The Descent is the second major film directed by Neil Marshall. If Neil keeps directing films like this one, he will be on his way to Hollywood’s A-List.
The Descent features an unknown cast:
Shauna Macdonald, Natalie Jackson Mendoza, Alex Reid, Saskia Mulder, MyAnna Buring, Nora-Jane Noone. Does that stop this from being a great film? Not at all.
The Descent is one of those movies that will make you jump (and does so quickly), and will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The premise of the story is this: A bunch of female friends reunite for extreme adventures each year. The focus in the Descent is their spelunking trip into an unnamed, unmapped cave system. Without giving away too much. Lets just say that they find a lot more adventure(hehehe) than they bargained for.
This movie surprised me greatly. It has been a long time since a movie has made me jump. The Descent does this easily, and unexpectedly.
Horror Fans need to rent this one quick. It is very good!
