As the box will hint at, this is a 'Groundhog Day' style of movie but in the horror genre. I like this style of film as, if done properly, plot points are revealed along the way and then explained at a later point, requiring you to add the questions up in your mind and then tick them off as the explanations comes through. Mine Games did this particularly well, weaving an intriguing story but not so complicated that you lost track of what was going on.

The mine itself is really just a plot device as it doesn't seem to serve any purpose other than to provide a creepy location, but it does this quite well.

All way through I was wondering how the filmmakers were going to tie it all up in the end and I'm pleased to say I thought the ending was great - not so much that everything was resolved but enough to be satisfying and also leave you wanting to see more.

The soundtrack is stereo only which was a bit of a disappointment and there is a bit too much use of the score to try to build tension - it actually managed to get in the way and take the focus off the action on screen at times.

But all up I thought this was a great effort and well worth a watch.

Young adults, cabin in the woods, no cell phone reception, disabled vehicle, drugs, and headline about a missing girl....spin the spinner and we get vampires? zombies? slasher? Big Foot? ghosts? nope. What we get is an abandoned mine plus an old "Twilight Zone" episode. Now don't get me wrong, I love cabin in the woods tales. I also love the twist of the old Zone episode, because I get to yell "First!" when I figure out the twist before anyone else knows there is a twist. I don't want to say which episode, or compare it to other films as that would spoil it for the teen-twenty something target audience who should enjoy this film more than myself. But as far as a horror film goes, I was mostly bored with the been-there, done-that clever plot which didn't add much in ways of dialog, characters, or eye candy.

Works as an inexpensive rental.

Parental Guide: Infrequent F-bombs. Brief sex scene. No nudity.

A bunch of friends on vacation in the country discover a disused mine and find something most strange down in its depths.

It starts off in conventional fashion, pretty looking youngsters head off to a large cabin in the woods and after nearly running someone down in the road, they arrive at their destination but nothing is as it seems. The story then spins into another dimension, cribbing from better movies like Triangle and Identity, only the screenplay isn’t strong enough to make a success of it, even confusing itself in the process.

Things aren’t helped by director and co-writer Richard Gray padding out the movie to meet the required run time to call it a feature length production. In truth there just isn’t enough material here to extend beyond a one hour Twilight Zone episode, better editing and a better screenplay was definitely needed here. Gray over stretching his ambitions somewhat.

The cast of up coming Hollywood starlets give a mixed bunch of performances, while the low budget is often evident. Neither of these things, though, hurt the film as much as the aforementioned issues. There’s a modicum of interest value here for those who like the films already mentioned above, but it’s not a comfortable recommendation at all. 4/10

Pleasantly surprised with this. Very smart and cool twist. Briana Evigan from Step Up 2 and Alex Meraz from Twilight. No extras though on dvd, but it's cheap.

As a huge fan of time paradox and horror, this was a no-brainer for me. This film offers a decent attempt at the time paradox, but it could hardly be described as a 'horror' film. True, there's a little bit of slash and cut, but, it is not a scary film whatsoever. The premise of the film is nothing new, however, there is a decent twist. It's well directed, and the cast do a good enough job, although the dialogue's a bit hammy. I really hated the ending, though, and overall this film was something of a missed opportunity. With a better script and ending, it could have been a very good one.

If you want to see time travelling riddles at their very best, I recommend the vastly superior 'Triangle' and one of my all time favourite films, 'Time Crimes'.

Plot is clever and surprising. The cinematography and audio is well done. A bunch of kids take the classic summer trip to a cabin deep in the woods and do what all kids do, drink and explore. I enjoyed it, and for the price it's worth it.

CONTAINS SPOILERS

This is a repeat horror, similar to The Triangle where the same set of events happen again. It's a case of whether the characters can avoid the inevitable outcome.

First of all I thought it was going to be a standard slasher flick, similar to Friday 13th and many since, but it's not. It's more clever than that.

No extras as at all on the disc, just Chapter Selection and no audio options, so obviously produced on the cheap. I've knocked off two stars for the bare bones disc.

Recommended for horror and thriller fans alike.
