Thomas "Jack" Jackman a security patrolman, battles through the high winds to find out why all contact with the station has been lost. Originally built for gas exploration, and then abandoned, the site had recently been taken over by a multi-national research team intent on drilling deeper into the earth's crust than ever before.

Thomas often used the term "over and out" to end radio conversations. "Over" means "I have finished speaking and am awaiting a reply." "Out" means "I have finished the communication." "Over and Out" should never be used together in serious radio communication. See more »
Thomas 'Jack' Jackman:
You know, when I was a young boy... my mother told me that the sun was driven around the world in a chariot drawn by four horses and a wizard sprinkled the stars on the roof of the sky.
My mom told me the sun is one of a hundred billion in the galaxy, which is one of a hundred billion in the universe and that some starlight has traveled since before dinosaurs were on the earth... and in it's journey right here, right now. That's not a mystery, that's a fact.

The GNE security agent Thomas 'Jack' Jackman (Adrian Paul) travels to the Jebel Afra drilling station in a remote area of the Sahara desert to seek out twenty-five scientists from the research team of Professor Borman (Anthony Waller) that are missing and without any contact with the base. Jack finds the station deserted and weird marks painted with blood on the wall.
On the next morning, Jack meets the gorgeous and sexy Dr. Jennie J.C. Christianson (Kate Nauta) alone in the base and she explains that the research team had drilled very deep and released something. After that, they have been affected and started killing each other and shows the bodies of Professor Borman and another scientist in the refrigerating chamber. J.C. wants to leave the place a.s.a.p. but Jack contacts the operator Kat (Amanda Douge) and she tells him that they should wait for the police. Further, they had met a Russian scientist wandering with sample of gas.
Jack, who misses his wife that had committed suicide and killed their two children, continues to investigate the station and find videotapes from Dr. Borman advising that his team had released evil from the depths of hell. Jack has visions and daydreams and believes that J.C. is actually a succubus that wants to seduce him to leave the location. What is the mystery in that remote station?
"Nine Miles Down" is a surprisingly good low budget horror movie, basically in one location and great performances of Adrian Paul and the extremely gorgeous and sexy Kate Nauta. The plot is engaging and well- developed keeping the mystery until the very last scene. In the end, hell is in our minds indeed. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Nove Milhas para o Inferno" ("Nine Miles to Hell")
