John A. Curtis,
In the sub-genre of horror films set in underground settings (ex. The Descent), if this is not the worst, then it's close to it. 8 people (including 2 women) decide to explore an unknown cavern in Russia, someone dies, they get stuck inside, and then things get worse. I didn't mind that the story was simple, I didn't mind so much that the characters were woefully underdeveloped (except perhaps the black guy), but I did mind several other things. First and foremost, there was some truly obnoxious camera work, as in very shaky and put at weird angles for the sake of being original. A chaotic uncontrolled camera supposed to show confusion and/or tension failed miserably, in part because of the atrocious editing and frenetic cuts. Whenever some action occurred, it seemed to me that the "creators" were basically hiding, cheaply, what was happening by combining one or more of the following: mad shaking, constant perspective change, black image and/or strobing pictures lasting a fraction of a second.
You'll get several darkness moments that rely on screams and sound effects for scares. Those moments become tiresome, don't scare due to underwhelming sound and feel like a cheap way to fill up screen time in an already short movie. When it's not dark, your vision gets disturbed by the lights on the characters aimed straight at the camera or lens flares. Bad sound mixing sometimes hinders comprehension. It's a shaky cam venture kind of like the Blair Witch Project, but there was no logical reason for it. Even for artistic reasons, it was done horribly. Special effects were virtually non-existent, except for one pretty gory early body, and the creature was hidden until the very end. You'd think that was conducive to suspense and mystery, but not really. If I had paid money for this film, I would have felt cheated.
Rating: 2 out of 10 (terrible)
