The Descent

The Descent ★★★★

Halloween Season Challenge - Film #30

i'm not sure why this took so many viewings to grow on me from being merely good to great, but it's definitely one of the great mid-aughts horror flicks. the way it paces itself between setting up characters/context, the first half of the cave when the danger starts, and the 2nd half of the cave when the monsters finally appear and it just becomes a full nonstop righteously photographed/edited adrenaline horror is near flawless. apparently they had like a day to film the big BRUTAL ending fight scene against the crawlers with juno & sarah and it owns harder than any fight scene i've seen out of any hollywood blockbuster production over the last ten years.
