In 1987 James Cameron directed one of the best science fiction thriller films: Abyss. The filming took place in a half-built nuclear reactor in Gaffney (South Carolina). Want to know the current status of the studio? You'll be surprised how it is after nearly 25 years.
The film included many, and some complicated, underwater scenes. People said that James Cameron demanded before the shooting and writing to all parties, a certificate stating that they could swim without a problem. As mentioned, the film was shot on a half-built nuclear reactor. To fill the main pond, it took several million gallons of water. This gives us an approximation to the size of the set. In fact, its magnitude was such that the cost to dismantle it became so high that until today has remained largely intact. The following figures show the state between 2003 and 2004. Previously, there were many elements of the set that have been stolen by fans of the film.
