Refusing to believe her story about cave-dwelling monsters, the sole survivor of a spelunking exploration gone horribly wrong is forced to follow the authorities back into the caves where something awaits.
Michael J. Reynolds,
A group of friends whose leisurely Mexican holiday takes a turn for the worse when they, along with a fellow tourist, embark on a remote archaeological dig in the jungle where something evil lives among the ruins.
Trapped in an isolated gas station by a voracious Splinter parasite that transforms its still living victims into deadly hosts, a young couple and an escaped convict must find a way to work together to survive this primal terror.
A vengeful spirit has taken the form of the Tooth Fairy to exact vengeance on the town that lynched her 150 years earlier. Her only opposition is the only child, now grown up, who has survived her before.
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 plot of the movie -explorers in a cave being chased by horrific creatures who were once human- is most probably inspired by the short story The Beast in the Cave (written in 1905, published 1916), one of the earliest ones by American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, who later would create works as The Call of Cthulhu and At the Mountains of Madness. See more »
The characters seem to have completely normal uninhibited conversations under water despite having a mouthpiece fully inserted into their mouths. 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.
