Contains spoilers.

If you like stiff, uncomfortable acting and a threadbare plot, you may like this one. It's just another in the long line of cheap-o low budget horror and sci-fi flicks that have been flooding the market lately. Someone seems to have too much money on their hands, but just not quite enough to buy decent material.

Right from the opening the suck starts. We see that thousands of years ago there was a battle between the demons and the humans. The demons retreated underground... until now! They should have stayed underground. The movie starts with the usual annoying scene. The wife sees some things coming up out of the ground in her yard at night. Instead of calling for her husband, who is just upstairs, she grabs a kitchen knife and runs out into the dark. "Hello? Who's there?" And of course she's killed. By the most non threatening silly looking creatures ever to crawl up out of the ground.

And so it goes. Five years later the creatures return and start picking off the towns residents one by one. Only no one could possibly care because none of the characters is likable. Daniel Baldwin is still struggling to find his place in his brother's shadow. Brad Dourff is just an empty suit playing the briefly lived mayor doing his best to squash the rumors of people killing monsters, lest the greedy developers pull out of their plans of building condos and bringing a spark of something into the boring town. Sound familiar?

And so it goes. When the group of humans try to flee from the creatures that came up from under the ground where do they run to? Undergrounnd of course. This movie is predictable and lame. Don't waste your time.
