Leviathan (1989) – George Cosmatos

The first of the underwater movies to be released in 1989, Leviathan, a fun little creature feature with monster work Stan Winston, is the next film in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies for my viewing pleasure.

Cameron did a lot of model work and visual effects for various science…
