In Beneath, a coal miner (Jeff Fahey) about to retire picks the wrong time to finally follow the old “bring your daughter to work day” concept. When the young woman (Kelly Noonan) joins dad and his mining crew, she’s underground when a collapse traps them all hundreds of feet below — sorry, beneath the surface.
What happens next looks like some combination of The Descent and The Thing, but there are glimmers that this may be more of a psychological horror than a monster movie. Regardless, the first Beneath trailer is pretty damn good. Watch the trailer below.
Honestly, the movie gets points just for not being found-footage. What a weird shame, that a “normal” movie feels fresh in this context. But feelings about found footage have nothing to do with this film, which definitely looks like it is worth a watch.
Beneath opens on VOD/Digital platforms on June 27, and hits select theaters on July 25. Ben Ketai directed from a script by Patrick Doody and Chris Valenziano.
In this creepy and claustrophobic horror thriller a deadly, supernatural force is unleashed underground with a crew of trapped coal miners and a female environmentalist who must fight to survive.
