Watch The Descent - Alternative Versions.
If nightmare inducing horror is not your bag then the less you know
about The Descent the better. Geordie writer-director Neil Marshall has
delivered an accomplished, well acted, out and out horror movie that
comes as much of a pleasant surprise as his first major feature Dog
Soldiers did back in 2002. Shot in a mere 7 weeks The Descent sees a
sextet of undeniably attractive action women leaping headfirst into an
Appalachian potholing adventure that goes wrong so quickly you are left
wondering if any one of them will survive, let alone ever see daylight
There are comparisons to be drawn to Marshall's 'Soldiers of course -
again the story is stark and wonderfully economic. Again there is group
of six people, predominantly one sex accompanied with a lurking,
ominous threat and again there are more nods to popular film culture
than you probably realise. The Descent however has a sense of humour
that is suitably pitch black.
Long before the cave appears we play witness to a traumatic event that
underlies the plot and serves to both unite and tear apart
relationships in equal measure. Mostly affected are fragile Sarah and
physically strong Juno, an adrenaline junkie who leads the group
further and further beneath the ground. No time is wasted in recreating
the primal feel of crawling through tunnels with hard hats scraping the
dust from the rocks, choking and inducing paranoia all the way as it
lingers in the stale, torchlit air. It's here Marshall gets a little
inventive. Playing with various different lighting techniques our
heroines become colour coded through scenes via glow-sticks,
flashlights and video camera. Sounds echo when visuals are briefly lost
and deliciously bone crunching they are too. Events escalate quickly
and the whole ride becomes what can only be described as a non-stop
relentless assault on the senses that will demand repeated viewing.
The only thing that will ruin this movie for you is word of mouth,
which ironically is exactly what this film will need to become
commercially viable. But the less you know, the more you will enjoy it.
Have fun spotting references to Carrie and Apocalypse Now by all means,
but don't be fooled into thinking this is a mere standard entry into
the much saturated genre-movie staple. The Descent will rank as one of
the most unashamedly terrifying British films ever made. It was made by
people that love good cinema, and it shows. The Descent was made before
The Cave, and now has an alternate ending for new audiences.
