Ethel Baraona, whose always interesting articles and links we particularly missed during these two weeks of no-internet, points towards this post on io9, about the fascinating ruins of the set of James Cameron’s 1989 sci-fi flick The Abyss.
‘James Cameron’s undersea set for the 1987 filming of The Abyss at the unfinished Cherokee Nuclear Plant outside of Gaffney, South Carolina.
‘Cameron’s crew constructed one of the largest underwater film stages ever built and — because of the sheer cost of disassembling it — were forced to abandon it to the elements for 20 years.
‘The seven-million-gallon, forty-foot-deep set was eventually demolished in 2007. These shots were taken from 2003-2004.’
Some photos here, check the two sites for more, and here the site as it appeared in 1994.
I really liked and appreciated your content. Thanks.
