Inside the hidden cavern, the brothers discover a fist-sized hole leading to an unexplored virgin passage. Ted and Brade descend into obsession, returning day after day in a relentless effort to widen the opening and gain access to the terrifying unknown passage beyond…

“There are a couple of instances which really raise the heartbeat, most notably when Ted senses that the evil presence from the cave may be lurking in his house, and here Hunt manages to nail the feeling of fear and dread to perfection. However, just what this demonic form manifests itself into may be a little bit of an anti-climax for most people watching…” Dave Wain, The Schlock Pit
