Does anybody know the relesed date in the U.S. for the DVD of the movie The Descent?

Amazon have it listed but no price info is available and I can not add it to my shopping cart.

I bought a copy on e-Bay, the 2 disc DTS version, best horror movie I've seen in quite awhile. From what I've read US release will be sometime around August, don't know how true that is though.

I just read in Premiere that it will be released in theaters sometime this summer, so the DVD probably won't be available until at least October I'm guessing. If your player can accept an import it would be worth it... I've seen new copies for around $20 which is well worth it for this GREAT horror flick.

I was under the impression this was released in U.S. last summer and didn't do much because of confusion with The Cave????

Is the PAL version the only one available?

Guess so...
I have the PAL 2-disc .... awesome.

Got it here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...855434-9970364

Word around is it will be release in U.S. sometime this Summer, but will be edited including approx. 15min. cut from ending, to soften it (read: butcher it) for U.S. consumption.

Sorry, it's a link to e-Bay, just do a search on e-Bay for "The Descent". You should find the Region 1 version (from a seller in Canada) and the Region 2 version with DTS from a seller in the UK. I ordered mine from the UK, arrived very quickly.

Really good horror flick...leaves The Cave in the dark.

Ordered the 2-disk DTS PAL version from Amazon UK.
Excellent sound...video is good enough (for PAL).

Tried to watch with the wife this evening...BAD idea...she wouldn't stop jumping and screaming!
Finally, she got so bad I had to send her to bed (it was really scary, he-he).
And so, in summary, if you like good scares this movie is for you (just don't bring a date).

While looking for the Luc Besson action flick I came across the 2-disc special edtion of The Descent (PAL/R2) for about $13.00. This movie is awesome. I loved it. The sound is quite good (I listened to DTS) and the PQ is excellent. Footage in the dark cave comes across very well. I read a review that said the average bitrate is 8.25 Mb/s. I HATE the thought of being in a cave and crawling around tunnels you can barely squeeze through. I gives me the heebie jeebies. I held my breath for about half the movie.

Larry,

I was wondering when you would get to this (after realizing you are a Horror-Fan).
I'm with you in every way...this has to be one of the scariest movies ever.
The older I get, the more claustrophobic I get (no idea why).
Next to sharks, being stuck in a tunnel...oh god, can't even go there.

Wasn't there a third movie within the last year similar to The Cave and Descent? Anyways, after all the rave reviews of Descent I think I will blind buy the R2 version.

I can't think of any other cave or underground movies recently. You won't be disappointed with The Descent.

Larry,

It was bothering me so I did a search and found it. It's called the Cavern (duh) and it's set for release on the 18th of this month. It's original title is Within.
Here's the info on IMDB:

No wonder I haven't seen it. Don't know if I'll go out of my way to see this one. (Buy it) The review didn't speak that well of it, except for the ending. The Cave was ok, but The Descent is head and shoulders above it.

IMDB shows 2 runtimes of 95 and 87 minutes.
Amazon shows the R1 release with a runtime of 72 minutes?

Well, I'll watch it if I accidently catch it on Sci-Fi channel but with Sci-Fi Channel movies record of making lame flicks it's most likely bad. As for Cavern, I put it on my Netflix Queue just to see whatever cool ending is on it.

Yeah, I saw the trailer over the weekend too...I think on Spike TV. This was the first time I saw it anywhere but on this computer monitor, and I gotta say, the movie looks like it could be great.

Don't like all this talk about the US getting a "toned down" version though.

I dont either, its a bunch of crap, and it happens on a lot of movies. When this comes out in dvd, I will wait and hope that it ultimately will be released in an unrated version that will not be toned down.

You need a region-free player and a player that converts PAL to NTSC (can be so-so) or outputs the PAL video. If you're TV only accepts 60Hz video, then you have to convert PAL to NTSC. Some players can be made region free with a magic button sequence on the remote.

You can walk into Walmart and get one for $30. Even Target and Costco carries players you can hack to become region free. Check out this site for more info. and brands that you can convert to region free.
