Storyline

In 1948, a group of miners finds a gallery full of emeralds in a salt mine in Switzerland, but they are attacked by giant black beetles and only one of them survives. In the present days, the explorer John Palmer is ready to take vacations in Greece with his family when he is contacted and invited by a stranger called Vincent to lead his team in an expedition into a mine in Switzerland. In return, Vincent offers a large amount to John and the cottage nearby a lake and the entrance of the mine for his family to spend the vacation. John accepts the offer, and while leading the group underground in the tunnels, he finds that their ambitious leader Marcel is a very dangerous man. When John meets giant black beetles in the cave, he orders the group to return but Marcel threatens the safety of his family, forcing John to lead the team to the deep location of the emerald mine.

Did You Know?

Goofs

When the spelunkers are going through the "egg chamber", a giant "queen beetle" shows up, and it's suggested that killing the queen will throw the nest into chaos. The problem with this is that queens only appear among social insects, such as ants, termites, bees and wasps. Beetles are scavengers, not social, and even the isolation suggested in this movie would not produce a queen-based communal structure. Scavengers compete for food; they do not co-operate. See more »

Caved In
30 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In all honesty, I was not expecting much from this movie, seeing as it was SyFy, but there are some decent actors here so I went ahead. I found Caved In to be a lame movie in most respects, but nowhere near the worst SyFy's done. The only reasons why I didn't rate it any lower are three quite good performances from Angela Featherstone(the best of the cast in my opinion), Christopher Atkins and Marius Chivros. The rest of the cast are bad, Colm Meaney doesn't have much to do and spends the whole movie looking lost or bored and Chelan Simmons is incredibly annoying, doing little more than screaming and other shrill antics. The actors aren't helped by the underdeveloped and stereotypical way their characters are written, or by the clichéd script and the formulaic story that further suffers from lack of tension and suspense and too many scenes to list that were unbelievable. Add to that lighting that distracted from the atmosphere and the setting's authenticity, with scenes being lit too brightly where it should have a dark, claustrophobic feel, and (even for SyFy) terrible artificial-looking effects, and you have a pretty poor movie. Overall, other than three performances, Caved In is not worth bothering with. 3/10 Bethany Cox
