Visible crew/equipment: Near the end of the owner's speech near the start, there is a brief circling shot with a boom operator sitting on the railing behind him.
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.
Finnegan: Like a fine wine, I'm aging gracefully, thank you.
Mason: Like a fine wine my ass. You look more like a keg of beer to me.
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.
