I liked it, and I'm not a big horror fan.
Keep in mind it was low budget, folks. It certainly didn't have the budget Alien had.
I kept thinking "holy crap, what speed film are they using?" because of all the scenes with nothing but the spelunkers cap lights for illumination, and it wasn't faked like you usually see. (well, mostly)
It must have been a bear to shoot in those tight spaces. I kept wondering what camera they were using in some of those tiny tunnels.
Anyone know how much of it was real, and how much was a set? Some places I could tell, but others I wasn't sure. Most of it definitely looked like a real cave, & I've been in a few.
In fact, got kinda lost in one once, and it wasn't a "tourist cave" either. Scary poop!
So I could really identify with the claustrophobic aspect of it.
