There are secrets better left unknown, and treasures better left undiscovered. In 1995, a scientific expedition found something that turns myths into nightmares...something that gives shape to fear, and form to evil...something as powerful as it is deadly. They should never have sought it. They should never have touched it. And then, they did the unthinkable...THEY BROUGHT IT BACK. See more »

Don't take my one line summary as a huge compliment to this movie, because i've only seen a handful of horror films. However this is the horror movie I was most entertained by and the one I like to watch numerous times. The characters are interesting, it's pretty scary, and it at least tries to sound intelligent. The first half is a tad slow moving but the second half will no doubt keep your interest. My only big complaint is the incredibly dark atmosphere which will make you turn the brightness on your televisoion all the way to the max amount. It's very violent and bloody but it didn't offend me in the least. If you feel like renting a quality horror film I would recommend this one.
