Recieved this today from ScreenSelect, after you guys recommended it as a horror film with good surround.

Jeepers!

A very scary and atmospheric film with awesome DTS sound. At one point, I swear I checked behind the settee...:eek:

Thanks again chaps :thumbsup:

It was when the woman kept hearing her dead little girls' voice - the voice (whispering "mummy") came right out of the rear surrounds, right behind my head. I now have a dent in the ceiling above the settee...

Most unsettling part for me was the girl who gets stuck while crawling through the narrow passage near the start of the film. That had me s***ing myself from there onwards :rolleyes:

Clever film. Seems to tap into the whole claustraphobia thing, lost and desperate but then ups the ante with sheer horror/terror.

I saw this film a couple of nights ago - selected DTS sound, and it scared the life out of me, I had nightmares and everything... good film!

Yes, the ending was pretty sick, but I guess anything else would not have been believeable..

Yep there seemed to be other movie references scattered throughout the film as well. :D

I also think the evil little buggers were once climbers who either got lost within the cave system or decided to to squat there forever. They started breeding, evolved and tuned out to just like the inbred rednecks we see in horror flicks nowadays. :)
