The Cave

Synopsis: Decades after a rock church in communist Romania's Carpathians caved when an expedition caused a landslide and buried everyone, Dr. Nicolai's scientific team exploring the associated Templar Knights monster fighting-legend discovers a deep, flooded cave system and hires the brothers Jack and Tyler's brilliant divers team to explore it. Another explosion traps them, after finding a mysterious parasite turning all species carnivore, and later an independently evolved predator species. Jack may be infected and turning, but Tyler sticks with him, so the group splits, hunted by the monsters, which also fly.

but it's much more effective than calcium.

Hope you got a redundancy for this Meg.

There's actually a triple redundancy.

It's the backup, a primary, and a HUD.

So you can stay submerged for what,

18, 20 hours?

Kate. Alex. This is Jack McAlister.

- Dr Jennings.

- It's a pleasure.

We read about some of

your Yucatan expeditions. Pretty amazing.

Thank you, thank you.

I understand you have a great interest

in cave biology, Mr McAIlister.

I'm starting to.

- And it's just Jack, please.

- Kathryn.

- Perhaps you want to see some samples?

- Yeah, sure.

Hey, bro.

Double-check all the rebreathers, will you?

Yeah. One in 14.

One in 14?

It's the number of cave divers that die each year.

What's this?

It's all that's left of some poor guy

they found in the mouth of the cave.

(Camera shutter clicks)

Tyler? Let's go.

So how did you hook up with these guys?

My dad had a dive business

in North Florida,

and when Jack got out of high school,

he kind of took him under his wing.

- We're all kind of like family.

- And Tyler?

He joined the business out of college.

Briggs we found table-dancing

in a club outside Calgary.


All right, everybody, listen up. Here we go.

- You all right, Strode?

- Yeah, good, man.

I've been analysing these read-outs,

and here's what we got.

There's an enormous cavern about

300 feet down, just below the cave entrance.

- Dr Nicolai has already named it Titan Hall.

- Oh, yeah, it's huge, believe me.

There's a sump... Strode?

...right about here,

which then leads

to this underwater passageway.

Look who's here.

We need to find a dry cavern

somewhere in the system

where we can set up advance base camp,

and Dr Nicolai and Kathry n

can gather their samples.

We'll be under for 12 days.

We're gonna go deep on this one.
