What are critics saying?
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 Jack Mathews
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.

The Descent may not be everything you've heard, but man, it's also a lot of things you haven't.
Compulsively watchable, with its fair share of effective sledgehammer shocks; it just isn't very good.
The Descent sustains a level of intensity that most horror films can barely muster for five minutes.
