In short: The Strangeness (1985)

A random assortment of people gathers to survey the prospects of re-opening an old gold mine, which was closed off decades ago after a chain of unexplained deaths under the miners got too much even for a mining company.

The group soon finds itself caved in and under attacked by a stop-motion creature I hereby dub "tentacled vagina bear".

The Strangeness is a bland to okay monster movie with slightly better acting than one would expect from a no budget film from the 80s (at least until the actors are afforded to emote). At half its length, this would probably quite entertaining, as it is, it is very very slow and very very uneventful, but not completely without charm. The monster is extremely cute and there are even two or three scenes that are well-made enough to be worth watching.

I have seen much worse.
