The Tunnel (2011)Review:

The Tunnel is an Australian movie built like a fake documentary. It follows a crew of journalists as they investigates on the recent disappearances of homeless people in the disaffected tunnels below the city. Like in a normal documentary, the movie mixes fake interviews from the crew members along with found footage sections.

As often with this type of movies, the start is very long and it feels like ages before the crew actually gets into the tunnel. Fortunately, the movie starts to get interesting as soon as the crew enters and discovers a fascinating and desolated series of oppressive tunnels.

The rest is a lot like you would expect it: lots of running around, torches dying, creepy noises, people who starts disappearing. In many ways, that movie reminded me of Grave Encounters, except that this one is set in underground tunnels instead of an asylum. The tension is also comparable to Grave Encounters, which is a compliment regarding how creepy the latter was.

Thereee was however one things that didn’t work for me. Let me explain. In the first half of the movie, everything happening on camera is then told a second time in the interviews…as if the audience was too stupid to understand what just happened. Once you notice it, it is impossible not to focus on it. It breaks down the action and slows down the movie by a great lot, but I guess this was the only way to make a 90 minutes movie out of it.

Anyway, this shouldn’t stop you guys from watching The Tunnel, overall a great atmospheric movie that will give you a few good scares.
