Special features include two commentaries: the first with Director Neil Marshall, and the second with Marshall and the cast; a sort-of-creepy 41-minute look behind (or in this case, beneath) the scenes; a seven-minute interview with Marshall; nine deleted/extended scenes; five minutes of outtakes (don
Viewer Warning: If you are just a little claustrophobic, this movie will cause shortness of breath and nausea. That said, join Sarah (MacDonald), Juno (Mendoza), Beth (Reid), Rebecca (Mulder), Holly (Noone), and Sam (Buring) as they embark on their annual no-holds-barred adventure, which, this year, takes them spelunking in an uncharted area of the Appalachian mountains.

Once entering the caves, the stylization turns warm, with reddish fleshtones and more earthy tones. Blacks are inky in the caves, and shadow delineation is good.

Reason #72 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love to read WSR because of the straightforward, professional equipment reviews. I also LOVE the DVD reviews. As a home theatre fanatic, I want to know the technical and quality aspects of my future purchase/rental DVDs with just a brief synopsis of what the movie is about. Other home theatre publications spend way too much space reviewing the movie itself. I will make my own judgments on the merits of the movie, what I want from my magazine is some insight on how the DVD will sound and look on my system. WSR gives the reader just that. GREAT mag! Keep up the good work!
