Beneath Directed by Ben Ketai

What are people saying?

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Beneath

    I always thought the film The Descent didn't need the monsters, as being caved in is scary enough. Beneath takes that sentiment, yet wastes the potential quickly in its refusal to push the characterization past stock stereotypes. It never garners true emotion because of this, thus the horror and tension is cold and passive. Some good ideas are there (such as a psychological angle,) but it should've been much more.
