Last Monday The Descent was released on DVD (in the UK anyway) giving thosae of you who might have missed this little gem on its cinema release the chance to get the bejesus scared out of you.
Following a similar plot to the lame CGI-fest The Cave, The Descent follows a group of 6 female cavers whose bonding trip into the Appulachian mountains goes horrible wrong. The main character, Sarah, is trying to overcome the traumatic death of her husband and daughter 12 months earlier and the title could be seen as a description of her mental state as the shocks pile up and she gets steadily unhinged.
Im not going to give too much away because that would spoil it, but suffice to say the ladies are not alone in the depths of the earth- and after the tension is wonderfully piled up in the first half of the film, the second half is chock full of jumps and scares and A LOT of blood.
Coming from the same director as Dog Soldiers (also worth checking out werewolf-movie fans) this is very much a homage to the buckets of blood 70s horror movies, and doesnt rely heavily on CGI to deliver the shocks, just moody lighting, original monsters and good old fashioned mood. Highly Reccommended (to anyone over 18 anyway)

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll look out for it.
Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
