Goofs

After the main character hits her head and awakens alone, she finds the gate that has been chained and locked on the outside. The yellow police tape is on the inside. However, it's not inconceivable that the gate was sealed by the police, and they could've placed the warning tape before locking the gate. See more »

Not a bad film!
18 February 2008 | by (London england) – See all my reviews

People are slating this as a "bad" film however it is a decent enough, unnerving thriller that doesn't quite give the feeling of crushing claustrophobia the Descent does, and doesn't quite set you on the edge of your seat like monster chase films such as Creep does...

Some camera shots are a bit too "arty" for my taste, and detracts slightly from the overall effect seeing as it is a horror film, however it is easy to see what they were trying to achieve with such closed in, minimal light sourced tunneled shots that fade into the distance only as the main character rounds the bend taking the torchlight out of shot.

But overall, a good enough film with a slightly transparent ending that will either have you smiling or groaning!
