* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Based on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XE5CuKJxOsc trailer]] for the indie film, many dislike how it seems to be missing the points that made the original pasta so terrifying. For starters [[spoiler: the creature is up and foremost when many note the thing that made it so scary in the first place was the fact that we ''[[NothingIsScarier don't]]'' get to see what it is or have it described to us. Then there's the fact that Ted apparently gets stuck in the pass at some point in the movie, something that doesn't happen in the pasta itself, which many feel like the developers of the movie are using as a cheap scare tactic. Then there's the monster apparently following Ted out of the cave and back to his house...]]

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Considering it was a {{Creepypasta}} before {{Creepypasta}}s were a thing, it, unfortunately, uses a lot of tropes that would become cliches of the genre. The protagonist are incredibly [[GenreBlindness Genre Blind]], becoming obsessed with a place/thing that they ''know'' is dangerous but keep poking at anyways, [[spoiler: ritualistic drawings in the cave itself]], the protagonist [[spoiler: having their mental state affected by the cave]] and [[spoiler: the protagonist ''returning'' to the dangerous area/monster in hopes of getting some closure and/or killing whatever it is.]] However, [[DownplayedTrope many have noted it still holds up better than a lot of later creepypastas]], thanks to the use of pictures and relying on PrimalFear of {{Claustrophobia}} for most of the story than [[spoiler: the creature itself]].
