Living Hell is a science-fiction horror film released in 2008, directed by Richard Jefferies and starring Johnathon Schaech, Erica Leerhsen, James McDaniel, Terence Jay, and Jason Wiles. The movie is a joint production between Sony Pictures and UFO Films. The movie starts with a retired army general named Douglas Winters, played by James McDaniel, who is the acting director of a secret military research facility located in the Nevada desert. The facility, called Subterrestrial Base Phoenix or simply "the cave," is an underground bunker where a group of scientists is working on a top-secret project that involves artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and human augmentation.

One day, the project goes disastrously wrong, and a power surge in the facilities' computer systems unleashes a deadly virus that infects the scientists, turning them into violent, zombie-like creatures. The virus also spreads through the air, infecting anyone who comes into contact with it.

Meanwhile, outside the facility, a group of soldiers, led by Johnathon Schaech's character, Frank Sears, are sent to investigate strange activity at the base. When they arrive, they find the facility in chaos, with the scientists transformed into terrifying monsters. The soldiers quickly realize that they are fighting for their lives as they try to contain the virus and find a way out.

Erica Leerhsen's character, Dr. Woods, is one of the few scientists who managed to escape infection. She teams up with the soldiers to try to find a way to stop the virus and save humanity from being destroyed.

As the group tries to make their way out of the base, they encounter gruesome scenes of death and destruction, with the virus spreading rapidly and the monster's numbers increasing by the minute. Along the way, they also discover the sinister motivations behind the project, which involved using nanotechnology to create an army of mind-controlled soldiers.

The movie is filled with suspenseful moments, tense action scenes, and plenty of gore. The filmmakers make excellent use of the claustrophobic setting and the dark, shadowy atmosphere of the underground bunker to create a sense of terror and isolation.

The acting is generally strong, with Johnathon Schaech delivering a convincing performance as the tough, no-nonsense soldier, Frank Sears. Erica Leerhsen also shines as the plucky scientist, Dr. Woods, who manages to keep her wits about her in the face of unimaginable horror.

The special effects are well-done, with the monsters looking suitably terrifying and the gore being suitably gruesome. The filmmakers also incorporate plenty of jump scares and other horror tropes to keep the audience on the edge of their seats.

Overall, Living Hell is a solid addition to the sci-fi horror genre, with strong performances, great special effects, and plenty of scares to keep viewers entertained. It's a must-see for fans of the genre who are looking for a thrilling roller coaster ride of terror and suspense.
