The codenamed "D-6" or "Metro 2" in Moscow, Russia was a highly classified underground system which parallels the public Moscow Metro. It is this underground system that is directly referenced in the film. This system was built during the Stalin administration and codenamed by the KGB. It was built to facilitate functions and movement of high level state security members and agents. The length of the "D-6" is rumored to exceed even that of the Metro. It is said to connect the Kremlin, FSB Headquarters, the government airport at Vnukovo-2, a small underground town at Ramenki, and other locations of national importance. In 1994 an exploration group, the "Diggers of the Underground Planet", stumbled upon an entrance to the "D-6" and started exploring it. See more »
The entrance to hell has been sealed off. When we arrived the place to close it was already sealed. Someone was there before us.

I must say the movie is highly under-rated in IMDb. We are not looking here for a typical FBI Thriller or a romantic plot. It is a discovery of a legend by Sergei and this leads to so many discoveries. Although the movie is mostly set in dark and closed alleys, but it was well shot and actually depicts the real feeling as if you are inside that place as defined in the plot.
It is a 'different' kind of a movie and it is actually very nicely done. The story has been treated well.
The Sister tried to protect the kids from daemons that lived at higher levels... and I presume all the kids and the sister died of hunger... But what was not clear is why would children (shadows of daemons) kill people who would come down... Well maybe because all of them had to sacrifice their lives and die of hunger.
