The Abyss, Mother Ship Tunnel Section

original movie prop

This tunnel section was created by the Special Effects team for the scenes where Virgil “Bud” Brigman (Ed Harris) was taken by the NTI alien to the Mother ship which was hidden at the bottom of the ocean. The alien took him floating on this “rollercoaster” ride through this beautiful long tunnel which appeared to be the entrance of the mother ship. This tunnel section was only a small part of this complex system and is made of a resin kind of material. The lighter parts in the pattern on the tube seems to be tiny holes but are actually grinded spots, made as thin as light could shine through it. Special colored lighting shining through these thin layers created the beautiful “extra terrestrial” look inside the tube. The tunnel section was signed by Special Effects team member Donald Pennington. It measures about about 3 feet tall and 11 ½ inches wide and has a Premiere Props LOA......(picture number 3 shows a member of the Special Effects team working on one of the tunnel sections....pictures 4 and 5 are screenshots of the the scene where Ed Harris was taken by the NTI inside the tunnel)
