The Evil Below
The Evil Below, AKA El Diablo, takes place on a tropical island where skipper Max Cash (played
by the co-director, Wayne Crawford, whose other industry credits include writing,
producing, and writing theme music) is about to lose
his small boat. Even at that, he would rather bang his crew member, Sheri Able, then
try to drum up work. June Chadwick arrives looking to rent his boat to find the
wreck of the El Diablo, supposedly sunk nearby and full of religious treasures.
Several on the island seem to have an interest in this wreck and/or its
treasure, including a local priest, an expert on wrecks, one of Max's
competitors, and more. Max doesn't believe in the wreck until his father is
killed and additional evidence turns up.

as her buns in a thong bikini.
