John A. Curtis,
It was refreshing to finally see a movie where the inside of a cave is portrayed realistically! I am an ex-caver (spelunker), and for them to get the shots they did using the little light that comes from lanterns in a cave was amazing (without using back-light that was obvious). It drives me nuts to see cave movies where large areas of the cave are lit enough to see using mere flashlights and headlamps. At best, you get a spot that you can pan around; even with the best of lamps. With all the humidity, you need a focused beam, not a wide angle. With a wide angle you can see about four feet. Regarding previous comments; there were no lens flare effects! Caves are humid. They swallow up light, and what you see in this movie is exactly what it is like in a cave. Amazingly black. It can be terrifying in a cave. Even in cramped areas, the angles of the surfaces do not reflect light directly, but rather dissipate it, even when wet.
That being said, I don't think they had room to get any better action shots than they did. The movie brought to me a true nostalgic sense of the cave environment, with a wonderful twist of terror. Yes, there was a lot of screaming. I guess people do that when they're afraid! The monster is cheesy, but it is explained in the end and makes sense. The end could have been fleshed out better; but all in all, it was a fun ride while it lasted.
I would recommend this rental for anyone who wants to understand what it is like to go caving without the benefit of stage lighting. Watch it in the dark too. When I rented it, it was called "Cavern".
