Movie Tip #43 - The Descent

Director: Neil Marshall

Starring: Shauna MacDonald, Natalie Jackson Mendoza, Karen Mulder, Alex Reid, MyAnna Buring, Nora-Jane Noone

Description: A woman (Shauna MacDonald) goes on vacation with her family and her husband and her daughter encounter a tragic accident. One year later she goes hiking with her friends and they get trapped in the cave. With a lack of supply, they struggle to survive and they meet strange blood thirsty creatures.

Review: I remember seeing this film for the first time. Not knowing what to expect. It later turned out to be one of the scariest movies I've ever seen. Being trapped in a cave is scary enough for me, but the fact that there are weird, creepy monsters in the cave makes it even more terrifying. A good horror movie builds up the tension, like "Halloween" and "Jaws". That's where most modern horror movies go wrong. But not "The Descent". You get a bit of a claustrophobic feeling once the girls enter the cave, but the real scare creeps up on you later in the film. Especially that one scene with the camera, where we get to see one of the creatures for the first time. An unexpected scare, you never see it coming. "The Descent" is an exceptional good film, especially on Halloween...
