A caving expedition goes horribly wrong, as the explorers become trapped and ultimately pursued by a strange breed of predators.
Every actress in the group is from a different country: Shauna Macdonald (Sarah) was raised in Scotland but born in Malaysia; Natalie Mendoza (Juno) comes from Hong Kong and lived all over the world; Alex Reid (Beth) was born in England; Saskia Mulder (Rebecca) is from the Netherlands; MyAnna Buring (Sam) is originally from Sweden before moving to Great Britain, and Nora-Jane Noone (Holly) comes from Ireland.
It'll be fine.
(at around 46 mins) The characters find cave drawings on the walls, supposedly drawn by the crawlers. Who are completely blind.
The creature's snarling sound can be heard at the end of the credits.
SPOILER: The endings of the US and UK versions differ. In the end, Sarah wakes up at the bottom of the cave, crawls out, and makes her way back to the car. When she is driving away, she pulls over and vomits, and when she leans back into the car, she is startled by the ghost of Juno sitting in the passenger seat. The US version cuts to the credits here. In the UK version, this apparition causes Sarah to wake up for real at the bottom of the cave, revealing her escape to be just a dream. She then has a vision of her daughter's birthday cake, which we see is just her torch. The camera backs out, the voices of the creatures can be heard again and are increasing in strength as they are closing in on her, and the movie ends. This ending was considered "too dark" for US audiences.
