Leviathan (1989)

‘Leviathan’ is a science fiction story based on a flesh-feasting alien living on the ocean floor. It survives on blood, and still managed to live long after a ship full of Russian sailors killed themselves to keep it from finding more blood (because it could’ve gotten to the mainland). But, once a bunch of silver minors who have a huge base on the ocean floor that resembles the ship from The Abyss, the alien has managed to infest the crew, who wonder if they should sacrifice themselves, like the Russians, in order to avoid the possibility of this thing being able to live and getting to the surface.The story is similar to ‘Alien’ because even though the ship crew is being ravaged by this killer alien, the company that owns the ship wants nothing to do with them for fear that, if word got out about a disastorous mission, then their stock would plummet. You also have a similar alien-in-the-stomach gag. It’s like The Abyss in that they’re miners working on the ocean floor. And the alien itself has qualities like ‘The Thing,’ as it is able to mutate it’s victims. And it seems like the only effective way of killing it is to torch it. If they only hack it to pieces, the pieces can still survive and mutate into new aliens.
