A Fortress Anchor is a Film Star

I am just watching the movie "Oculus".
For all you anchorholics a Fortress anchor is included (FX-37 I think)

Sorry, no sailing, but an anchor .
I guess you will have to watch.

Is the scope correct? Was the setting force adequate? Were the Mud Palms helpful? What is the correct angle for penetrating a human skull 32, or 45 degrees? Would another new generation anchor have performed better?

This is obviously a modified Fortress.
Notice the holes for multiple setting angles.

Brian is this a new model?
The homicide version?

Hey, its got wheels on, does that help it to slide along the seabed better?

Noelex,

Too much!

Glad to see that they had the Mud Palms installed to help the "setting" performance.

Here's the Oculus movie trailer, and you will see the Fortress make its brief, chilling appearance at 1:19.
