Deep Rising

Factual error: The machine guns supposedly have a "1,000 round capacity", but the size of the clips used in the guns are obviously nowhere big enough to hold 1,000 rounds.

Suggested correction: The bullets being fired are .223 rounds, easily allowing for a 1000 round magazine.

Continuity mistake: When the owner of the ship is screaming, "This equipment is state of the art. Top of the line," he goes from facing the Captain behind him to facing forward, between cuts.

Trivia: Footage of the party scene from the ship has since been re-used as stock footage in a number of low-budget films. Director Stephen Sommers has stated that he's not sure exactly how that works legally, but that he suspects the footage was licensed out by the studio in order to help recoup the budget, as "Deep Rising" didn't do well on initial release.

Question: There is a scene where Canton says he believes the creatures were a strange offshoot of the ARCHAEA OTTOIA family. He then describes how big they get based on how deep down they are as well as what they do to their victims. Question is does the Archaea Ottoia really exist? If so is anything Canton said about it true? I tried looking for this creature in the search engine but with no luck.
