Following on from last year's excellent The Descent and the so-so The Cave, horror now reaches new cavernous depths with the release of The Cavern, available to buy from Sony Entertainment on June 18th priced at £19.99.
Starring a talented cast of newcomers and featuring some (as it says on the press release) "genuinely terrifying moments and superb, claustrophobic cinematography that makes The Blair Witch Project look tame", The Cavern certainly looks like something worth checking out.
Read on for the full synopsis;
In the Kyzl Kum Desert in Central Asia a team of explorers learn of a newly discovered cave system and set out on an expedition to be the first to explore it. However as soon as the team begins the descent, it quickly becomes obvious that this was a secret that should have remained below the surface as members of the team find themselves caught in a desperate and terrifying fight for their lives.
In this intensely terrifying horror film, eight explorers who discover a new cave system in Central Asia find themselves trapped and hunted by an unknown presence. When the group’s two guides are mysteriously killed off, the members of the team find themselves caught in a fight for their lives as they desperately seek to escape the labyrinths of the cave.
With two key members of the team dead, the explorers desperately try to escape and find that their way out has been inexplicably sealed shut. They’re trapped inside and the only way to continue is to go deeper into the cave.
Miles beneath the surface and surrounded by labyrinths of rock, sand, mud and water, they embark on a fight for their lives hunted by an unknown presence and threatened by divisions from within their own ranks. They charge at a breakneck pace to a frightening and thoroughly startling conclusion.
