    Default The Descent

    Has anyone seen this movie yet?

    It's actually pretty good. There is a little depth to the characters, a decent story behind everything, and the "special effects" don't hit you right out of the gate, the suspense is wonderful!

    I usually see these kind of movies purely for the "cheese factor", but found this one to be surprisingly well done.

    I believe the Descent is a book though (i forget the title), but the book is REALLY good. I don't think this movie is based on the book though.

    I thought it was okay, not as good as it was hyped up to be. Nevertheless, it was good for a few jump-out-of-your-seat scenes and it confirmed that I will never, EVER, go spelunking (or whatever you call it).

    I thought it was a little slow beginning, and a little predictable.


    *spoilers*
    I mean, who didnt see that whole relationship between the husband and that girl with the way he was treating her in the beginning?? And how in the hell was that one girl still alive AND able to talk after getting stabbed through the throat?!?!
    */spoilers*

    Anyway, I thought it was an alright horror movie but nothing to write home about...just another movie that makes up for plot holes and a poor storyline by putting in a bunch of gore...

    SVZ, I thought the movie was based on the book. Anyhow, I agree, it was a good movie but not great as some critics made it seem. Some nice jump out of your seat moments and i'm definitely not gonna go caving soon.

    By the way, there's an alternate U.K. ending.

    Is it? The book was more of a love story...

    i liked it. it wasn't a typical lame-ass Hollywood horror flick, which i HATE. i wished they used the original ending, b/c it sounds way better though.

    you totally got the claustrophobic feeling of being in those tiny tunnels... there was great tension throughout.

    Here it is, the 'original ending' (second greatest website in the world, next to gossip rocks of course!):

    I liked it a lot. Was a bit of a break from the tits and ass, teen horror movies that seems to be the usual drill. I love horror movies and may have ruined myself with viewing so many, but this definitely kept me intrigued.

    I loved the way the women fought back and all their clothes stayed on.

    Love this film!

    If you guys really liked the movie (or didn't), I really recommend the book

    The movie isn't really based on the book though.
