Under The Mountain
17 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

I saw this when I was extremely young and it scared the living daylights out of me too! I was scared just going to bed in the night time for ages after , it really was scarier than anything else i ever saw when i was younger or anything I've ever seen since! Strangely enough i am a little nostalgic for the same reasons, would be interesting to see it now. The monsters were extremely scary and as far as I can remember there were no points when I actually felt the characters were safe. If I remember correctly the children had two rings or stones, blue and red and they had to somehow use them together to destroy the swamp like monsters. I think it ended well or with some sort of possibility in the future that the alien things would return.
