Five women who like to take risks find themselves struggling to get out of a cave in the middle of nowhere. Things get interesting when they find that they are not alone in this uncharted cavern. This is the reason why I am not going caving. this movie is scary and frighting.

As if it's not scary enough exploring caves in the dark, here comes creatures to make things worse. Awesome movie kept me on the edge of my set the hole time.

"The Descent" by Yojimbo

While potholing in an unexplored network of caves, six women are set upon by a race of subterranean nosferatu-like beasties. And well, that's it. Neil Marshall seems to have set his stall out as making a living ripping off Predator, this the follow up to the hugely enjoyable but similarly derivative Dog Soldiers. I must admit, I found the first half of the film a little tiresome; it's basically just watching a group of twenty-somethings on an adventure holiday, but when the creatures appear things definitely pick up. The use of lighting is extremely atmospheric, Marshall sticking to singular light sources as much as possible and it works very well. There are a few genuine shocks, and it's great fun watching the heroine transform from a mopey Bridget Jones-alike to such a blood-thirsty bad...

Don't watch this one in the dark!!!

Promoted as a film that pushes the envelope even further than HOSTEL; my expectations were pretty low. It turns out that Neil Marshall's science fiction/horror thriller THE DESCENT is one of the best films of the genre that I have ever seen. It is certainly the best sci-fi horror film to come along since ALIENS in 1986. This is a consistently frightening and well made film that doesn't just go for cheap scares but instead adds psychological aspects into the story and it comes out a real winner. The premise is simple. A group of female friends who love to have annual outdoor adventures, gather together to explore an excavated cave. It is a bittersweet reunion because one of the women, Sarah (Macdonald) has recently lost her husband and daughter in a tragic car accident. She is still hurtin...

The Descent - A Review, Ex Post Facto

This film holds a special place in my heart. Neil Marshall has thus far peaked with this movie. He has done what David Cronenberg hasn’t quite been able to do –though he comes close with “A History of Violence.” Neil Marshall has made a film that subtly offers the viewer a textbook session of psychoanalysis as the women delve deep and deeper into the very depths of their psyches. Their true selves arise as they probe the absolute depths of the cave system. Are the creatures they find really themselves? A rather hokey observation, I know. But that is the what Marshall gives us. Aside from the Freudian criticism, the film offers wonderful frights. It is a smart film that offers something for any true horror fan. It’s unfortunate that Marshall’s next foray into the genre was rather disappoin...
