Thirty years ago, in the Carpathians Mountains of Romania, a group of explorers blows an entrance to a cave hidden under a church, but the explosion causes a landslide and they become trapped inside. In the present days, the expedition leaded by Dr. Nicolai and his assistant, Dr. Kathryn are exploring the place and they find the access through an underwater river, requesting the experienced cave divers team leaded by Jack. Dr. Nicolai discovers that, in accordance with the local legend, the church was built to seal the cave as a display of God's protective power, and that Templar Knights entered the cave to fight winged demons. When the group reaches a cave though a tunnel one mile below and three miles in, a creature attacks one of the members and his breathing apparatus explodes, collapsing the tunnel and trapping the group in the cave. Soon they realize that they are the rescue team and they have to find an exit to survive from the attack of the monsters.
There are places man was never meant to go.

- Filmed mainly in Romania, a country with over 12,000 registered caves.
The film claims to have some basis in truth because new micro-ecologies have been discovered in deep caves, especially in Romania. According to film consultant Dr. Christi Lascu (acclaimed speleologist and Romanian editor of National Geographic magazine), 35 brand new species were found in the Movila Caves in the late-1980s. Among the species found was a 10cm centipede with a poisonous bite. There was nothing the size of the creature in the movie, but in theory there is not a limit for the size of animals living down there.
Andrew Mason, one of the film's producers, says they hired some of the world's greatest cave divers as consultants in order to keep the movie as technically plausible as possible.
The actors sometimes had to spend up to 10 - 12 hours a day in a wetsuit, constantly in and out of the water.
A 750,000 gallon tank was created to shoot underwater photography.
