As the world burns, the safest place is hell.

A group of disparate people find themselves trapped in an underground bunker, as catastrophic events unfold outside. As the hopelessness of their situation gradually becomes apparent, their humanity begins to dissolve; they become consumed by fear and frustration, and madness finally descends. Stylishly handled, and featuring strong performances from the ensemble cast, this is bleak, brutal, powerful genre entertainment. Highly recommended, but not for the faint of heart.
