| Good suspense and intrigue motion picture
The movie concerns a bunch of adolescents formed by Thora Birch , Desmond Harrington , Kiera Knightley and others who stake to shelter in a bunker .

They're closed up and then terrible events originate .

Although the happening develops itself in locked place the film is not tiring .

The yarn mingles emotions , violence , shocks , thriller , the suspense doesn't fail and that's why it's bemusing and isn't boring .

Acting by Thora Birch is awesome , she was paid a high salary due to her recent acclaimed role in American Beauty (1998) . The beautiful and very young Kiera Knightley -she war 15 when this movie was shot- is ready as a future main star (Pirates del Caribbean, curse of the black pearl) and even she has a brief first nude scene . And Desmond Harrington (Ghost ship) is cool .

The film has relation to last group of English movies developed in shut and strange stages as the Bunkers or trenches , for example : ¨Deathwatch¨ and ¨the Bunker¨.

The movie has a pretty twisted plot and the final storyline has extraordinary and fascinating surprises. The motion pictture was well directed by Nick Hamm (Killing Bono , Godsend , Talk of angels) . Flick will appeal mystery and emotions fans.

Rating: 6/10 Good . Well worth watching
