X was the real YIt turns out that humans were the real gollums.

Spelunking based horror movies should be easy, I'd probably freak out watching actual footage of narrow caves.

That said, I think this movie does a decent job of it. With the exception of the birthday-cake flashbacks I really enjoy the storytelling in this. It takes a long to time to get going and I appreciate that.

I didn't enjoy this as much as the first time I watched this [ed. maybe because I've seen 48 films in 22 days], but it's still a good horror film and worth the watch.
