Default THE DESCENT 2005 Neil Marshall

Claustrophobic?
Then you'll love this!
Another winning Brit horror from the director of Dog Soldiers.

A year after the loss of her daughter and husband in a road accident,Sarah and her friends take a caving trip.
Juno,her best friend has a few unpleasant revelations up her sleeve though.....


Any other fans of this?
I thought it was a terrific film!

What about the sequel,anyone think it was any good?

Loved this the first couple of times I saw it but repeat viewings since then have diluted my like for it. That said, the creatures look great and I love the way they move. Whatever I now think of the film it is great to see a British monster film.

one of the Brit horrors in recent years
THE DESCENT is an excellent film and the UK dvd ending is a much better ending than the US one....

Loved it at first, but a second viewing showed up some clumsiness (character development mostly). Nonetheless, a decent achievement given the budget.

The sequel was absolutely dreadful.

I agree with you
apparently the Americans thought the original UK and best ending was deemed too dark for their audiences!
Its a very good horror film but typicaly the US distributors etc wanted a 'shock' ending and not a 'downbeat one'
stupid!!
