In Darkness We Fall (La Cueva) Review (2014)


In Darkness We Fall (aka La Cueva) is Spanish found footage horror about cave exploration.

The Story

In Darkness We Fall has very simple story. Five friends go to camping trip near the beach. Soon they discover a cave entrance, which they decide to explore.  Soon they are faced with life threatening nightmare.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

In Darkness We Fall (aka La Cueva) is not an original movie..  There are already handful of cave horror that are out there, and the movie doesn’t really stand out from the rest.  But it is still entertaining movie.

This movie is entertaining because of strong acting and it is executed in a very realistic way.  Five friends decided to explore a cave but soon they found themselves lost in the confusing maze of the cave.  When you are stuck in a cave for few days, your friendship is tested and your survival instinct takes over.  What happened inside the cave seems very realistic and something that can happen in real life.

The movie is shot in found footage style and it is well done, except for the ending. Last few minuets at the end of the movie is not shot in found footage style. It didn’t really make sense to me why they decided to break out of found footage film style at the end.

The pace of the movie is very good.  It took some time for them to start exploring the cave, but once they are in the cave, you find yourself in the edge of your seat until end of the movie.  You are glue to the screen trying to figure out what is going to happened to them.  The movie does get very intense and violent.

If you like cave horror, also check out the movie called “Cave” (2016)
