Big monster hungry crocodiles roaming in underwater caves. Black Water: Abyss (2020) could be described as some hybrid between The Descent (2005) and Lake Placid (1999) (minus the comedy side, of course). In the movie, a group of friends exploring a remote cave system in Northern Australia find themselves threatened by a pack of crocodiles.
Adventure-loving Eric and Jennifer convince their friends Yolanda and Viktor, to join tour guide, Cash exploring an unchartered cave system in the rainforests of Northern Australia. With a tropical storm approaching they abseil into the cave, knowing they’ll be safe underground. But when the cave starts to flood, tensions rise and the group find themselves disoriented and trapped. They discover the storm has brought in dangerous and hungry crocodiles. As danger mounts, long-kept secrets emerge and the friends turn on each other in a frantic fight for survival.
Black Water: Abyss (2020) is the follow up of Black Water (2007), another terrifying tale of survival in the mangrove swamps of Northern Australia. It has been directed by Andrew Traucki, one of the co-directors of the previous film, and also known for other survival killer animals movies like The Reef (2010) and The Jungle (2013), as well as the segment “G is for Gravity” in The ABCs of Death (2012). Ian John Ridley and Sarah Smith have been in charge of the screenplay.
