This monster movie involves the reopening of a Utah silver mine which had been closed for nearly 70 years after a catastrophic cave-in, the circumstances of which remain one of the nearby town's most legendary mysteries. When attempts are made to explore the mine shaft, the investigating party never returns. It seems the mine's collapse had served to seal in a nest of weird, multi-tentacled, bloodsucking creatures -- which are now free to seek new prey on the outskirts of town. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The director keeps the creatures off-camera for most of the film, but when they do show up they're at once ridiculous and brilliant: rubbery, king crab-like things..."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"At best, it's a so-so horror pic."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Hey, we weren't all that demanding of our low-budget monster movies in 1981."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Click to read the review."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, About.com
"This is a fairly typical, low-rent, low-imagination horror movie of the early 1980s."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Obscure and unknown. Deservedly so."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
