Something has gone terribly wrong at research station 320, a secret research facility one mile beneath the earth's surface. All communications are gone, all means of escape destroyed and an extremely dangerous horde of rapidly mutating ancient flesh eating creatures are consuming everything in their path. Eight survivors of the outpost, two research subjects, three mercenaries, two research technicians and a medic barricade themselves inside a remote area of the facility with little food, almost no means of defense and little hope of rescue. Their one possible escape route is through thirteen levels of terror that will lead them to the surface. And one of them is not who they seem to be, but the darkness itself which has taken human form. Written by Anonymous

B-type movie (Not bad)
22 September 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

First of all if you see the screen-shots of this movie on IMDb then you get idea that you can better not expect too much from this movie. But this movie is much better… OK it is still B-type movie even if the special effects much better than other average B-type movies, with get much higher vote than this one. I find it kind of strange because the other B-types movies are worse and still get high vote even if special effect are very bad CG. Now in this one you see nice juicy blood, some intestines and some enemy's look kind of Diablo like and more. Just its shame that actors are not so good. Not all of them but some of them cannot act and there is some camera view in the beginning of the movie which is bad. But still I had some fun to watch it not like other movies with are not worthy of MY TIME!!!

(B-type movie = Scifi,action,horror)
