Shocktober #26 – The Descent

The Descent UK Quad PosterThe Descent
Release Date: 2007
Starring:Shauna Macdonald, Natalie Mendoza, Alex Reid
Director: Neil Marshall
Rated R

Hailing from the UK, The Descent, was a smash hit and quickly became a cult favorite in the United States. It’s centered around a band of friends who go on a camping trip where they descend into a cave. This cave is charted according to their sporty group leader. What they find in the cave is unknown. The cave is inhabited by something not of this world and the girls find out quickly that there is no escape.

Surpisingly creepy, throroughly intense, this film will put you right on the edge of your seat. It goes for some cheap scares, but the thrill of them cave diving and not know where the tunnels lead or if they can escape is intense. There is such emotion in each character you practically love all of them. They are built so well that you feel sorry for some, but you want the adventure to continue. Wonderfully acted, beautifully directed, some of the scenes are breathtaking and you won’t take your eyes off of The Descent.
