Not to be confused with the 2014 US film of the same name, this independant British film from director Christopher Smith stars Franka Potente as an office worker named Kate, who's staggering back home from a party, somewhat worse for wear from drink, and inadvertently falls asleep at the Tube station whilst waiting for the last train home.
Waking up to find herself locked in, with no obvious way out, she resorts to hiking down one of the tunnels, hoping to find a station that's still open. But, as she is soon to discover, she's not alone. It seems that something has been living in the vast network of disused service tunnels and old storage rooms beneath the old stations for many years, and needs to stock up on fresh food supplies...
Hooking up with a homelss couple who have been hiding in a disused section of one of the stations and a sanitation worker named George (Vas Blackwood), who was also captured by the strange creature, they attempt to find their way out of the nightmare maze of tunnels and get help. But with no way of knowing which way leads out, and their assailant still on the loose, escaping is going to be no easy task.
Borrowing heavily from the obscure 70's movie "Death Line", which also dealt with the subject of strange people living in disused portions of the underground system. The film unfortunately falls way short of the mark, both in terms of entertainment and scare value.
The film took far too long to get going, the creature wasn't particularly frightening, or dominating, it just looked badly made up. The films one major scare scene fell flat on its face and failed to evoke any reaction from the audience, who just sat there in silence, and overall seemed rather dull. A great pity considering the film had a lot of potential. It will probably play better on home video, but overall I was disappointed.
