Ein riesiges Loch klafft im Boden der wüsten Einöde. Darin
arbeiten unzählige Maschinen und Hände. Eine Diamantenmine. Doch in den Tiefen
des Bergwerkes finden sich noch ganz andere Relikte…
Als Henry Reston zu einem sensationellen Fund in die Mine
gerufen wird, hat er keine Ahnung, was die Arbeiter dort wirklich zu Tage geschaufelt
haben. Und während er noch mit seinen ganz eigenen Ängsten zu kämpfen hat,
beginnt der Horror unter der Erde sich langsam zu verbreiten.
Schon bald überfluten bluthungrige Untote die Mine und
verwandeln den Forschungstrip in einen grauenhaften Alptraum, in dem er um
nichts weniger als sein Leben kämpfen muss. Doch in der engen,
nervenzerfressenden Dunkelheit wird sich für Reston schnell heraus stellen,
dass die Untoten nicht das Schlimmste sind, dass er hier unten antreffen muss…
