Synopsis

An Iron Age village is burdened with a terrible curse - every few years eight youths are captured by foreign soldiers and sacrificed to a bloodthirsty monster, the Minotaur. Taken to a land far away, the youths are presented to a powerful king before being cast down into the depths of the Labyrinth to meet their fate.

Driven by his love who was lost in a previous sacrifice, Theo disobeys his father's commands and joins the sacrifice with the intention of killing the beast. On arrival at the palace Theo is seduced by a mysterious princess, who promises him love if he can protect her from the King, her brother.

Thrown into the depths of the maze, Theo and his friends come face to face with the true horror of their plight, as the terrifying Minotaur hunts them down one by one and mercilessly devours them.

Based on the ancient Greek myth of 'Theseus and the Minotaur', the film is a classic adventure horror story set in 1400 BC.
