Survival thrillers are my personal favorite. Is it your case as well? If yes, let me take you on a tour of the Netflix survival thriller Deep Fear. Marcus Adam’s movie Deep Fear is all about what mystery and thrill lovers want:  Suspense, fear, and ultimate survival. But we all know these qualities of a movie are attributed to visuals and sounds. The more a movie is dark, the more it’s shady, and the more it’s loud, the more it’s intense. Isn’t it? Want to know where was Deep Fear movie filmed? Dig in to know the amazing filming locations.

Netflix’s sixth most-watched movie, Deep Fear, was released back in October 2023. Robert Cappel Jr and Sophia Eptamenitis wrote the movie. The story of the movie revolves around the survival of a top-class yachtswoman, who on her solo trip way, is forced by a group of drug smugglers to recover a cocaine stash that washes away in the shark-infested water.

The movie casts Madilima Ghenea as Noami, the main female character, Ed Westwick as Jackson, Macarena Gomez, Stany Coppet, Ibrahima Gueye, Marco Canadea, Shane Rowe, Mariana Garradas, and David Leguesse. 

Deep Fear was filmed primarily in Malta, Europe.

However, the movie is set in the Caribbean Sea; it was filmed in Malta instead. Malta is an island country in the Mediterranean Sea in southern Europe. Malta is a known filming location whose history goes back to 1925, and since then, it has been one of the top names in filming locations. The picturesque locations of Malta provide filmmakers with a low-budget movie to appear as the opposite.

In the case of Deep Fear, the movie was filmed at Malta Film Studio, located on the island’s eastern side, for over six weeks. Malta’s SFX facilities took position and provided a convincing Caribbean substitute. Malta Studios has an interior water tank and two big exterior tanks on the island’s coast. Mark Silk, the renowned underwater cinematographer, and his team worked on Deep Fear’s underwater scenes.

The interior tanks allow you to shoot surface water scenes and perfect stormy visuals, as you might have seen in movies like Orca and Killer Whale. The exterior ones are well suited for underwater deep filming. The low-budget movie’s choice, Maltaa, proved to be satisfying.

During an interview regarding the filming of the movie, director Marcus Adams had to say, “Imagination always creates much greater fear than any image. Combining the masterful visual effects of LipSync with Mark Silk’s worldwide underwater cinematography and the stunning locations will ensure that we create a fresh and exhilarating addition to the genre.”
