The Descent (2005)

In Theatre : August 04, 2006
Director(s): Neil Marshall

In a remote mountain range, six female friends meet for their yearly adventure, a caving trip into the arteries of the earth. Leader of the trip is Juno, tough, compelling and dangerous. Along for the ride are Swedish sisters Rebecca and Sam, wild base jumper Holly, and English teacher Beth, who has reluctantly come to look after Sarah. Sarah is still recovering from a total mental breakdown after the deaths of her husband and child one year previously, and needs this trip to reclaim the life she once had.

It soon becomes clear that Sarah is not fully recovered, and that the hallucinations and memories that have dogged her for the past year are still very much hovering over her. But Juno shrugs off Beth’s worries—Sarah is her best and oldest friend, and she is going to make this work.

Together, the group makes their way through the remote cave system, enjoying the hazardous but beautiful surroundings. Then, deep inside the cave, disaster strikes when their route back to the surface is blocked by a rockfall. When they learn that Juno, always pushing herself that little bit further, has brought them to an unexplored cave, and that no one is coming to rescue them, the group starts to splinter. But left with no option, they push on through the cave, praying for another exit.

The women battle through this harsh underground world, pitting their strength and determination against each new challenge. But there is something else lurking under the earth, a race of monstrous creatures hidden from the light, devolved to perfectly live in the darkā€¦ As the women realize they have become prey, they are forced to unleash their most primal instincts to face the creatures. But, as old wounds break open and loyalties disintegrate, the women realize the horrible truth—that they have most to fear from one another.

The Descent (2005) Review by thegoldensimatar

The Descent (2005) Review by gabs1515

There's something about a chick dripping in blood, a torch in one hand, a femur in the other, and going medieval on a cave creature's ass that just gives me a hard on.The Descent is just an amazing film.   Anti...

The Descent Review by Godzilla_Rules

Today I visited two of some of my favorite horrors one in which is "The Descent". This movie came out in 2005 shortly after "The Cave". The movie is a lot like The cave in that it is about a caving expedition gone horrib...

To me, Neil Marshall's "The Descent" ranks up with "Alien", "The Blair Witch Project" and "Jaws" as of the great classic horror movies of all time. What do each of these films have in common?&nbs...
The Descent (2005) Review by BlackTequilaKiss

Over hyped? Most definitely. Still worth the time? Without question. It is easy to see the hype and think, 'I might pass this by'. Don't! It is still easily a taut and tense horror that surpasses quite a few movies of it...
