Six friends embark on a caving expedition, but their fun trip turns into a nightmare when the group becomes trapped underground, and things only get worse when they realize they're not alone. Whoever – or whatever – is down there with them is out for blood, and the friends have no choice but to escape or die trying.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Empire by Dan Jolin

Brutal, bloody, terrifying, astonishing... And so tense it'll leave you aching. The most significant Brit chiller since "28 Days Later."

New York Daily News by Jack Mathews

This is one of the scariest movies featuring female heroines since the "Alien" series, and what makes it uniquely scary is where these women are -- in tunnels two miles under ground -- when they realize they are not alone.

ReelViews by James Berardinelli

This one is a creepy white-knuckle excursion into horror, where even the "boo!" moments are so well developed that they cause a jolt.
