Brian T. Jaynes is the director of “Humans vs. Zombies”, one of those low-budget zombie movies that show up in the marketplace about a dozen a day. Yeah, there are a lot of them. “Humans vs. Zombies” fell somewhere in the middle between bad and okay, but it (mostly) got the job done. Jaynes’ latest is the subterranean thriller “The Underneath”, which kinda looks like a distant cousin of “The Descent” but with just two people instead of a handful of victims — er, I mean, characters.
Check out the first teaser trailer for “The Underneath”. I hate tight spaces, even more so than I hate Found Footage movies (elements of which this one seems to have a little bit off toward the end of the trailer there), and this one gave me the willies.
A young newlywed couple find themselves trapped in a network of underground caves. With her husband (Holt Boggs) injured, the new bride (Natalie Wilemon) is forced to find her way back to the surface in order to save his life. In the process, they discover a terrifying truth about the “underneath”, that they are not alone.
Something evil is hunting them…
Starring Holt Boggs, Natalie Wilemon, and Larry Jack Dotson.
“The Underneath” gets unearthed on DVD/Blu-Ray, VoD, and Pay-Per-View this September.
