MV5BMjA5NzQ1NTgwNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNjUxMzUzMw@@__V1_SX214_Review (Spoils): Sarah (Shauna Macdonald) comes home from white water rafting with her family and they all die in the accident but her. A year later she tries to regroup her life with her female friends and they go caving. Six young beautiful women go into the booze to drink and enjoy nature. Their main guide Juno (Natalie Mendoza) does not bring the map and leads them all into a death trap by accident (by the way she was screwing with Sarah’s husband). The ladies become trapped in the caves and to top it off they are slowly being hunted one by one by a group of pale vampire man beasts that live in the caves.

We got blood in this one, nasty bites, a really brutal broken leg, a climbing hook through the head, some ripping and eating of innards. The film has some beautiful scenery (the ladies and the nature); the bonding is well done between the ladies and the movie does build well on suspense.

Rating: I really enjoyed this film; this is what horror movies are to be about. Not teenage crap over and over again. This was fresh and different and it did not need the nudity for it to work. Bring out the blood and the babes for this one!

  1. Great post, this is one of my favourite horror films.

  2. Freedeath

    The UK version has an extra minute of footage at the end of the film that changes the outcome, and makes an already excellent film even better.
