Village Voice by
In the great B tradition, Marshall gets a lot out of nothing.
Brutal, bloody, terrifying, astonishing... And so tense it'll leave you aching. The most significant Brit chiller since "28 Days Later."
The chills and spills keep comin' to agreeable effect in Brit-made scarefest The Descent.
New York Daily News by
This is one of the scariest movies featuring female heroines since the "Alien" series, and what makes it uniquely scary is where these women are -- in tunnels two miles under ground -- when they realize they are not alone.
This one is a creepy white-knuckle excursion into horror, where even the "boo!" moments are so well developed that they cause a jolt.
Entertainment Weekly by
The director of The Descent is savvy enough to suggest even more than he shows. And he's old-school enough to load up on glimpses of good, clean, gruesome gore.
Austin Chronicle by
The Descent may not be everything you've heard, but man, it's also a lot of things you haven't.
L.A. Weekly by
Compulsively watchable, with its fair share of effective sledgehammer shocks; it just isn't very good.
The A.V. Club by
The Descent sustains a level of intensity that most horror films can barely muster for five minutes.
His fear began when he woke up alone. His terror began when he realised he wasn't.
We've been expecting you.
One witness. One camera

Fear runs deeper
