Good horror movie. I disliked the slow degredation of sanity, but to each their own. I really liked the 'cave human' idea as it could be potentially possible. Overall, no one surviving is pretty sweet. I hate when people survive a death trap.

For a second I thought I was reading the wrong review, but I had The Departed on my mind, not The Descent. Decent movie. Didn't demand my money back, not that I paid to see it, anyway.

anyone seen "the cave"?
good. don't waste your time. after reading this review, you will need to see neither the descent, nor the aforementioned crapfest.
people with varying degrees of experience in cave exploration... explore a cave. as they go into uncharted territory, shit goes horribly wrong. the director(s) build you up and biuld you up, droppping hints that everything is a result of mental degradation or insanity, or that the happenings are some kind of metaphor, conspiracy, but then, in a crushing blow, things take a turn for the shamaylan, and in both the cave and the descent, it turns out to be...
motherfucking cave-bat-asshole creatures. cave dwelling monsters of one description or another.
come the fuck on.
what was that movie? the departed? yeah. the departed. same deal. spend the whole time building up to some revelation about a cathartic metaphor or a conspiracy or god knows what, and then.... fucking ALIENS. little green goddamn men in spaceships.
the only reason the descent gets one star is for a couple examples of a DP or AD having at least BEEN to a good movie, lord forbid having ever WORKED on one before; namely, a nice bit of editing and visual composition with the girls in a narrow tunnel. the claustrophobic feeling is enhanced by the tunnel being shown only as a thin strip of light in an entirely black screen.
also, points to whoever came up with killing both family members with the flying pole.
completely unrelated to the movie really, and frankly the most startling and upsetting segment of the whole film.
so in summary, if you want torture-porn, watch SAW or hostel. who are you kidding. you like gore? go get you some lame, straightforward gore. you like psychological, suspenseful, or otherwise REAL horror, look elsewhere.
one star out of five

UK version is even more perfect then the american one.
To anyone that hated this movie, you wouldn't know a good horror film if it bit you on the ass.
