Jack (Hauser) and his brother Tyler (Eddie Cibrian) are thrill-seeking professional cave explorers who run a team of the top divers in the world. They arrive in Romania with all the latest equipment, including a new type of scuba tank allowing a diver to remain submerged for up to 24 hours. The crack unit, which also includes Charlie (Perabo) and Buchanan (Chestnut) immediately begins their exploration. But what they find deep inside the caves is not just a a new eco-system, but an entirely new species altogether...

Critics Consensus: Despite its stylized and impressive sets, this horror-monster movie mish-mash suffers from endless cliches and wildly implausible plotlines.

A generic duffer that's as exciting as a hole in the ground.

Hectic slasher movie has lots of scares, little plot.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the movie, short on plot, soon seems like a prolonged jump scene: characters crawl, trudge, and fight their way through dark tunnels, some filled with skulls. The monsters are initially unreadable shapes that eventually show themselves as flying-swimming-spelunking creatures. Violence can be graphic, including bloody penetrations, explosions, and draggings. Characters avoid cursing outright, but do call each other names ("jackass," for example). The film includes tense scenes -- creatures lurking in the dark, close quarters and characters screaming -- that might trouble younger viewers.
