The U.S. government has been using deep caves in Central America as bases for a special type of radio transmitter used for communicating with submaries. When the signal from one of these transmitters suddenly disappears, a team of soldiers and cave specialists is sent in to find out what happened. After some exploring deep underground, they stumble upon a tribe of albino cave dwellers who have been isolated from the rest of the world for thousands of years.Written by

The computer shown in use for the army's transmitter was actually an 80s home computer, manufactured by Commodore. It's either the C64 or VC20. They shared an almost identical casing design in the early 80s. The branding of the device used in the movie was taped over. See more »
I found the basic story incredible. However, when it comes to horror, stories generally are incredible; and I can think of many horror plots that are worse than this.
The plot to begin with is a bit muddled. It is not clear why these soldiers are in the jungle, and who the enemy at the beginning is, and it might have been a better idea to have the two factions slugging it out in the caves as well as having to deal with the rockman.
Nevertheless, the cast overcome the script, and Robert Powell shows that if you can play Jesus Christ you can play anything.
I am glad that the rockmen never got to talk. It would have been too much if they started speaking American English like the extra-terrestrials do on Star Trek.
All in all, this film is watchable.
