The Creature Below (2016) Movie Script

- Good morning Dr. Fletcher.
My name is Dr. olive crown
and you need my help.
I am a marine
biologist and ecologist
specializing in
oceanic trenches.
I am the only
non-military personnel
to advise on the development
of the 80ds-200 exosuit.
Working exclusively
with the us Navy
diving off the coast
of Southern California.
I had a crucial roll
in getting the suit
to perform stably at
depths of 1,000 feet but
their ambition was limited.
Yours I believe is not
and neither is mine.
There were rumors on
the confront circuit
that you are
developing a new suit,
one that can go deeper,
explore further.
I want to be your diver.
Your paper suggesting
that all life stems
from one single deoceanic
rift is compelling.
Not many people are able to
make such a bold statement.
And I have one of my own.
I have always felt
that I am destined
to make discoveries that will
change the course of humanity.
Your expedition, Dr.
Fletcher is the first
with ambition that
matches my own.
You need someone who will
push themselves to the limit.
You need me.
Whatever it is your
searching for down there.
I can find it.
Flowing the descent now.
Activating suit illumination.
- Pressure's good.
Orientation's good.
Continue the descent.
- You're
reaching the maximum
tolerance of the suit.
- I'm approaching the source
of the seismic reading.
Keep lowering.
- The suit
isn't tested on these depths.
- I'm testing it now.
Give me another 200
feet, I'm almost there.
Lowering to 1,500 feet.
- Visibility's dire.
Give me some more light.
There's something down here.
- Olive?
I can't hear you.
- Dara?
Dara are you there?
- Repeat
your last transmission.
I can't hear anything
pull her up.
Get her out of there.
- Olive, olive, olive, olive.
Breathe, breathe.
Breathe, breathe.
Thought we lost you there.
- The exosuit failed.
- We lost contact with you.
But you're back now.
- What happened down there?
- I don't remember.
- Most likely cerebral hypoxia.
That would explain
the memory loss.
You should get it back.
But I wanna see you
everyday until we dock.
And for now,
make sure you get some rest.
- I shouldn't of let
you go that deep.
- I run the dive.
This is on me.
- But you could've died.
- All part of the job.
- You need to listen more.
- Dara.
You saved my life.
Thank you.
- Just doing my job.
You're back early.
- Dr. Fletcher.
- This the tobe I had?
What the fuck
happened down there?
There's millions of
pounds of damage.
The whole diving's fucked.
- I was almost killed.
- What happened down there?
- I don't remember.
- The dive has been
postponed indefinitely.
You destroyed my suit.
My research is
wasted, you are fired.
- But Dr. Fletcher.
- I don't want to see your
face 'till we make port.
You're lucky I don't
throw you overboard.
Enjoy your leave.
It's going to last awhile.
- What's the damage?
- Oxygen tank's burst.
- How?
- A blockage.
No way to fix it, i
need to replace it.
- I know Fletcher fired you.
It's not right.
- It's done.
- You'll be home in five days.
- I'd like to
remind all crew on Shaw beak
to submit for a full
physical for the ship
Dr. froid spark.
I'm gonna further announce
the intra permit to off limits
to all personnel
after 5pm is complete.
- Here let me.
- You're back then.
- Just docked.
- Have you seen Matthew yet?
You put that down.
Stop wasting time with this
old country, go see your fella.
He's been moping
around since you left.
- You've been looking
out for him, haven't you?
- Of course I have darling.
Now get inside and put a
smile back on his face.
- We'll catch you later.
- Hello?
- Hi.
- Olive.
Why didn't you tell
me you were back?
- It wasn't planned.
- We have three new
patients at work.
It's absolutely crazy.
I can't let em' down.
- Of course.
You should go in.
- But you're here.
- And I'll be here
when you get home.
You're late already.
- It's only a single.
I'll be back for tea.
In fact,
I'm gonna cook you dinner.
Crab rozau, you're
gonna love it.
- You're good to me.
- I'll be back
before you know it.
- Matt.
- You down here?
- Just finishing up.
- Wow, you've been busy.
- Good day?
- It is now.
Five months.
- I thought about you,
every day.
- I'm no good on my own.
- I don't know.
House has never looked better.
- I won't leave again.
I'm back.
For good this time.
- Going to gym.
- I can see.
- I did do something
all me self.
- Maybe I'll
make it up to you.
- What you up to today, trouble?
- I've got something
to keep me busy.
- I'm glad you're home.
Don't go changing.
I'll be back soon.
- You're okay.
- You down here?
- Wait, I'll come up.
- You already, yeah?
Table's booked for six.
- I'm coming.
What are you doing back?
- I'm tired.
We should've
finished an hour ago.
You're still in your pj's?
What have you been up to today?
Lazy day?
You're wearing shadow.
- I'm fine, I'll go get changed.
- You alright?
- I'm fine.
- Fuckin' this idiot.
Come on mate.
You'll be sick.
- I'm tired.
Let's try for a better
introduction this time.
A smokescreen.
Trying to hide are we?
Come on.
What are you?
- Where
does it come from?
- The dive.
- You stole this?
- I found it.
- You shouldn't of took it.
- I went through
a lot in that day.
It was an egg before.
It got lodged in the suit.
I didn't know what it was.
Still don't.
- It's a separate part
of sorts.
It's old.
Really old, almost pre-historic.
We found it so deep I'm
surprised it survived up here.
Look at that.
It does look ill.
- What do you mean?
- It's coloration's
faded, that's not good.
It's a pretty thing.
- Stop!
- You alright?
- I'm fine.
- Have you seen a doctor
since we got back?
- I don't need to.
- Can you remember a
bit what happened to you
down there yet?
- No.
But I'm fine.
- Have you told Matt?
- He'd only worry.
- I'll laugh.
- If you wanna help,
tell me if that's a new species.
- It won't be new.
The ocean's more ancient
than the mountains.
- Is it a new find?
- I don't know.
I can't be sure here.
You need to bring it to the lab.
- I don't work there anymore.
- And Dr. Fletcher cannot
find out about this.
Promise me.
- You have been under
a lot of stress, olive.
You need to get some rest.
- Promise me.
This is between us.
- I promise.
- How was work?
- Worse than ever.
I could deal with his
crap when we were at sea.
I have the ocean for company.
I'm off to the locals
tonight to see if I can
get the wall swaying again.
The grogs better than what
we had on the boat at least.
You and Matt should come down.
- Maybe.
- Is everything alright
with you and him?
- Five months is a long time.
- He's a good guy.
I imagine he's a good listener.
- Thanks for
coming down, dara.
- That thing,
whatever it is,
you need to find
out what it eats.
It's malnourished.
And if you really want
to categorize this,
come by the weekend.
You can have my pass.
No one will know.
- Thanks.
You've got to eat something.
- If you don't want
me to borrow his bike
he shouldn't of
left the keys in it.
- You could've been arrested.
- The Cambodia police
aren't as uptight as here.
- She's a wild one your sister.
Your turn.
Aw, she's a cheat, that's the
second time you've had me.
- Skilled.
- Oh no.
No, no.
- Oh yes.
I think so.
- It's a gift.
- A gift, don't be impolite.
- You are a bad influence.
- No she's good for you.
If I smell like a press.
What's this?
- You've trained him well.
You gonna marry him then?
- We're not like that.
- Still.
He's hot though.
Mamma always said
you had a good eye.
- I miss her.
- Me too.
Hurry up!
My sister needs a drink.
- Can you hear that?
- Are you okay?
- I'm bleeding.
- Yeah, let me help.
Here, help me.
- Hello?
- What have
you got in your basement?
- Fletcher.
- You took
something from my dive.
That research belongs to me,
you are in serious
shit little girl.
- Dr. Fletcher, I don't
what you think you've heard
but I don't have--
- don't
lie to me, olive.
Dara told me everything,
you are a thief.
- Dara?
- You
have a new species.
You bring that creature
to me right now
or I'll come bang at
your door with the police
and a team full of lawyers.
You'll never dive
again you little thief.
You have one hour.
- Everything alright?
- I need to go into work.
- Today?
But we're all going out.
- Well somebody has
to pay the bills.
- Calm down.
- And what are your
plans for today?
More slacking off?
After you've eaten
more of my food.
- Olive.
- For your information,
i was gonna take you out.
To say thanks.
But you can stuff it.
- What's wrong with you?
Ellie, wait.
- What's the matter?
This is as fresh as I can get.
- Is that the spawn?
That creature belongs to me.
- Get away from there.
You're hurting it.
- It was you who showed me.
- It's mine!
- You don't
even know what you have.
- You're
wrong, Fletcher.
I have a way to feed it.
- She owes me an apology.
- Leave out of it, Ellie.
Come on.
- It was just a joke.
Lighten up.
She needs to bring
it down a peg or two.
What does she even do all day?
She thinks she's so important.
- I dunno.
- You don't know a lot
about your girlfriend?
Too bad.
- And where are you going?
- I'm gonna find out
what's down there.
- You can't, it's her work.
- Hey!
What are you doing down here?
- Getting your attention.
- You can't be down here.
- Hey, you're hurting me.
- You can't be down here.
- What's wrong with you?
I came to help you.
You've lost a lot, even
Matt thinks you're crazy.
- Matt said that?
- As good as.
What's happened to you?
And what are you
doing down here?
- It's called work, sis.
Maybe you should
try it sometime.
- You're not as special
as what you think
you are, olive.
- It's okay.
No one's going to
hurt you again.
- I like your sister but,
it's nice just the two of us.
Don't feel like I've
seen you in ages.
- My work's important.
- I know.
I know.
Ellie didn't break
anything did she?
She's a wild one your sister.
You know my work's pretty
busy at the moment.
Yeah this there's
little old lady.
Ms. Jones.
She's almost 90 but,
she doesn't have long left.
We're monitoring
around the clock.
She's mute.
Can't communicate her off.
Can't make a sound.
It's sad.
- Very sad.
- Local
experts inform the council
yet again about the severe
weather set to hit the coast
in the next few days.
Residents and flood
risk areas are advised
to take necessary precautions
in the events of flooding.
- What are you doing?
I didn't expect this.
You here for lunch?
- You left your ID.
- You came all
this way for that?
- Thought you'd need it.
- No I,
I do, thanks.
Do you wanna come for lunch?
- I can't.
- You know what Dr.
Fletcher was like, Oliver,
he just keeps on
pushing and pushing.
He just constantly and
he wouldn't let up but,
I didn't mean to
let anything out.
I'm sorry.
I screwed up.
I haven't seen Fletcher
since I told him.
Did you know there was
a fire on the boat?
I'll do anything I can to help.
It's pretty dark in here, olive.
- Over here.
Children grow up so fast.
- Oh my god.
- Fletcher was wrong
to try and take it from me.
You should never separate
a mother from her child.
- You okay?
- This fucking wine.
- What's wrong?
- A patient went missing today.
I'm really worried about her.
- Shit.
- Management is starting
to point fingers.
They say it's my fault.
I could lose my job.
- I'm sure everything
will be fine.
Have a beer instead.
- I'm leaving tomorrow.
- What? Why?
- I'm a traveler.
Gotta keep rolling.
- I'll be working tomorrow.
- Then I guess this is goodbye.
- We should have a drink.
- I don't feel like it.
- Oh come on,
don't be like that.
Forget about the red.
We got white.
I could open the white.
Let's have a drink,
it'll be a laugh.
- Okay.
- They fired me.
- What is it?
Let me see.
I can't believe it.
I can't believe it.
I have to tell them.
Ellie, Matt.
- Olive.
- You bitch.
Let me go.
You're crazy, let me go!
- Ow!
You're my sister.
My own flesh and blood.
- What are you doing?
Let me go.
Matt needs help!
- He needs nothing.
- Olive!
Let me out you crazy bitch.
Come on!
- Olive.
- Olive.
Where is she?
- No.
- You attacked me.
How could you do that?
To me.
- You love her.
- Ellena?
- Matt!
- Come on.
- Stop taking
up, where are you?
- Olive!
- Be quiet.
She needs rest.
- What the fuck is that?
- She's a god.
A god I command.
She won't hurt you
unless I want her to.
At first I was overwhelmed.
It's a merciful thing.
The inability of the
human mind to correlate
all its contents.
But now I understand.
They have slumbered for ions
down there.
In the dark below.
Waiting to be awoken.
They chose me.
- You've gone fucking mental.
- How dare you.
I was going to
share this with you.
- You're a murderer.
- I did what was
deemed to be done.
- You killed Matt.
- A necessary sacrifice.
He would not of survived
what is to come.
Let me show you.
- Olive, don't.
It'll kill you.
What are you doing in there?
What is that?
- Our future.
Your future.
We live on a placid
island of ignorance.
In the mists of black
seas of infinity.
And it was not meant that
we should voyage far.
But I have seen beyond
the bounds of infinity.
And drawn down demons
from the start.
I have harnessed the
shadows that stride
from world to world.
To sew death and madness.
- Olive.
You need to put that back.
- She won't ever hurt me.
- Is everyone okay?
I can hear an awful noise.
- Get me out of here.
- Hang on, darling.
I can't see a bloody thing.
- Ms. crown I'm sorry
but we've checked the basement,
we've checked the
perimeter and there's
no trace of this animal
you described missing.
Put in a call for the
station we're gonna need a
trauma counselor
or something now.
We've got a broken
drainage break downstairs.
Think the suspect could've
escaped down there.
We notified dispatch,
get some searches out,
maybe have a look
in the sewer system
and see what's going on.
- As water
levels continue to rise
and more families are forced
to evacuate flood risk areas,
government officials
are coming under fire
for slow response times
in the current crisis.
Over 600 homes in
the north of england
have suffered severe flooding.
And what experts are
calling the biggest
rain fall of the last 10 years.
Flood defenses across the
region failed to provide
adequate protection
against the rising waters
with key roads cutting
off emergency services.
One local government
deny reports
that a lack of
appropriate flood defenses
has diverted the
majority of flood water
into the sewage system
hundreds of miles of
the nearby coastal region.
Environmental groups are
citing the contamination
as the reason behind
the dwindling marine
life in the region.
With the local fishing industry
in an understandable uproar.
This past week, thousands
of dead fish and other
marine life have washed
up on nearby beaches.
Including some species
never before seen
in the blue waters.
Several beaches
along the coastline
have already been
declared at fault.
- Mommy, what's that?
There's more over there.
