A group of students venture into the deep caves of remote Texas to locate a favorite archaeology professor who inexplicably has gone missing while searching for the Fountain of Youth. In the course of their pursuit, the group unwittingly rappels into a break in the space-time continuum, where time passes much slower than on the surface. With no hope for rescue, they descend further into the cave and uncover the most coveted urban legend in history and find themselves in the crossfire for its control.
User Reviews: Novice writer and director Mark Dennis came up with an amazing concept, but should have stopped at the writing and passed on the directing to someone more seasoned.
A director is not only responsible for camera shots, but also for directing his cast, and he failed directing C-grade actors that probably could have shown better scenes had they been directed to act better. The only convincing character, who was also the more seasoned B-grade actor was Andrew Wilson.
Granted this was a low budget film, but 3 million is not exactly small potatoes when 80% of the movie was filmed in a Texas cave. This seemed more like a 300k production. At 3m, the producers should have invested in better actors and a better director to give this film the glory it deserved.
Still very entertaining, and a great B-grade low budget adventure sci-fi, but when a novice film maker tries to wear too many hats for the extra credits to his resume, they usually miss the mark, as this film did for me.
Nevertheless, it’s a well deserved 8/10, primarily for the original concept, but should have been a 10/10 had it been produced properly.
