The #22 single’s edition release from Dark Force Entertainment is the obscure 1974 G-Rated adventure movie originally titled The Treasure of Jamaica Reef and was later re-released with additional gory and R-rated footage as Evil in the Deep to capitalize on the JAWS craze sweeping the country at the time. Panned by critics and viewers alike, it does have some value worth noting for its beautiful underwater photography in scope and great cast. The all-star cast includes Stephen Boyd (Ben-Hur, Fantastic Voyage), David Ladd (Hart’s War), Chuck Woolery (Love American Style), Rosey Grier (The Thing with Two Heads), Darby Hinton (Daniel Boone) and the beautiful then unknown Cheryl Ladd (Charlie’s Angels) as Cheryl Stooplemoor. The story revolves around the search for a treasure-laden Spanish Galleon that sank over 200 years ago. Although considered a Grade Z movie it does seem to have a mesmerizing effect when viewed today warranting the new HD release from Dark Force Entertainment.
