I'll admit that this is a new title to me, but the blurb across the top of the DVD artwork should be enough to get you interested; 'from the director of Mum and Dad'. If you have seen that flick then you'll know that director Steven Sheil is a talent to look out for. It may not have been a wholly original flick, but it was very well done. Dead Mine is his new film, and eOne will be releasing it on DVD, in the UK, on May 13th. Judging from the trailer it looks like we are getting a cross between The Descent and Outpost, with a big old Samurai dude thrown in for good measure. Looks like fun!
