This is a very entertaining film.
12 February 2010 | by miguelsinaloa7See all my reviews

This is a very good movie. It starts with a a group of people who enter the caverns;a couple gets separated from the rest of them and while they are kissing a hideous monster kills the man. The woman goes mad but escapes.Then when a scientist is trying to find out what happened he sets up a group to find out what just did happen. They enter the cave, unaware of what awaits them.Its soundtrack is what sets the mood for most of the film. Perhaps the best of the film is its ending.I wont spoil anything. What is probably the scariest is that we see the creatures shining eyes glaring at the persons who have entered.There is blood,betrayal,love,horror,terror,suspense! A great film to see.
