The Descent (2005) Review for Halloween Horror Fest

Here’s reblog number two of my “Mini-Neil Marshall Weekend”. I reblogged his film Dog Soldiers yesterday, which was okay, but The Descent is easily one of the better horror films from recent years & made my list that I posted on Thursday of My Top Ten Horror Movies Of The 21st Century.

Happy Halloween Eve, everyone! 🙂

    • Aww. That’s too bad. I think the atmosphere is fantastic! It made me truly claustrophobic. And the tragedy in the beginning was absolutely heartbreaking. I do know the American ending SUCKED big time, though. So glad I saw the original British ending as I think the movie would’ve been ruined had I seen the other first…
