Four teenagers, Malik, Gem, Barbie and Wes, take a excursion to an old series of mine tunnels under the border area of California and Mexico where they, and a few other people traveling by, become trapped and are soon set upon by ghosts of a series of victims who are under the control of a warlock bent on carnage.

Edward Furlong's pants didn't fit at first because the waist and inseam sizes were accidentally switched. The pants were too long, and too tight at the waist. However, they fit Paul Cram perfectly. See more »
After Gen runs outside to greet Wes, the image is reversed. You can tell, as the name on Gen's shirt is reversed and the logo on Malik's shirt is reversed. This appears to have been intentional, to maintain the continuity of the vehicle being on the right and the house on the left. See more »
This is a standard teens-against-monsters horror quickie, and you know what that means. There is not one iota of originality in this movie; you've seen every one of these recycled plot devices a hundred times before.
Stock teen character personality types: check. Stupidly going somewhere they shouldn't be: check. In the middle of nowhere: check. Grotesque, vicious ghosts/creatures of some kind that get a kick out of killing teens: check. Teens turning into monsters too, and trying to croak the remaining survivors: check. Weird old man who has a history with the evil: check. Incessant screaming, futile banging on doors to escape, arguing about how to kill the creatures, running around in caves, characters "calming down" each other, lots of red paint on stomachs and necks, surprise attacks from supposed allies on each other, cars that don't run, monsters that just keep on chasing you etc etc etc. Check.
The acting and scripting are even below the established low level for this kind of movie. This one is only good for background noise while you're doing chores; or to laugh at it MST3K style. As for a story? Nope.
