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 »

This movie is so awful people should watch it to see how awful one can get. If you put aside the terrible acting, stupid dialog, really really bad effects, if you put aside that people who wrote the story didn't give any thought about how mines look, how caving is done, what bugs look like and how they act, if you put aside that characters in the movie always do the opposite what you would do you are left with a story that has more holes then all the swiss cheese in this universe. The outline of the story is not that terrible really, but what they have done with it is something completely else. In the beginning I said people should watch it to see how awful a sci-fi movie could get. But keep in mind this is more like a parody than a real sci-fi.
