David Stone, his ex-girlfriend, Sara, and six other youth, five men, one with a morbid fear of bugs, and a woman, decide to go to the Shankali, Hyderabad, India to explore an underground cave. At the outskirts of the city, they are met by their tourist guide, Kafi, and taken several miles underground. This is where their trip will turn into an nightmare as an underground quake will block their return path, virtually burying them amongst giant centipedes. Written by
Aside from the question of why a spelunking group is carrying a flare gun in the first place, when Sara shoots a pursuing centipede in the mouth, it falls back into the water and the flare extinguishes. Flares carry their own oxygen supply, somewhat like solid-fuel rockets do, and are fully capable of staying lit underwater or in rainy conditions. See more »
I caught this movie really late at night on the Sci-Fi Channel - aka Insomniac Central - which seems to proudly own the rights to every bad movie ever made. If you think their daytime programming is awful, you should check out what they wait until after midnight to air.
Movies like this.
It was a 120-minute train wreck that I truly couldn't take my eyes off of. I have seriously been witness to one of the worst movies ever made, complete with a cast that, if they play their cards right, might one day graduate to bigger and better roles in amateur porn.
It's nothing you haven't seen before - typical giant bug of the day run amok due to irresponsible toxic waste dumping movie (complete with exclamation point) - only worse. It's an anachronism in a way - a throwback to those cheap giant bug creatures of the 50's. Only this one isn't played for camp.
It actually takes itself seriously.
There is, though, one reason to check this out during one of the 1,265 times that Sci-Fi will re-air it over the next 5 months: 'The Dance' scene must be witnessed to be believed.
