The Dark Lurking trailer

Something has gone terribly wrong at outpost 30, a secret international research facility one mile beneath a remote part of the Earth's surface. All communications are gone, all means of escape destroyed and an extremely dangerous horde of creatures is on the loose. For eight survivors, their one possible escape route is through 13 levels of terror that will lead them to the surface.

The Dark Lurking is an adrenaline-fuelled action thriller in the tradition of such horror classics as Aliens and The Evil Dead and was shot entirely in Queensland.

The $200,000 film, by debutante filmmaker Greg Connors, has just been picked up by Cinema Epoch for North American distribution and will be released next month.
