Their rescue mission leads them to a disused lab, but what should have been a simple raid turns into a series of twisted and mind bending incidents where the free and the caged switch places, in this tormented psychological horror.

2 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Some raw powerful performances, and truly chilling moments in this haunting Simon De Selva movie. The story takes that classic horror/science fiction set-up - a disparate and desperate bunch of characters entering some hostile environment and being menaced by a mysterious predator (From "Alien" to "Scooby Do"!) - and gives it a smartly original slant (the energy of the human soul being channelled into some new form of WMD). De Selva's direction is slick, atmospheric; and brings us some great set-piece moments, and nightmarish images. Tom Hardy (as Matt) brilliantly charts his character's journey from zero to hero, and Leo Bill plays the self-serving Danny with great intensity and truth. Most of the movie is set in a perfectly designed, creepily claustrophobic tunnel system where experiments are conducted on human "lab rats". And it's all carried along by a heart-thumping soundtrack.
