Exclusive clip from the 47 Meters Down Blu-ray and Digital HD release
Director Johannes (The Other Side of the Door) Roberts’ 47 Meters Down is a crackerjack slab of sharksploitation survivalist horror that basically kicked my ass. The film stars Mandy Moore and Claire Holt as sisters on vacation in beautiful Mexico. Moore is getting over a bad breakup that has hit her hard and, after partying with a pair of handsome young adventurers, the women decide to take them up on their offer to go shark diving. Moore has trepidations, Holt is gung ho and the latter lady wins and off they go in salty captain Matthew Modine’s boat. Of course it’s a huge mistake and of course bad things are bound to happen because this is a horror movie about killer sharks, after all…
Once out in the brine, the lads convince the sisters to suit up and jump inside the boat’s ramshackle shark cage, where they’ll be able to get up close and personal with a monstrous Great White that is circling them. Although terrified, the women put their faith in Modine’s confident sailor and literally dive right in. But when they’ve had enough and ask the men to haul them back to the surface, the line snaps and the cage goes crashing to the bottom of the bloody ocean, the heavy iron pulley slamming on top of the cage just to make sure the pair are weighted down proper.
As the girls struggle to conserve air and stay calm, that damned shark comes to call. And it’s super hungry.
The film enjoyed a modest theatrical run a few months back, after being re-aligned for theaters instead of its planned direct-to-video bow last year under the title In The Deep. Now, you too can have your heart-stopped by this shocker when 47 Meters Down hits Digital HD on September 12 and Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD and On Demand September 26 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
In honor of the release, we were given an exclusive peak at one of the special features, wherein the cast riffs on the making of the movie. Have a look below and do whatever it takes to see this film as soon as possible. It’s that good…
