The opening scene is of a man lying in the underground darkness half-buried in muck. A light comes on briefly and then he is plunged back into total darkness. As he slowly regains consciousness, he begins to extract himself from the muck. The light continues to snap on and off as we begin to see more of his surroundings. With much effort he finally struggles to his feet and tries to find his way out the maze of machinery he is surrounded by. He climbs upwards and is faced by mysterious, complex mechanisms that spring to life if manipulated correctly. There is no dialogue. He seems to be at a total loss as to how he got there.
A captivating and compelling open sequence. Some "B" SciFi movies (like Cube) are so cool. Any ideas on this one?
