Movie week, day 3: Below

[ 3/5 | IMDB | Rotten Tomatoes ]

American submarine on the run from German battleships in WWII picks up British survivors of a destroyed hospital ship. After that, bad luck follows the submarine as accusations and hallucinations afflict the crew and guests. Around 10 minutes in, I realized that I had already seen part of this movie years ago but forgotten. Oops. It was long enough ago to make me forget the ending until we got there, so it was still a new-ish experience. Good suspense in a constrained physical space that reminded me, maybe unfairly, of Pitch Black, also directed and written by David Twohy. Second of three writers was Darren Aronofsky.
