering]

Is anyone out there?

[Suspenseful music]


Can anybody hear me?


[Steam hissing]

[steam hissing]

Here's the hose.

Kat, the hose.

What if this doesn't work? It will work.

Yeah, but what if it doesn't?

Kat, I need you to focus.

There's no engine we can't fix, am I right?

Am I right?

You're right.


Now, let's get this done.


[Motor puttering]


Is there anyone out there?


Can anybody hear me?

Thought you hated the water.

Yeah, don't remind me.


Can anyone hear me?

[Faint rumbling]

Hey, do you hear that?

They got the engine going.

So we should be heading back, right?

Like you said. We haven't been looking for that long.

I'm sure we can spare a few more minutes.


No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Just stay calm. I'm sure they'll have it powered up any...


[sinister music]

[gasps] Michelle!


Michelle? Michelle!



See if you can find a bigger clamp.

Rusty? What the hell happened?

You happened, Gwenn. Remember?

We're just trying to fix it with what little we've got, okay?

What about the generator? Its pump to the main fuel line is shot.

We told Gwenn already.

Look, without that searchlight, Dana's not gonna have a hope in hell of finding her way back here. We hear you, but one problem at a time, all right?

Oh, found one. Here.

[Tense music]

Michelle? Michelle!

Where is she? Michelle?


[muffled] Michelle!

[Panting] Where are you?


Michelle! [gasps]

Come on! Grab hold! Take my hand!

[Gasping] Come on!

Pull! [gasping]

[grunting] Pull!


[all panting]

[coughing, gasping] Oh, my God!

I don't think... [gasping, coughing]

I'm a big fan of the water either.


[engine roaring]

The power's back on.

They got the engine going.

[Sinister music]


Is he alive?

[Gasping] This guy sure as hell didn't fall off a fishing trawler.

[All panting]

I'm surprised he's still alive, considering how cold that water is. You got that right.

Okay, we're gonna need your help.


[tense music]



Come on, girl.

You can do it.

[engines revving]

[muffled crash] [waves splashing]

[steam hissing]

[metal clanging]

[steam hissing]


Um, I need the defib paddles.


It's in the cabinet, over there.

Can someone get a knife or scissors?

How long could someone survive in water that cold?


15 minutes.

Maybe 30, tops.

S-so this guy should be dead.

Yeah, he's going to be if you guys don't hurry.


[all scream]

Sir, you need to sit back.

Let go! Please... please let go.

Sir, you... you need to let her go so we can help you, okay? We're just trying to help!

Calm down, sir! No one is trying to hurt you, okay? [hollers]

[all screaming]

[dramatic music]




[whimpering] Oh, God.

[All panting]

Are you okay? Fine.

[Groans] I'm fine.

Help Rusty!


Let me take that. I'm getting the rifle, and then I'm gonna go find him. A-alone?

We'll all go.

We'll take this deck if you want to look topside.


Here, take this. There are bigger knives in the mess hall! Rusty?

[Tense music]

What just happened here?

I don't know.

[waves crashing]

[chain squeaking]

[door creaks]

[clears throat]

[whispering] Dana, wait up.

[Object clatters]

[gasps, grunts]


No, no, no.

No, my knife. No.

[Foreboding music]

Come on.


[metallic clatter]

[whispering] Dana?

Dana, where'd you go?

[chain squeaking]

Dana, please.



[Object clatters]

[wind whistling]


You need to stay close, okay? O-okay.

[Suspenseful music]


Hey, stop!


Gwenn! Wait!


Hey, asshole.

[Grunts] [screams]



[panting, gagging]

[dark music]

[knife clatters]

Did... did you...

What choice did I have, right?

[microphone feedback whines over speakers]

We need... we need some help on the bridge!



He stabbed Gwenn!

I-I'm gonna get the first-aid kit.

It's under the sink, over there.

[Tense music]

[wind whistling]

That psycho attacked her!

We need to do something!

We don't need to worry about him any more.


She, um...

She killed him.


Did to him what he was gonna do to us.

[wind whistling]

What, we should have waited until he killed one of us first?

This is going to hurt.


You should set the autopilot.

[computer beeps]

[groans] We need to call the Coast Guard. Yeah, like hell we do.

There is a dead man on your ship.

What are you gonna do, just throw him overboard and pretend none of this happened?

Look, I did what had to be done.

Will the both of you just stop?


Let's get clear of this storm, and then we can decide what's best to do.

A few hours, it's not gonna make a difference.

Now, we need to get that body inside before we hit any weather.

You guys?

What... what is it?

He... he's, uh...


He's gone.

I thought you said...

Well, he sure as hell looked dead to me.

Kill me.

[Sinister music]


When he grabbed me earlier in the sick bay...

I-I think he said, "Kill me.

"Kill yourselves.

End this."

[power whirs down]

[thunder rumbling]

[foreboding music]

I thought the engine was fixed.

It was fixed.

That man's still out there somewhere.

Lock those doors.

[Alarm trilling] Generator's kicked on.

[Suspenseful music]

Turn that off.

[alarm stops]

Okay, everyone just... take a breath. Take a breath?

Did you not hear what he said to her?

He was probably in shock.


Who knows what being in the water that long did to him?

Well, it sure as hell didn't kill him like it should have, right?


Be careful with that, Kat.

No, he shouldn't have survived that.

What about the 12-inch blade Rusty buried in his stomach?

Should he have been able to survive that?

He crawled off somewhere, okay?

He crawled off and died.

No one can survive an injury like that.

That's my point, Rusty.

He should not have survived in the first place.

She's right.

How do you explain that?

Look, he's either dead, or he's not, but none of that matters if we don't get the damn engine fixed.

That storm is gonna be on us within the hour.

Without the engine, we all know what that means.

Even if we call for help, no one would ever get to us in time.

Looks like it's up to you and me.

Like that's something new.

Sparks and I will come give you a hand.

We will?

[wind whistling]

[tense music]

[door clangs, creaks]


You guys go ahead.

I'm right behind you. Where are you going?

I need to find out where our friend went.

Shouldn't we all stick together?

We'll work a lot faster if we're not constantly looking over our shoulder.

I won't be long. Dana, wait.

If he's not dead... you'll finish him, right?

Get the engine fixed.


[breathing shakily]

[water splashing]

[wind whistling]

[hatch creaking]

Genny's gonna need gas.

[Power whirs down]

God damn it. [sighs]

Perfect. Just perfect.

[door creaks]

What the hell is going on down there?

Generator's out of gas. We're on it.

[breathing shakily]

I'll get the gas.

I need a little light over here.

All right.

[Metal creaking]

[faint metallic bang] [gasps]

We're gonna get through this, right?


You know why?

'Cause we're just too damn good.

Damn right we are.

[Gas splashing]

[faint metallic clang, crash]




This is no time for jokes.

[Foreboding music]

[generator whirring]

What the hell happened?

Why would someone do this?

We'll never get this fixed in time.

We'll never get this fixed in time.

What are we gonna do?

[Loud bang]

He's here!

He's... he's in here somewhere.


Oh, God. [breathing heavily]

What happened here?

We're in serious trouble.

[Tense music]

Where's Sparks?

I don't know.

She was just here.


[door creaking]


Are you in here?

[door creaking]


[screams] What is it?

[Groans] Oh, God.


What happened?

[Stammers] I don't know.

She's hurt.

[Growls] [yelps]

Let her go!

[Screaming] Get him off!

[All shouting]

[screaming] [hollers]

[body thuds]

[all breathing heavily]

[tense music]

I think he's dead.

[Gunshot] [all scream]

I think so too.

[Wind whistling]

[foreboding music]

From here on in, I don't think anyone should be touching him. What do you mean, we shouldn't be touching him?

We've all touched him.

See this?

Was that there before?

Um... we never had a chance to look that closely.

Dana, she just said not to touch him.

Well, that's not good.


There's nothing we can do about this now.

We need to focus on getting the engine fixed.

Kat, what the hell are you doing?

I'm getting off the ship!

You should all do the same! Don't be stupid, Kat!

Go the other way! Cut her off!

[Tense music]

[sinister music]

[thunder rumbling]

[foreboding music]

[door creaks]


[waves crashing]

Oh, God. Kat.

You need to stop, okay?

You're not thinking this through.

I'm getting off this ship, Rusty, with or without you.

And go where?

She's right, Kat.

Closest land is over 600 miles away.

You'd run out of gas long before then.

I guess I'll have to take my chances.

You really think you're gonna make it out there in this?

If you care so much, help me with the bigger boat.

In either boat, you're gonna end up in the water.

Then you're done for.

That's a guarantee.

If we stay on this ship, we're all done for.

Can't you all see that?

I mean, who knows what that guy had?

For all we know... we have it now too.

Kat... the only hope in hell we have of surviving this is if we get that engine going again.

I'll never be able to do it without you.

You don't really think that mess down there can be fixed, right?

It can.

If you help me, it can.

[Wind blowing]

Just stay back, all right?

Going out there is a death sentence.

But if that's what you want... and you want to leave us out here to fend for ourselves, then we're not gonna stop you.

[Waves crashing]


[thunder rumbling]

I just... I don't want to die, okay?

Not out here.

Not like this.

Then I suggest we all get busy.

That is, if we're done with the theatrics.


You head up to the radio room.

We're gonna send that mayday, okay?

I'll try and steer us into the waves.

Maybe buy us some time. I'll come help you.

Okay. You guys go with Rusty.

She's gonna need all the hands she can get.

I'm... I'm sorry.

I can't go back in there.

Not until that body's gone.

Well, does anyone have a problem now with throwing him overboard? Actually, that's the last thing we should be doing.

Well, I've had just about enough of your holier-than-thou, self-righteous bullshit.

He was sick, right?

And we've all come in contact with him.

If he is contagious, we need to know with what before we all end up like him.

Is that something you can do?

Michelle can do an autopsy.

I'll assist her.

Wait, what?

I'm not qualified to do that.

I barely got through half of med school.

I can't.

You're gonna be okay to do this, right?



You don't understand. Uh...

I-I really don't do well in... in stressful situations.

That's why I-I washed out of med school.

We're gonna take it slow.

One step at a time.


One step at a time.

Pull away his shirt.

I'm gonna collect some data, okay?


[Suspenseful music]


Mayday, mayday, mayday.

This is the "Amphitrite" requesting immediate assistance.

We're broken down in the path of a Category 3 storm at 2-5 degrees

3-2.9 minutes north, 1-4-2 degrees 4-4.9 minutes east.

Again, we are requesting immediate assistance.

[Static crackling]

I'm telling you, there's no one out there.

No one was stupid enough to hang around in the path of this storm. Just keep trying, okay?

[Wind howling] [sighs]

[foreboding music]

Mayday, mayday.

This is the "Amphitrite" requesting immediate assistance.

Does anyone copy?

Mayday, mayday.

This is the "Amphitrite" requesting immediate assistance.

[Sighs] You doing okay?

I think so.

The ballasts are full now, so it should stabilize us.

At least for a while.

[Metal groaning]

No, I mean...

I mean, are you doing okay? Mayday, mayday.

This is the "Amphitrite" requesting immediate assistance.

We're broken down in the path of a Category 3 storm. [sniffles]

You mean, uh... am I doing okay with the fact that... if it wasn't for me, we wouldn't be in this mess?

Am I doing okay with being the one responsible for possibly getting us all killed?

No one is blaming you.

I'm blaming me.

This is my ship.

It's my responsibility, and, uh...

[metal groaning]

I pushed...

I pushed too hard this time.

No one could have known what was gonna happen when we let that man on board.

We did what was right.

[Melancholy music]

Dad would have done the same thing.

When did, uh, my little sister get so grown up?

I had to grow up.

I had to look after you.

Dana, this is Michelle.

We got something down here you guys might want to have a look at.

Go. I've got this.

[Clears throat]

I'll be right there.

[Tense music]

Mayday, mayday.

This is the "Amphitrite" requesting immediate assistance.

We're broken down in the path of a Category 3 storm.

Does anyone copy?

[metal clanking]

You really think that's necessary?

I've had enough surprises for one day, thank you.

Anybody tries to open one of these doors, I want to know about it.

Do you think you're ready to get to work now?

[Scoffs] You think you've really got a way to fix that damn thing?

[ship creaking]

[foreboding music]

You doing okay?

I think so.

[Ship creaking]


Uh... uh, it's at the... at the bottom of the door.

We found it in his pants pocket.

I doubt this will power on, but... maybe Sparks can get something off the SIM card.

The other one is just Sparks' video camera.

We found it on the floor in here.

Maybe there's something of use on it.

Uh, I-I'd wear gloves if you're gonna be handling either one of them, just to be safe.

Did you guys find anything yet?

[Ship groans]



I should get back.

Let us know as soon as you find something, okay?


How many more do you need for the biopsy?

This should do it.

Can you reach it? I think so.

[Ship groans]

Rusty, you hear that?

It's just the rudder shaft sending vibrations through the hull.

[Suspenseful music]

[eerie groaning]

Got it. [grunts]

[valve squeaking]

[eerie, wheezing cry]

Rusty, you there?


[foreboding music]

Rusty, you still in here?



Mayday, mayday.

This is the "Amphitrite" requesting immediate assistance.

Is there anyone out there?

[Wind howling] [waves crashing]


Mayday, mayday.

[Waves crashing]

The SAT phone was in his pocket.

You think we can get anything off the SIM card?

I-if it's not too damaged, yeah.

[Breathing heavily] Hey, give me a hand here.

[Dramatic music]

Michelle said to put gloves on before touching it.

[hoarsely] Copy that.

Each cluster is proportionally the same, but each new cluster is slightly larger than the previous.

An infection or disease wouldn't spread like that.

No, it wouldn't.

[Suspenseful music]

What do you think it is?

I was hoping you'd be able to tell me.

Face your fears, right?


[breathing heavily] You've got this.

[Exhales sharply]


[sniffling, breathing heavily]

[wind howling]


Let's get this over with.

[foreboding music]

Everything except the heart is atrophied.

That's not possible.

Don't stop now.

[Breathing heavily]

Almost there.

[bones snapping]

Just breathe, okay? [grunting]

[bones snapping]




[bones snapping]

Come on!

[Grunting] There.

[bones cracking]


[sinister music]

What is that?

[Sinister musical sting]

[both gasp]


I can't breathe. Michelle, you need to leave your mask on! I can't breathe.

[Hyperventilating] Michelle!

Leave your mask on! No!

No! Leave it on, Michelle!


Oh, God, get it off!

Michelle, go! [screams]

[both panting]

[flesh squelching]

What the hell is that?

[steam hissing]

Rusty, can you guys top off the generator?

Looks like she's almost out.

[Generator whirring]



Do you copy?

[Foreboding music]

Oh, son of a bitch.

[Breathing heavily]

[flashlight clicks]

[breathing shakily]

[door clatters open]

[wrenches clinking]

[ship creaking]

[metal groaning]



You guys in here?

[Metal creaking, groaning]



[Liquid sloshes]

[wind whistling]

[generator whirring]



[Foreboding music]

Hey, Gwenn?

It's Dana.

Uh, Rusty and Kat aren't down here.

Are... are they on the bridge?

[Static crackling]

Gwenn, are you there?

[Wind whistling]

Don't move.

[Gun cocking]

I said don't move.

Gwenn, you don't need to do this.

She should have said something.

Gwenn, please.

[Door clicks open]

What the hell is going on?

She's got the spots on her arm and she didn't bother to tell anyone.

She's been walking around this whole time and hasn't said a thing.

[Tense music]

Is that true?

I... [inhales shakily]

Go ahead.

Show her.

I said show her. All right.

All right. [breathing shakily]

I feel fine. You have got a damn disease.

You are not fine.

Everyone just stop, all right?

Just stop. Get the hell out of the way, Erika. It's not a disease.

[Ship groans]

[both groan]

It's not a disease.

I think...

I think it's a bite mark.

A bite mark?

From what? I don't know.

But something was feeding on that man's body, and as it grew, its bite marks got larger.

The three spots?

It got larger.

It must have tried moving on to Sparks as a new food source, but Dana scared it off in the engine room before it could finish attaching or bond itself.

This... is bullshit.

That man was sick, plain and simple.

Now Sparks has probably infected the rest of us.

We saw it, all right?

We saw it inside the man when we cut him open.

It looked like... like it was trying to keep him alive.

[Muffled crash]

[boat groaning]

[waves crashing]

[metal creaking]

I think that's how he survived in the water.

It was keeping him alive long enough to find another food source.

You mean us?

At the rate it's growing, it would need a warm-blooded food source.

Not the easiest thing to find in the middle of the ocean.

Dana... are you believing any of this?

The... the thing you saw... you can show us, right?

It's dead.

It's gone. Of course it is.

It... it crawled out of the man's mouth, and then it just...

I-I don't know, it... it just melted.

So whatever it was, it's dead now, right?

So there's nothing to worry about.

[Breathing heavily] Right?

What was inside that man's body...

It was too small to have made the bite marks.

[door crashes]

[all breathing heavily] Kat and Rusty, they weren't in the engine room.

Rusty? Kat?

Is that you?

[Knocking against door]

[sinister music]

Jesus. [whimpers]

[all breathing heavily]

Get... it... off.


[creature squelching]

We... we have to get it off of her!

Don't touch it! [shouts]

[both gasp, yelp]

Don't let it get away!

[Creature clanging in pipe]

[thunder crashing]

[suspenseful music]

[foreboding music]

We can seal it with this.

[ship groaning]

[tape crackling]


How's she doing?

She's breathing.

But I have no idea what kind of internal damage it may have done. What if it put one of those things inside of her... like you found on that man?

I don't know.

Could be what's keeping her alive.

I've got something.


[wind howling] [ship creaking]

Okay, um... the last call he made was four days ago.

The coordinates were put in here.

That's right in the middle of the Mariana Trench.

What the hell was he doing there?

The Mariana Trench?

The world's deepest part of the ocean.

36,000 feet down.

You could sink Mount Everest in there and the peak would still be a good mile underwater.

Uh, I-I recovered fragments of a video that he tried to upload from his phone.

Are... are those core samples?

They can't be.

The trench is a protected monument.

Wait, s-stop there.

Go back a little.


Tamor Oil and Gas.

Son of a bitch.

What is it?

They're looking for oil.

But that's illegal.

Some genius in the U.S. government has been talking about allowing drilling in the trench.

Looks like these guys were secretly trying to get a jump-start on the competition.

Okay, that still doesn't explain what happened to that man. Or how he ended up in the ocean 200 miles from there.

No one's ever dug that deep.

And there sure as hell isn't any warm-blooded food source anywhere near that depth it could have fed on.

They're messing with the unknown down there.

Who knows what kind of microbe they brought up?

Something desperate to live.

That's for sure.

[Muffled crash]

[all groan]

[ship groaning]

[all groaning, breathing heavily]

Uh, I downloaded this off my camera.

[Tense music]

Watch the side of his neck.

[amazed exclamation]

Whatever it is, it's... it's a lot bigger now.

If we see that thing again, we need to stay away from the smaller tentacles.

I think it uses them like a jellyfish to render its victim unconscious.

That's probably why you don't remember being attacked.

That's a nice thought.

[All yelp]

[ship groaning]

[wind whistling]


This is useless without the engine.

The ocean's just throwing us around now.


We need to find Kat.

Find out how close they were to getting the engine going.

We can't just ride out the storm in here?

If we can't turn the bow into the waves, we're... we're eventually gonna capsize.

But there's a chance we won't, right?

A chance we'll make it through.

All it will take is one rogue wave, and that wave will come.

But for all we know, Kat could be dead already.

Food for that... thing out there. We all better hope that Kat is alive, because... without Rusty, she's our only shot.

Look, you all do what you want, but I'm not going, all right?

I'll... I'll stay here and look after Rusty.

[All scream]

[waves crashing]

[metal clanging]

There's nothing more you can do for Rusty.

We need you with us... in case Kat is injured.

I'm sorry.

I'm not... I'm just not going.

All right?

If we do nothing, we're all dead for sure.

I'll go.

We don't have much of a choice here.

We got to face our fears, right?

[dramatic music]

[wind whistling]

[thunder crashing]

[rain pattering] [wind whistling]

The flares are in the lifeboat locker.

Come on.

[Wind whistling]

[thunder rumbling]

Um, we should probably get some supplies from the sick bay, right?

Just in case.

[Thunder rumbling]

[suspenseful music]

You know how to use one of these?

Yeah. Okay.


It's locked.

[loud bang] [both scream]

Is everything all right? All good!

[Thunder rumbling]

[ship creaking]

[breathing heavily]


[Hollow clanging]


[Ship groaning, creaking]


Come on. I'm sorry.

I-I just can't.

[Whimpering] Michelle!

[Metallic bang]

What's going on?

You guys go! I'll meet you at sick bay!

What are you doing? I'm getting Michelle!

Go! Dana!

[Thunder rumbling]


[breathing heavily]


[Yelps] Come on, Michelle!

[sinister music]



Get it off! [yelps]

[both screaming]

Get it off me! No!

[Screaming continues]

Michelle! [screaming]

Get it off! Michelle!

Michelle! [shrieking]

[screams] Michelle!

[Flesh squelches]

[tense music]

[coughing, gasping]

Hell of a way to go.

I got the morphine. Good.

We need to go! We need to get to the engine room now! Dana?

[Foreboding music]

We need to find Kat.

We need to get to the engine room... now!

Where... where's Michelle?


She... she's dead.


How? I don't...

[ship groans]

[all shouting]

[metal creaking]

[all breathing heavily]

Move! What are you doing?

Move! [screams]




[sinister music]


Go! Get out of here! Go!



[gun clicking]



[all panting]

[ship groaning]


[hollers] The hinges are rusted!

I'll give you a hand.

I know I left this open.

[Gasps] It's jammed or something.

Just pull! [both straining]

The engine room door won't open!

We'll be right there. [straining]

[all grunting]

[both panting]

We're in! We're in!


No! You live through this, you hear me? No!

No! No!

[Screaming] Dana!

Dana, you are not dying because of me.

Now go!

[Gagging] No!

No! No! No!

[Sobbing] Dana, Dana, Dana.

No, we can't just leave her!


Get away from the door... now.

It was you.

You... you were holding down the latches.

You were trying to keep us out.

Get away from the door... now.

You are not letting that thing back in here.

Do you hear me?

[Tense music]

[metallic clang]

[waves crashing]

[ship groaning]


Better than being a dead hero.

[Ship groans]

[grunts] [screams]

[grunts] Dana!

Stop it! [screaming]

Stop, Kat. Stop!

[Grunts] Stop it!

Stop it!

Stop, all right?


[Screaming] [grunts]


Get off her, Dana!

[Whimpering] Stop it, you guys!

Stop! Just stop!

All right, stop! [gasping, panting]

It's bad enough we need to worry about that thing out there.

Now we need to worry about each other?

[All panting] Why?

Why? Why would you do that?

Don't you dare judge me.

[gasping, panting]

You have no idea what I've lived through down here just to get this thing fixed.

I wasn't about to let it all be for nothing.

You've been working on this the entire time?

Rusty and I just... just started working on it when I heard her scream.

I went looking for her.

Next thing I know, I'm waking up behind the gearbox.

Rusty, she... she's next to me.

That thing is already on her.

Feeding on her or something.

When you came in to... to check the generator...

I wanted to say something, you know?

Cry out for help.

But I was so worried that...

[exhales heavily] That thing would turn on me.

Rusty... she managed to get back on her feet, if you can believe it.

[Inhales deeply] She followed you right out of here.



She was always stronger than me.

So you waited for her to leave and... you locked yourself in?

You're damn right I did.

And any one of you would have done exactly the same thing.

You said the engine is fixed.

Close. [sighs]

I just need to reroute the fuel line.

That's great.

We're gonna get out of here.

We're gonna get through this.

There's a catch.

It'll need to be started from the bridge.

The electrical is shot to hell down here.

I had to bypass it.

How long do you need?

With an extra set of hands, 15, 20 minutes, tops.

I'll do it.

I'll start it from the bridge.

But first... what do you think is gonna kill that thing?


It might do the trick.

[Dramatic music]


Where is it? It's in the cabinet with the wrenches. I've got some wire.

[Suspenseful music]


All right.

This'll work?

Oh, it'll work.

Whether it'll kill that thing is a different question.

You won't be able to fire it, so you'll need to get close enough to stab it.

Don't turn it on till right before you need it, or you'll drain the unit.

[Sighs] And obviously, once it's on...


[electricity zapping]

You'll want to make sure you don't touch the spear.


Ten minutes. We'll be ready.

Don't you worry about us.

You guys just get to the bridge.

[suspenseful music]

[ship creaking]

[both breathing shakily]

[sinister music]


Dana, wait! Gwenn!

Gwenn! Wait!

[Waves crashing]

[ship creaking]

[yelps] Gwenn!


Dana, wait!



Wait up! [yelps]


She's heading for the bridge!

Come on!

[Both yelp]

[suspenseful music]

Dana! [coughing]

Are you all right? [gasping]

I'm fine.


She's alive! She's headed to the bridge!


[door creaking]

[yelps] [panting]

[thunder rumbling]

[both panting]


Oof! Gwenn?


[Ship groans, creaks]


[eerie creaking]

Gwenn, are you in here?



[Waves crashing]

[gasps softly] Hang in there.


[Hollering indistinctly]


We need to get the engine started.

Make sure the bow thrusters are engaged.



[buttons clicking]


Good to go.

Come on, Kat.

Come on.


Call the engine room and find out what the hell is going on! [whimpers]

[ship creaking]

[grunts, yelps]

[waves crashing]




Come on.

Start, you son of a bitch!


[engines humming]

[triumphant music]


Yes! Yes!

We did it!

We did it, Sparks!

[Engines powering up]

I'll be right there.

I'm just gonna... set the autopilot.

I'm coming, okay?

We're going home.


[sinister music]

[coughing, gasping]

Let me... [choking]


Gwenn, no.

[weeping] It... must... die.




No! [wheezing]





[electricity crackling]



She did... did it.

She saved us.


What did you do?

Sparks! Help, Dana!

Help me! Sparks!

Get it off! Sparks!

Help me! [gasping]

[screams] Get it off!

[Sobbing] [yelps]


[creature splatters]

[both gasping]

[tense music]

What are you doing? Killing this son of a bitch once and for all. No!

Just let the storm take it! It's gonna die here and now! We don't even know if it's gonna work! [sobbing]




[hollers] [screaming]


No, no! Sparks!

No! Sparks! [screaming]


Get out of here!

No! [screaming]

No! [screams]



[sinister music]

[gasps, whimpers]

Is this it?

It'll do.

[Ship creaking]

[hatch clanks]


Is that you?

[Suspenseful music]

[breathing heavily]

Where is Sparks?

Gwenn too.

I'm so sorry.

Were you able to set the autopilot?

Yeah, I...

I set it for Guam.

[laughs] But, um... we can't let that happen.

We can't let what happen?

[Ship creaks]


There's no killing that thing out there.

That man tried to destroy the engine.

He... he knew what he was doing.

He was trying to... stop that thing from spreading.

He was trying to stop... stop it from getting to anyone else.

You're not suggesting that we...

That we let the ship sink.

With that thing and us on it.

That's crazy.

That's suicide.

Tell her.

Tell her it's crazy.

You've seen what that thing is capable of.

Do we really want to be the ones responsible for unleashing that onto the rest of the world?

Our friends?

Our families?

Who says it's not gonna find something else to feed on out there?

Whales, seals.

They're warm-blooded, right?

We would have died for nothing. There's a greater chance it'll starve and die if it goes down with us.

[Ship creaking]

Listen, all I know is, I'm going home.

I have a life, plans, and I'm sure as hell not dying out here in the middle of the goddamn ocean.

Just because you have no one left does not mean you can sacrifice the rest of us.

I'm sorry, Kat.

I really am, but we have to do this.

[Waves crashing]

[all groan]

[ship creaking]

No! Wait, no!

Kat. Let it go!

[All shouting]

Stop it! I'm not dying here!

Stop it! [all yelp]


[screams] Kat!

Don't make me do this. [yelps]

[both struggling]

[both shouting, grunting]

[both cry out]

[grunts] [yelps]

[choking, gasping]

There has to be another option.

[Screams] Maybe there's a way to... to kill it you haven't thought of yet.


We can't take the chance!

[Both grunting]

[groans] [coughs]


[both breathing heavily]


[Both straining]

[waves crashing]

[screams] [grunts]

[ship groaning]

[thunder rumbling]

[triumphant music]

I'm sorry.

[weeping, gasping]

[suspenseful music]

[weeping softly]


[sinister music]


Run. No!




[metal clanging]

You should have finished what you started, asshole!

[creature chittering]


[generator sputtering]

[thunder crashing]

[wind whistling]

[tense music]

[ship groans]

[dramatic music]

[suspenseful music]

[men speaking foreign language]

[men gasp]

[coughing, gasping]

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you, thank you.


[foreboding music]
