Trailer & Poster for Creature Flick Under Ground
It seems I’ve been getting a lot of news lately about upcoming creature flicks, and I say keep bringing them on!! I love a good creature flick and UNDER GROUND looks pretty promising. Made in 2010, UNDER GROUND still hasn’t found a distributor, but it looks like that might soon change. Directed by Rafael Eisenman and starring Christine Evangelista, Ross Thomas and Sofia Pernas, UNDER GROUND (sometimes written as one word, UNDERGROUND) looks like a version of THE DESCENT if the creatures were the result of a failed military experiment. Here’s the plot crunch:
Where there is no light…evil grows.
At an abandoned military base a rave party cranks. Matt Wilcox and his buddy Storm have just returned from Iraq. Matt’s old friends are having a mini-reunion to welcome home the war veterans. The drinks are flowing, the music is cranking, Matt and his girlfriend Myra are having a great time. Storm gets caught in the middle of a fight with local gang members. Guns are pulled. Matt yanks Myra, Storm, and all their friends into a doorway to escape the danger. Matt and friends have just entered a locked underground facility. Not all of them will return.
Matt and his friends wait until the rave party has ended. They try to exit their hiding place. The door is locked. Storm discovers they are in a standard military bunker. Matt has seen the schematics. He knows there is an exit on the other side of the facility. He leads the reluctant group down into the bowels of the bunker.
As the darkness thickens and tension grows, the kids are getting gruesomely killed one by one. The group has found itself at the mercy of creatures genetically created by the military to be expendable in battle, made to have integral weapons to be better able to disentomb enemy bunkers and destroy the enemies within. These creatures are vicious Troglomorphs (“Trogs”), surviving on animal and human flesh when it comes into their lair. The Trogs were left behind when the base closed, a forgotten black project. In the darkness they are Matt and his friends’ worst nightmares.
Now Matt, Myra, Storm, and their friends are the prey in a game of survival. With little more than a flashlight and pocketknife, Matt and Storm will be expected to save their friends as they battle these Trogs created to destroy their enemies with bloody prejudice. Though Matt and Storm fought in Iraq, they never knew real fear until they went underground.
Doesn’t sound too bad does it? Maybe not 100% original, but it still sounds pretty fun. Now check out the trailer:
Sure the creatures look very DESCENT-ish, but it also looks like there might be some good gore in this one. I’ll keep my eye on this one.
