Movie Info

Cuba Gooding, Jr., Ron Perlman, and Ray Winstone star in this horror thriller following a team of mercenaries on a mission to rescue a scientist from an underground lab, where they encounter an ancient evil that threatens to overtake mankind should it find its way to the surface. Contracted to rescue a scientist (Perlman) who was trapped under the Middle East desert while researching a profound archaeological discovery, fearless war veteran Mack (Gooding, Jr.) and his squad of elite U.S. mercenaries descend far beneath the surface with no clue of the horrors that await them below. Deep beneath these desert sands dwells a thousand year old secret that's not of this earth. Guided by a mysterious priest (Henry Rollins), Mack and his team discover that some secrets are best left buried when they reach the underground laboratory and all hell breaks loose.more

Audience Reviews for The Devil's Tomb

Let me be clear. I'm giving this one star for Perlman and Winstone, and them *only*. Even Gooding, Jr. falls flat. Hardly his fault, though, seeing as the script was a gigantic mess and the plot even more so. Copious amounts of gore and "Gotcha!" moments won't save a film. *Especially* not this one. [shudder] Avoid at all costs.

Checked it out for the quality of actors in a straight to video horror. A few good make up effects but mostly..... meh.

I like Cuba Gooding Jr, I like Ron Perlman, I like "B" horror films, but I did not like this. Not one bit. Why is it that some horror films with religious overtones (an often good genre, especially when preventing hell from opening) feel the need to pile on so much made up dogma and BS? It never holds up (even assuming suspension of disbelief) and it always detracts from the story. And in a case like this when it IS the story, it leaves you with nothing but a pile of absolute rubbish.
