The Descent

The Descent ★★★★½

A Descent into a place where we are force out of our comfort zones. The mixture of found footage with the movie helps the movie not only feel ground it, but give us an idea of the environment while wrapping it in dark mysticism. The more the characters become lost, the more they become less willing to trust one another. Making us wonder if primal distrust between characters is what is creating the harsh environment. I find it very unique how there is tension set up with the dynamics between characters before they get wrapped up in a fight for the soul to escape darkness. It is a sick twisted story about the youth and the connections among the characters slowly drift away. Not being able to save what once brought you comfort. Because what once brought you comfort, only brings bitterness now. Sometimes these bittersweet moments in life can become a horrific experience.
