A caving expedition goes horribly wrong, as the explorers become trapped and ultimately pursued by a strange breed of predators.
There was only one cabin for the morning scenes. Props were switched out and the angle at which they shot Juno entering was changed to give the appearance of multiple cabins.
Juno: See you down there.
The fact that the cave system was unexplored and not the cave system that the group had planned for should have become apparent very quickly. It's unlikely that it would have matched any maps or charts Juno would have had. And the absence of any trash, footprints or signs that climbing gear had been used there would have evident. It certainly wouldn't taken experienced cave explorers much time to notice the discrepancies.
While the credits start rolling, there is a picture of all the girls on the background.
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.
