Sort of reminds me of The Cave, which I only recently just saw. Looks interesting.
There is a method to my madness. That method is in and of itself quite mad, but it is method nonetheless.

The Cave was alright, I liked it. Not great or anywhere near as scary as previews made it out to be, but what movie is? It scored extra points with me for the ending. And yeah, if The Descent is made by the same people who worked on Saw and Hostel you know it'll at least be worth seeing for shock value.

I love the Descent; it's such a merciless bitch of a horror.

The Cave, on the other hand, blew.

SPOILERS
Mine don't make it out of the cave either.

I'm not sure what version I have, probably the UK.

I really don't think it was that scary at all. Watched it full effect, dark room, night, basement, the whole kit and kaboodle. Nothing, it didn't even have a lasting impact from the horror.

I love how every modern American attempt at horror degenerates into a competition of who can show the most people being dissected, raped, eaten, or bludgeoned to death. 'Cause that's, yeah, not scary. More often than not, it's simply gross.

And no, I haven't seen it. Just felt like venting a bit of my frustration over the state of horror films these days. Wanna see a good one? Watch Audition. Yes, it's subtitled, shut up. Rent it, watch it, and proceed developing an insane paranoia about quiet, sheepish women.

To clarify, The Descent is not an American movie. I believe it was shot in the US and features some American actors, but it's a UK movie. Definitely worth your time. It's also a great example of what you can do with a relatively small budget.

I felt that the promotional campaign really did the movie a disservice. They made it out to be a movie similar to Hostel and the Saw movies. It's not. In reality they only share the same distributor and that's only for the US release. I haven't seen Hostel but I can tell you this, The Descent is a way way way smarter movie then Saw was (oh my god, what a dumb movie.)

As far as I know, the American and UK releases are identical, except they cut out the very very last scene in the US release. I'm not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, that scene made me mad. On the other, I rather watch the movie as it was intended.

What! That was the single greatest ending to a horror movie EVER!

And no, I haven't seen it.
That much is obvious. As Bonemouse said, the Descent really isn't one of those movies. Not that I mind those kind of movies by any means, but this isn't one of them.

I get the distinct feeling that people are looking for ways to hand me my ass today. Oh well. Is the film anything like High Tension? 'Cause that was actually a good flick.
