The Descent 8/10

Ever felt what it feels like to be stuck in a hole and have someone pound you with a hammer on your forehead countless times? Well your going to when you watch this. The hype machine was in full steam when this little gem was released overseas but I calmy refrained from watching any trailers and reading too many reviews, and it paid off.

What's it about? Well basically it's about six adrenaline junky chicks who gets stuck in a cave and have to deal with some nasty monsters that make their presence known later on. Sounds famliar right, same old 'Cave' & "Adrenaline' type movie right!.... Wrong! And a big "wrong" at that!

To start off the acting is very good. The six ladies playing the leads did a brillant job at making me care for most of them (one annoyed me). I rooted for them all the way. The screenplay was very good in terms of a horror film which keeps you engaged in the film the entire running time. And yes, there's actually a good story here. There's a great soundtrack that accompanies the film and also keeps you engaged when it kicks in. The director used this score very effectively throughout the whole film, for instance...the movie spends it's first 45 minutes mostly on character development and the girls exploring the cave. Throughout this there are a couple of boo scares with the high pitch soundtrack kicking in to give you that cheap scare when there's really no threat at all. But when the ugly's finally do pitch up and the sh*t hits the fan propperly, the director decides to use the images alone and scare the hell out of you by just keeping a low sort of toned down score playing in the background. Masterfully done imo.

Ok so once again, good story, good acting and nice soundtrack but what about the good old red stuff? Well you can start smiling if that's your cup of tea cause it's there in the buckets full...or should I rather say, trucks full.
These beasties are nasty but don't think these chicks are just there to get killed of no sir, they actually fight back against the monsters, themselves and everything else there is to survive. Things get hectic in this cave!!!

This movie made me feel like I was watching Alien for the first time back in the day, and you'll see why when you watch it. The atmosphere was brilliant and very claustrophobic.

Any gripes? Well the ending might mess with your mind a little, be it good or bad. Just make sure you get a copy of the film with the original ending, not the Americanized one. So check out for the UK copy, not too sure what the local release will have when it comes out in a years time. It's also got an excellent DTS track. There's a very dodgy CGI shot early in the film but luckilly that was the only CGI shot in the film, the rest are practical effects. Also as I've mentioned the one character annoyed me quite a bit but these are small things so not too worry too much.

If your looking for a mature thriller/horror/drama that'll scare you to bits look no further as this one will satisfy you n almost all the departments. I'm definately ordering this soon for my collection from Take 2.
