The Descent

The Descent ★★★★

The production name for this movie was 'Chicks with Picks'. I love that.

Shoulda kept it I reckon.

This is really dark, damp and claustrophobic. For a big chunk of the film I was just wishing they would get the hell out of there, but then it would end and that would be no fun at all. How conflicted I am... props to the girls for their perseverance though.. my big ass would have got stuck in the first tunnel.

The acting is really good and I was a big fan of the camera style, which could have quite easily got carried away given the setting. Instead it was calmly shot to provide a really interesting perspective of movement without the rollercoaster 'vom-inducing' handy-cam style of similar movies.

I've seen a few horror films of late and this is right up there in the top ranks. Fantastic stuff. Highly recommended.

Watched as part of the Honey, I Shrunk the Watchlist! Challenge 2020.
