- Sanctum (2011) is a movie about cave divers.
It is based on the story of an Australian cave diver, Andrew Wight, who is also a close friend to director James Cameron.
Definitely impressive 3D pictures of underwater caves and the Sotano de la Golondrinas.
- The Cave (2005) a horror b-movie about cave divers in a Romanian cave.
There is a legend about Templar Knights fighting monsters and a treasure.
Adventure seekers follow the legend and find a parasite which turns all species into vampire like creatures.
More or less annoying plot and even the cave looks often like a mine.
- The Descent (2005)
Not a b-movie, but the plot is nevertheless annoingly stupid.
At least in the first part there are fine shots of caves.
The second part is dark and ugly, and definitely filmed in studio.
Nevertheless a good rating at IMDB.
- The Descent 2 (2009)
Poor rating at IMDB.
Never had the nerve to see it.
- The Clan of the Cave Bear (1986)
This is the film to the famous book of the same name by Jean M. Auel.
The French archaeologist describes the live of Ayla, a Homo erectus orphan girl which is raised by a clan of Homo neanderthals.
The book is extremely interesting and describes a lot of archaeologic knowledge about our anchestors.
The film concentrates on the basic story.
Ayla is played by Daryl Hannah and we guess its poor rating is a result of the annoyance of male viewers about the lack of sexy scenes.
We find this movie rather enjoyable.
- Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010)
German title: Die Höhle der vergessenen Träume.
A documentary filmed by the German filmmaker Werner Herzog (Fitzcarraldo, The Bear) in 3D.
He was allowed to film inside the Chauvet caves in the Ardeche valley in Southern France.
Definitely the cave related movie highlight of 2010!
And the only way to see this beautiful cave, which is closed to the public.
- Journey Into Amazing Caves (2001)
An IMAX documentary about caves and caving.
Very good plot, exotic caves, exxtremly good visual quality.
The DVD is not able to show the movie in an adequate way.
We recommend the BlueRay disc or the IMAX cinema next to you!
- Mysteries Underground (2010)
A cave documentary by the National Geographic Society.
Definitely entertaining, with beautiful shots of caves.
- World's Biggest Cave (2011)
This is the cave documentary by the National Geographic Society about the cave discovery by British cavers in Vietnam.
This cave is named

While the title is a little bold, the cave is definitely a highlight, and the photography has the high standard we are used to from the National Geographic Society.
- Nature Wonders Dachstein Caves (2008)
A short documentary (10 minutes) of the Dachstein Caves in Austria.
The caves are impressive, but this documentary is interesting only for people who intend to go there and want some idea what to expect.

A one hour documentary on caves, excelent production, fine pictures.
It shows an impressive selection of extraordinary and beautiful caves.
- Ace in the Hole ()

But the main event is located at the Marabar Caves, a series of artificial cave temples.
