Decades after a rock church in communist Romania's Carpathians caved when an expedition caused a landslide and buried everyone, Dr. Nicolai's scientific team exploring the associated Templar Knights monster fighting-legend discovers a deep, flooded cave system and hires the brothers Jack and Tyler's brilliant divers team to explore it. Another explosion traps them, after finding a mysterious parasite turning all species carnivore, and later an independently evolved predator species. Jack may be infected and turning, but Tyler sticks with him, so the group splits, hunted by the monsters, which also fly. Written by
The film claims to have some basis in truth because new micro-ecologies have been discovered in deep caves, especially in Romania. According to film consultant Dr. Christi Lascu (acclaimed speleologist and Romanian editor of National Geographic magazine), 35 brand new species were found in the Movila Caves in the late-1980s. Among the species found was a 10cm centipede with a poisonous bite. There was nothing the size of the creature in the movie, but in theory there is not a limit for the size of animals living down there. See more »
Several scenes show the explorers using their HID (High Intensity discharge) dive lights out of the water. HID lights use the surrounding water as a coolant and thus cannot be used for long periods of time above water as they would heat up too much and croak. See more »
At first, I thought it couldn't survive outside of a cave environment. Now, I'm not sure. I think it wants to get out.

Two things - one: this film is nowhere near as bad as some say. Of course, that doesn't make it good, but I enjoyed it.
Second - the prop used to show the strength of communications signal when the first scout explores the cave system is in fact a silver Korg guitar tuner! Not worth mentioning usually except that it is shown in close up several times during this sequence, with the row of red lights normally used to show how close to the note the guitar string is representing here the strength of the signal from the first scout diver...
You can freeze the DVD on one of the closeups to see the words "Cents" and "Hz" and the note names E A D G B E written on the tuner. Classic.
Now that's what I call cheap props for an expensive film. Incidentally, the Korg tuners are very good - at tuning guitars.
