The Descent

The Descent ★★★★½

What You Do Know Can Hurt You – October 2017 Rewatches

It looks as though I'm going to have to put The Descent on the same yearly rewatch around Halloween plan as I have Prince of Darkness (tonight!) and The Shining.

It also struck me watching this just what a similar dynamic they tried to drum up for The Ritual, failing miserably in almost every way. Don't watch The Ritual, by the way, because it's shit.

I do still think that Neil Marshall could have got two brilliant films out of this though - the adventure thriller at the start and the horror bit at the end. Split them off into two, double their length and everyone's happy. Well, I would be, I don't care about anyone else.
