Yeah, maybe but usually no one copies a movie unless it is a hit. It just sounds like bad business to make a copy before knowing how the original will do. BTW, it's no big deal finding out what's going into production today, just check the IMDB.

If I recall, in the commentary on the R2 dvd, Neil and technical crew describe planning the lighting scheme and preproduction of the script a full two years before primary filming.

Is it so hard to believe there exist tight groups of sport enthusiast women? Biking, running, climbing, etc. This describes one of my older sisters. They could've done any sort of exercise, they just happened to pick caving.

I thought the slow buildup, the brief backstories gave us just enough to care about what happens later on. The atmosphere, music, and filming in the tight quarters gave me that slightly claustrophic feeling that added to the horror...something The Cave didn't. I also like the original UK ending. Sarah with the insane thought of sharing her daughter's brithday as we're left with an assumption.


Hoping Lionsgate comes around to the HD DVD side and not just releases this on Blu Ray. Will probably resort to hoping for an overseas release.

Actually, 'The Descent' was first shown at the "Brussels International Festival of Fantasy Films" on 11 March 2005.

BTW, I wish I had been "fooled" into seeing 'The Descent' because I wasted my time watching "The Cave". The Cave was a very lame movie, too much CGI. Just wondering what "Cave" buzz was there to steal? That it was a horrible movie?

It's fine that you didn't like "The Descent", but your diatribe of it is unnecessary.

Now we know for a fact that there no possibility that The Descent is a rip off of The Cave w/ a premiere much earlier than the UK one.

Seriously, there is an old saying, "there is NO such thing as an original piece of art."
If you stop to consider that, it is true.

Oh I'm sure there was a test screening of The Cave even before that, but really, it's pointless.

There was a trailer of The Cave out at least 6 months prior to its release as well. At that point it looked cool. At that point it was unique. The CGI was the only thing The Cave had going for it and The Descent didn't even have that.

Imagine The Cave with guys in elf suits instead of CGI monsters and that's The Descent.

The film was not remotely scary. I mean, we've established that these things can't see, even though they react to light. but apparently they can't smell or hear either because one of them was 2" away from a girl who sat there quivering and whimpering as it strolled on by. I mean, come on folks, HONESTLY!

Why is it pointless? Your the one who said it was a rip off of the Cave. We are just pointing out the fact that it was released first and most likely in production before the Cave. There aren't facts that say The Cave was in production first nor was it shelved and then released. It would have been pointless if you hadn't brought it up first.

Well I just watched the Region 4 Spanish (was in English though) NTSC version of the Descent and it was the real UK version (with the real ending)...absolutely awesome, brutal, nerve-racking movie...I thought it was excellent.

Fett: we get your point, but the idea that they ripped the Cave off is invalid...

I'll definitely buy the R1 DVD as I would love to hear about how they lit the environment and how they shot it...I think that would be fascinating...the whole environment was just plain scary

One could argue the film is more about style than substance, but I'm not even sure about that. But even if you take it as just an exercise in establishing mood, I'd have to say it was a success. Part of the problem is the director isn't trying to make anybodys idea of what a horror film should be-he's got his own agenda. Read a review on Amazon I think where the writer said that for at least 1/2 the film you're not watching the movie you think you are, and that strikes me as a perfect way to describe the experience..heck, even after finishing it I wasn't all that sure what I just watched, but I knew I enjoyed the journey. Trying to compare it to other films to establish a frame of reference might not be the way to go about it. Yeah, there are a lot of elements that have been in other films, but in this one they're used differently. There's a lot more going on than in your typical horror film if you're open enough to see it.
Course, there's always the other view too-my wife thought it was "silly". Sigh...

I think she was expecting a gorefest. After reading a couple of reviews I was feeling guilty because a lot of people mentioned the gore. This is the third film I've seen expecting a lot of gore from the reviews I've read, and then be left wondering what the shouting was about-Wolf Creek and Hostel are the other two. And they're not tame, but compared to the slasher/splatter films of the 80's there really isn't all that much to gross you out. My wife whispered to me a couple of times "I thought you said this was scary"- meaning she expected a lot of gore and blood. She can't handle that. I'm still wondering did they cut some out from the UK version?

I think gory and scary are very unrelated. The Innocents and The Haunting (original) are 2 VERY scary films with no blood. The 80's slasher films were tame in comparison to this. I recently watched a bunch of the old Friday the 13th films and thought The Descent had MUCH more blood. But the editing is MUCH quicker so you only see it for an instant. The compound fracture scene alone... eeek.
Now the end of High Tension unrated, WOAH! That's gore!

oh, I agree with you completely. In fact, I would go even further-most gore isn't scary. It takes you out of the film, spoils the mood in most cases-and horror is all about mood. F13 is all about the gore, the camera almost lovingly lingering on the FX, to the point of stepping outside of the film. I remember seeing the 1st one on the night it came out, how shocking it was, girls screaming, guys vomiting...same thing happened at the original Dawn Of The Dead. But shock only takes you so far-if you don't care about the characters, who cares what happens to them? I'll take your word there is more blood in The. Descent than F13, but its such a part of the story it doesn't draw attention to itself. But yeah, the leg sequence was a squirmy moment, and very intense.

i screened this for a big group last week and everyone loved it. i guess people just have different tastes.

the part of the movie with spelunking and climbing was just as nerve racking as the latter part with the creatures.

there are just some movies that you either like or not.

niel marshall's other film "dog soldiers" is another one. kinda silly if you aren't a fan of the stuff ( werewolves ). well kinda silly even if you are i loved that one too!!

there is a point where too much nit picking would just about keep you from enjoying anything.

I broke both bones in my lower leg back in high school so to this day any leg breaky stuff, ESPECIALLY when compounded with a compound get to me.

I saw the UK version. Awesome horror flick. The best I've seen in a while. It sure felt like a gorefest btw. Lots of gruesome stuff happening. Looked superb on my CRT projector btw. You sure she was watching the same flick? lol. How much gore does she need? If she wants gore rent Dead Alive. Nothing else even comes close.

What is the US ending like? I'm guessing the gave it more a of a happy ending.

If you really want to check out a non horror/comedy (just plain horror) with plenty of gore check out The Hills Have Eyes (there was some gruesome scenes in his other film High Tension as well).

I agree with some of what Fettastic said, the crawlers[yes they're not called the "whiteys"] were rather non scary looking and they were quiet frail, if a couple of chicks would kick their butts.


Is High Tension is out on DVD [R1]? I keep hearing about this film but somehow it went under my radar.

The crawlers/whiteys weren't super human (or maybe I should say super crawlers),they were killable, they were frail just like humans are frail. If you fought hard enough you had a chance. Unlike Jason/Freddy/etc.

I don't know if I understand you correctly but according to what was said in The Cave's DVD extras and also what has been discussed in other threads (The Cave vs. Pitch Black), The Cave have minimal, if none at all, CGI effects.

The creatures from the cave were not computer generated but puppets. The caves and the underwatter locations were all real, filmed with high definition digital cameras.

The quality of the picture and the cinematography is so good that it was reason enough for me to purchase the DVD and I consider it reference material.

Now I agree that the plot wasn't good but it wasn't that bad either.

Based on th all the human remains they were quiet skilled, or they should had been. It's not about that they were super or not, but they had quiet an advantage, even though they were blind. They knew the territory, and they do this for a "living". The girls on the other hand while athletic, weren't "commandoes" if you know what I mean, not to mention the'y were outnumbered.but I guess they had to make a movie with what they had.

I guess I'm the one afraid it would be a gorefest, going by the reviews, and was feeling guilty about taking her. So I over prepared her for it, knowing she dislikes that kind of film.
But really M, you thought it was gory? The resetting of the fractured leg made me squirm a moment, but overall I thought it was a film that depended more on suspense than an excess of blood..And thats not a bad thing...
High Tension was really good I thought( although not as good as this) and I really have to watch the HHE remake-rented it twice without getting to it because...well, you know..

Best Buy has High Tension for $3.99, but I'm afraid that's all it worth.My rental place only had the full screen version. This movie sucked!
