Brigitte Bako and Chris Sarandon are young married divers hunting for rare snakes on an exotic island. Richard Tyson plays an evil sea captain who has a brief tryst with Brigitte. There is a very erotic love scene with Brigitte and Richard Tyson in an underwater cave. Of course, Brigitte's character is married and decides that this is to be a one time only happening, much to Tyson's chagrin. Some reviewers have branded this as a "sexploitation" flick because it has quite a bit of nudity. However, I felt that most erotic scene in the movie is when Brigitte is dancing fully clothed at a local bar. This movie also features the famous snake scene with a nude Brigitte and a snake in a tub. The exotic location and excellent film work add to the mix.
Dark Tide rates an 8 out of 10. It is available in both "R" and Unrated versions.
