With The Cave set for release in the US and UK on August 26th, hopes are high for another effective horror film that follows a similar theme (although The Cave was first in production) to the recent UK hit, The Descent.
The recent trailer and TV spots certainly look pretty good, and now the new poster has emerged which is pretty cool, with five torch lights failing to throw too much illumination into the cave’s Geiger-esque shadows.
The film (official tagline: There are places man was never meant to go) was directed by Bruce Hunt and stars Cole Hauser, Morris Chestnut, Eddie Cibrian, Daniel Dae Kim, Rick Ravanello and Piper Perabo.
Hopefully, we'll be able to bring you our review of The Cave later this week.
Visit the official site at www.sonypictures.com/ to see the trailer, which admittedly, looks pretty damn fine with some great footage of cave diving, little squiggly Deadly Spawn creatures, and glimpses of a far more vicous beast...
The film takes place deep in the Romanian forest, where a team of scientists stumble upon the ruins of a 13th century Abbey built over the entrance to a giant underground cave system.
Local biologists believe the cave could be home to an undiscovered eco-system, so they hire a group of American cave-explorers to help them investigate its depths including Jack (Cole Hauser) and his brother Tyler (Eddie Cibrian).
After arriving in Romania with all the latest equipment, including a new type of scuba tank allowing a diver to remain submerged for up to 24 hours, the crack unit, which also includes Charlie (Piper Perabo) and Buchanan (Morris Chestnut), immediately begin their exploration. But what they find deep inside the caves is not just a new eco-system, but an entirely new species altogether.
