A movie that not only entertains, and scares, but passes the Bechdel test too!

Definitely a good movie. The first thing to know is that this is a suspense movie. This movie takes a LONG time to build up. It spends a lot time crawling through tight tunnels, which was VERY suspenseful. You could feel the claustrophobia yourself. However, if you do not like suspense driven movies (like The Blair Witch Project), then this movie is not for you. But I guarantee that if you stick

I loved this movie. The only thing I didn't like was that they jipped the American audience when it came to the ending. The ending that European audience got to see was much better then the ones that we we're shown. We don't need happy endings in order to like a movie.

Amazing...This is the WOSE horror film I ever saw in my entire adult life. I knew as soon as 95%of the movie was in the dark. I had no idea what was plot...2 hours of my life wasted. I expected a trick ending...but it made so sense at all.. and I am a horror fan.!!! Rating 0 or minus if I could give it this
