Blood Tide (1982) from Tuna

Blood Tide (1982) was a request from someone who wanted caps of Lydia Cornell (Too Close for Comfort). She has near exposure in several scenes, including a between the legs shot where her shorts don't cover much. The films also had breasts from Irini Tripkou, good see-through from Deborah  Sheldon, and Teases from Mary Louise Weller. 
The film is a low budget action/horror. Weller and her boyfriend travel to a Greek island to find his sister (Deborah Shelton). They discover that she is buddies with James Earl Jones, who is doing illegal diving looking for historical artifacts. Shelton has made friends in a convent, and is in the process of discovering  the same ancient horror as Jones. Jones unleashes the monster.

I agree with Maltin, who comments that the Greek scenery is lovely, but the plot was a waste of a good cast.. The DVD is made from a horrible master, and is way oversaturated and way too bright.  

The Critics Vote

  • Maltin 1.5/5

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 5.8, based on an insignificant number of votes 
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a D+.
