1.0 out of 5 stars Oh this is bad... May 26, 2009
Format:DVD
I thought there might be a chance this movie would be amusing, if not slightly reasonable given the cast.

I was wrong.

There might be some spoilers here, and for this movie I use the word lightly, but be warned.

The basic plot:

1) Crack team of commando type soldiers get assigned a special mission. Cuba us their leader.
2) An anthropologist, who works for the CIA, is the special 1-time leader. Their mission is to extract her father, who is another scientist type.
3) The go into a bunker, which used to be a tomb (1,000 feet deep). In the process, we learn that "sand can blast your skin off, so stay tight". Because if you are close to one another, obviously sand *can't* blast your skin off... for some reason.
4) The SAS type folks then find a person full of disease like boils. Of course, they treat the person and don't think that this is odd. The person is a priest, still alive, who they don't bother really containing.
5) Most of the SAS types go down a very fast moving elevator. 1 stays up. We learn that you can watch porn anywhere, as the 1 at the top level is keen to view porn. Later (by the way) he see's a hot lady on the level (which they previously cleared). So, we learn that SAS folks expect to find hot, naked ladies on levels of underground bunkers - which were previously found to have no hot naked ladies - and this is normal. Of course she eats him.
6) Back to our fearless heroes below. We learn that if you are SAS, and you see your unborn baby girl suddenly be a little girl while wondering the tombs underground corridors, you should follow her. It's a great idea. Then we learn that if she turns into a demon, that's reasonable (and she's still...cute?) I suppose SAS deal with that daily.

3.0 out of 5 stars Low Budget Straight To DVD Release June 11, 2009
Format:DVD
This movie isn't as bad as everyone is making it out to be. The problem seems to be the high expectations people are having for this film starring Cuba Gooding Jr., Ron Pearlman, and Henry Rollins.
This is standard B movie stuff. The plot is a rehash of material done in the past. The title says everything you need to know...THE DEVIL'S TOMB. If you don't like cheeseball movies that include the demonic possessed, projectile vomit and Satan then this isn't for you.
The acting was actually pretty good for a low budget film. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ron Pearlman are fine actors, and I found it entertaining watching former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins overact in his role as a Catholic Priest.
The latex monster FX (boils, demonic make-up, blood) were also pretty good, but the few CGI FX included were dated. The plot could have been better, but I give the movie three stars because it was fairly entertaining compared to the other straight to video drek coming out these days. My wife hated this film and left the room until it was over. I believe most people will react as she did to this movie, so if you don't like B movies don't even bother.
I suggest renting rather than buying. Unless you are a hardcore Ron Pearlman, Cuba Gooding Jr. or Henry Rollins fan then you probably aren't going to get a whole lot out of this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't they have anything lower than one star? April 26, 2010
Format:DVD
Absolutely the last time I watch a movie without checking out the reviews first, even if it is free. An hour and a half of my life lost, waiting for something of some value to come out of that hole of a movie - never happened. Vague notions of a plot, intermixed with dumb wandering soldiers, looking to die. Something about fallen angels, but they never could put that thought completely together. A complete waste of time.

Format:DVD
"The Devil's Tomb" is a 2009 release DVD movie with mercenaries, helicopters, war flash-backs, lots of blood, guts, brains, bones, and torn flesh hanging out and on the floors and walls, people and zombies shot with high caliber weapons at close range, electrocutions, stabbings, demons, extra-terrestrial aliens, demonic possession, extreme body mutilation, death and coming back to life when they shouldn't be able to, religious themes, computer hackers, military operations, lots of cussing, naked women, and stars Cuba Gooding Jr., Taryn Manning, Valerie Cruz, Zack Ward, Stephanie Jacobson, Ron Perlman, Sarah Ann Morris, Henry Rollins, Melanie Chapman, and others I didn't recognize. Although the film predominantly takes place underground, it was filmed in Los Angeles, California. Some call this lightweight, others say it is B-class horror, and a few pity Cuba Gooding Jr. for having been in this film. I'm going to say I didn't feel like this was a total waste of my time, and although there were no pitchforks, meat bearing grappling hooks, chainsaws, hatchets, or impalements on spears or pipes at the bottom of an elevator shaft, and there didn't seem to be as many insects as there should have been; the movie merits a second viewing for me and I'm glad I bought it. The female nudity could have been more engaging, but at least it existed - which it should in ALL `R' rated films. Violence and language have never been enough to merit an `R' rating alone, especially in contemporary America. Censorship needs to figure out how desensitized people are to violence and language and start upping the ante in the rating judgments. So for me to rank this film, based upon whether or not it delivered what I bought it and viewed it for, I'm going to say 4 stars. It needed more nightmare fodder, and more gratuitous female eye candy exploitation, but for anybody under 14 years of age, this film might be good enough as it is.
