The U.S. government has been using deep caves in Central America as bases for a special type of radio transmitter used for communicating with submaries. When the signal from one of these transmitters suddenly disappears, a team of soldiers and cave specialists is sent in to find out what happened. After some exploring deep underground, they stumble upon a tribe of albino cave dwellers who have been isolated from the rest of the world for thousands of years.

What Waits Below” is an overlooked horror movie, which obviously influenced Neil Marshall’s 2005 horror hit “The Descent”. Pretty creepy and entertaining horror flick with some suspense and effective scares. The action is fast and the infra-red stalking is a nice touch.
