Jessie's (Megan Purvis) dad has died recently, and as a last tribute to him, she wants to prove he was not just the weirdo conspiracy theorist everybody took him for but has actually stumbled upon creatures from another world in some caves - which is maybe also an effort to prove herself he deserved her trust throughout. So she embarks on a trip to said caves, but then her brother Sam (Jake Watkins) insists on tagging along, and also brings his girlfriend Joanna (Georgie Banks) and Jessie's ex Marty (Tom Taplin) along for the ride. The trip though seems to be under a bad star from hour one, as Joanna's really that sympathetic to Jessie's cause and can't quit complaining, and it might be that Marty has only agreed to join out of sympathy rather than conviction. Thing is, once they're deep enough in the system of tunnels, they have to realize there's indeed someone or something in there with them, and whatever it is doesn't enjoy the company. So suddenly our heroes find themselves on the run, and more by mistake than by design Jessie's the only one who makes it out alive and to the next ranger station - where she pretty much forces the rangers (Howard J Davey, Becca Hirani) to take her back to the caves, to save her friends - but also to prove her father right ...


Now the creature in a cave plot device isn't exactly novel, and It Came from Below doesn't exactly try to reinvent the genre trope - but within the confines of the tried and true formula the film manages to tell a very tense and suspenseful story that's fueled not so much by monster action as such but based around its characters, fallible as they are. But that's not to say the the film isn't tight in all the right places, and it really delivers in the horror department, not so much by showing but by hinting at things, and leaving things (also literally) in the dark instead of just explaining everything away - making this a rather cool cave-bound thriller.
