In 1948, a group of miners finds a gallery full of emeralds in a salt mine in Switzerland, but they are attacked by giant black beetles and only one of them survives. In the present days, the explorer John Palmer is ready to take vacations in Greece with his family when he is contacted and invited by a stranger called Vincent to lead his team in an expedition into a mine in Switzerland. In return, Vincent offers a large amount to John and the cottage nearby a lake and the entrance of the mine for his family to spend the vacation. John accepts the offer, and while leading the group underground in the tunnels, he finds that their ambitious leader Marcel is a very dangerous man. When John meets giant black beetles in the cave, he orders the group to return but Marcel threatens the safety of his family, forcing John to lead the team to the deep location of the emerald mine.Written by

When the spelunkers are going through the "egg chamber", a giant "queen beetle" shows up, and it's suggested that killing the queen will throw the nest into chaos. The problem with this is that queens only appear among social insects, such as ants, termites, bees and wasps. Beetles are scavengers, not social, and even the isolation suggested in this movie would not produce a queen-based communal structure. Scavengers compete for food; they do not co-operate. See more »

For some reason Redbox started renting this "B" rated movie. Well they got my dollar and that's 1 hour and 30 minutes, I'll never get back. Very Hard to understand why anyone would pay to have a movie like this put out. Really hard to believe this film had a budget. The acting was just plain awful, I was expecting the boom chichka boom boom music to come on at any time. The two female leads we semi hot but their acting made it even hard to look at. I've seen better Godzilla movies, so please if you read this do not waste your time on this horrible excuse for a film. I guess you have to have at least ten lines to qualify for a review so I need to ramble on a little longer. I wouldn't even waste my time writing on this but I feel it is my civic duty to save others from the pain I experienced watching this.
