The creators of Dog Soldiers have come back with what I believe is a masterpiece of a movie - The Descent.

The films plot is pretty basic - girls go cave exploring, girls get lost, girls discover monsters, girls get devoured by monsters. However, dont let this put you off, as this is unlike any horror flick I have seen.

The first half hour or so starts slow, introducing us to the characters and their friendship. Its when the girls go down to the cave when things get very interesting.

Even before the monsters appeared, I was terrified by the girls struggle through the tight narrowed caves. Being a tad claustrophobic myself, I found their journey hard to watch.

Its when the creatures make their first appearence that the film changes dramatically. We now experience tons -and I mean TONS - of gore and gresome moments.

In terms of cinematography, this film is amazing. The way the director shoots the film in this dark unpleasent place is dramatically effective, making this possibly the best technical peice of British cinema I have ever seen.

I wont give to much away, but all in all this was a very enjoyable film. See this if you love gory flicks, but also if like me you appriciate the way films are shot.

The Descent is scary and suspenseful and is also one of the best British horror films in years. It is also one of the best and most original horror films made anywhere to come along for sometime. It is such a refreshing change from the slasher films that for so long have dominated most releases in this genre. It features a mostly unknown cast, except maybe for Nora Jane Noone (Steve's Irish girlfriend on Coronation Street). With a cast of mostly women, except for the film's opening scenes, it could easily have turned into a sleaze and skin show and have offered little else. However, despite the attractive female cast, the filmmakers chose not to do this, but to offer up an increasingly humourless and tense exercise in terror. The film benefits greatly from the claustrophic cavern settings, the eerie lighting and most of all from the fantastic sound effects and realistically competent performances from the entire cast. The film may well be best seen and heard on the cinema screen, but for those looking for an excellent departure from your average horror fare, you won't find this DVD purchase or rental a waste of your time or money. Be sure to see it with someone you can hold onto!!

FINALLY!The first decent horror movie of 2005!After 6 or so months of rubbish remakes and unoriginal films such as Creep,Ring Two,Hide And Seek,House Of Wax etc, this film really was a breath of fresh air. The build up of suspense in this film is like something i have never seen before. The way the film centres around the 6 female leads and apart from the opening, no one else is in the film. In that way i found the film similar to The Blair Witch Project. There are certain moments in the film that literally make you jump out your seat. It is though extremely gory, the faint hearted should avoid watching. It also does have an ending which may confuse some people. If you want a genuinely frightening and original horror to watch,i really recommend this.

2005's "The Descent" is definitely one of the more superior horror movies that I've seen in recent years. Effortlessy getting across to the viewer the feeling of claustrophobia and terror suffered by the group of characters unfortunate enough to find themselves in a cave inhabited by inhuman, vicious crawlers very much intent on devouring all involved "The Descent" is commendable for getting almost everything right as a horror movie. Naturally, its gotten criticism for its gore content (as if that wasn't the point) but pointless, irrelevant criticisms aside: "The Descent" is the full package. There's great acting, great suspense, great make-up, great horror scenes and the sort of gore fans of films of this nature will just lap up.

After her husband and daughter die in a tragic car crash Sarah (Shauna McDonald) is convinced by friends Juno (Natalie Jackson Mendoza), Beth (Alex Reid), Rebecca (Saskia Mulder) and Sam (MyAnna Buring) to go on a caving expedition with them. Also tagging along is Juno's friend Holly (Nora-Jane Noone). Naturally, when the group of friends eventually do go underground into the cave things take an awry turn. A tunnel collapses and it becomes apparent that they aren't alone in the dark miles underground. Now they must battle for their lives against inhuman crawlers intent on devouring them all.

Nora-Jane Noone is a fantastic Irish actress, that she hasn't found immense success in her career is a travesty. Once again she's superb in what isn't exactly the meatiest role of the movie (her character's fate is sealed by a pivotal event not so soon into proceedings). She shines whenever on-screen though.

Dog Soldiers was very well executed on a low budget.
This film is superbly executed on whats probably a slightly higher budget.
It's the directors ability to take what little he has and evolve it into a mindblowing classic horror film that gives the film the 5 stars it deserves.
With so much rubbish churning out of Hollywood, it just goes to show you don't need A list actors and millions of dollars to produce an awesome horror movie. It just takes an original script, a bit more effort in the ideas department, and an excellent slice of direction.
Not for ages have I actually jumped and nearly torn my girlfriends arms off with fright (who was already in a nervous disposition less than halfway through the film). She was left disgusted with my choice of DVD but equally impressed & entertained.
There are sequences in the film which aren't too disturbing but have you glued to the screen but wanting to look away at the same time... then leave you gasping for more!!!
Highly recommended.
