Refusing to believe her story about cave-dwelling monsters, the sole survivor of a spelunking exploration gone horribly wrong is forced to follow the authorities back into the caves where something awaits.
Michael J. Reynolds,

A woman goes on vacation with her friends after her husband and daughter encounter a tragic accident. One year later she goes hiking with her friends and they get trapped in the cave. With a lack of supply, they struggle to survive and they meet strange blood thirsty creatures.Written by
Rene Rodriguez of The Miami Herald described the crawlers as "blind, snarling cave-dwellers, looking much like Gollum's bigger kin". Douglas Tseng of The Straits Times also noted that the crawlers looked similar to Gollum, being a cross between the creature and the vampiric Reapers from Blade II (2002). David Germain of the Associated Press noted of the crawlers, "[They] have evolved to suit their environment--eyes blind because of the darkness in which they dwell, skin slimy and gray, ears batlike to channel their super-hearing." The crawlers are sexually dimorphic, with males being completely bald, whilst females sport thick dark hair on their heads. They are nocturnal hunters which surface from their caves to hunt for prey and bring the spoils of their hunts to their caverns. See more »
The green light almost never matches the green glowsticks supposedly casting them. Several times the actors' shadows fall in the direction of the glowstick, rather than away from it. See more »

In the alternate version of the movie, Sarah escapes the cave and runs to her car. She drives down the road and stops. After vomiting out the window, she sits up and Juno, whose face is streaked with blood, is sitting right beside her. Sarah screams and the camera cuts to the credits. See more »
Shocking opening scene. The film has stunning nature shots in the beginning. The cast is brilliant, and the film is interesting from the beginning, and never gets boring. Once they're inside the cave, some scenes really feel claustrophobic - very effectively done. I was nervous for every move the characters made, not knowing what might await them around the next corner. Unlike most horror movies where I jolt in my seat with fright because of a sudden blare of music and not because of what happens, this film delivers genuine scares, even without music. Now, that's the qualities of a real scare-fest! The second half of the film more than compensates for the lack of blood in the first half, loaded with blood, guts and gore so nerve-wrecking that I honestly found it difficult to watch some of the scenes. It was just that well done! Quite terrifying, actually, and definitely not everyone's cup of tea, so be warned. It is also nice to see how the weakest character becomes the strongest. Exceptionally well made film.
