War Gods Of The Deep Review

Musta been running out of Edgar Allen Poe material to adapt into screenplays... and War Gods of the Deep stands as probably the least amusing film to come from his collected works.The story is something or other about an underwater city populated by smugglers that never age (huh?) and the humans who get trapped there, spending most of the film asking their fellow prisoners if they remember the way in.

Mom (Glynis Johns) is no better, a dingbat who prefers supporting social causes to spending time with her kids. Funny how little things have changed, huh?
