This week’s Movie Monday trailer clip, Underground, came to my attention thanks to @NewHorrorFilm following me on Twitter.
It reminds me of a cross between C.H.U.D. and the Descent…except these underground beasties live in an underground military bunker. I can’t quite discern from the trailer how the group of friends gets stuck there. Near as I can tell it looks like a bar fight gone awry. I’m not sure I buy that premise, but for the sake of argument (or not arguing as the case may be) I’ll go with it.
It could be a fun movie. “Most anticipated horror film experience of 2010” might be taking it too far, though. (As per it’s YouTube description.)
The movie’s website will launch December 1, 2009. It dares all who visit it now to check back then to see what lurks beneath the ground. (Zombies right? Just kidding!)
One thing I will give it credit for…the trailer has a couple wicked and disturbing images. Helps to counteract the strong “B” feeling vibe it gives off thanks to some of the noticeably apparent bad acting. But that’s also why I decided to feature it –there’s some promise it might be scary. Or scary enough to take you away from your troubles for an hour and twenty minutes. (Or whatever it’s running time may be.)
