The second film English horror film-maker Neil Marshall. According to his first draft of "dog soldiers" it becomes clear that Neal likes to shoot intense films, filled with dynamics, which is successfully combined with psychological insight.

"Descent" at the is similar to "dog soldiers", the situation is similar, only instead of werewolves Neal this time decided to include in the film some blind monsters.

The film is filled with just chilling atmosphere, on over view there is some strange sense of impending doom, you begin to feel part of the movie.
A situation in which girls are not a pleasant one, being in the cave, completely cut off from the outside world. It is already beginning to frighten, and as it turned out they still not alone...

Special attention creators paid most of the cave, trying to create more horror. It was the decor of this place needs to inspire fear, and the creators rightly decided to place heroines in an unknown cave, where flooded out and need to find a new... Presenting yourself in the place of women is really terrible, no help one, the lack of food, air and connection the outside world, though of course such terms have mentioned in the notorious film "the Pit." And in General a "Descent" is strongly reminiscent of the film "the Grotto", the ending and the denouement of the action really different, but, in General, the essence and the idea is the same straight. Although the "Grotto" is very far from atmospheric awesome "Descent".

The scenery was certainly gorgeous, the cave looked very colorful, you can see her beauty, and later, when you start to dive into see how it's a scary and unpleasant place. In addition, the important role played by lighting in the movie (by the way, the second name of the film — "evil dark"), sometimes barely illuminated corners of the area instilled a state of fear and when the lighting was generally not in itself. To the same the film just on the highest level, if  the"Dogs-soldiers" were clearly seen this fault, in "the Descent" this defect was fixed.

It was very interesting to see the behavior of the characters, like that each of them show themselves. When you find yourself on the brink between life and death should unite and become a team, but conflict of mistrust between the girls gained a great deal of power...
This psychological insight rarely found in modern horror. Of course, it is a pity girls, each of them was good in its own right. Actress, perfectly fit into characters have played great. Neel Marshall — the Director, who correctly suited to filmmaking, choosing really talented actors, but not good Actresses, huh that stupid running around and yelling, yeah they it fails, but the actress starring in the film is just gorgeous.

Yes, it is definitely a wonderful representative of the horror genre. And can say that this is a truly terrible film, which scares everything: the environment and atmosphere point situation, and even the monsters. It is really worthy and scary movie surprisingly devoid of meaning. Let these movies came out before, but better than "Descent" of the film on a similar theme earlier shot not been. Hope Neel Marshall will continue to delight fans of similar projects.

I advise everyone to watch who really want to get scared, and not to look for those who wants to nerves. The film leaves a creepy aftertaste, as after a nightmare. Especially in contrast with, in General, harmless the beginning.

Frankly, very unpleasant to think about this film being in this cave, especially when you closing. The more so analytical dictates that in the idea of the film there is nothing is impossible. After all, living in caves, blind fish and amphibians, why it's not be more developed beings? And the isolation of the caves from the outside world means that some they can be unexpected discoveries.

Very impressed with the first footage from being like if incidentally caught in the lens. There was a feeling that I imagining, despite what they knew what's the movie.

"God, I love that movie!" — sweeps from me every time I watch this film. Yes, the movie Descent I saw a lot of times, but only just got around to write a review.

Start with that I really like the plot. Originally, some girls and it is only a plus, no cute guys who are stupid die, no brutal guys are stupid trying to look cool and other nonsense. Here only defenseless, but the courageous girls, and it's catchy.

The cast is great! Starting from beloved by me, the heroine Shauna McDonald — Sarah is up to her on-screen daughter Jessica. Particularly pleased as I gave understand, Shauna MacDonald and Natalie Mendoza.

Pleased that "chopper" does not begin from the beginning of the film, and already 4/6 of the film. To it was followed by a Preface, you have huge trouble with one of characters, then trip and stay in house and therefore have the actual cave, which looks very true.

Action heroines are not seem silly, the action develops very quickly, but okay.

The ending is great, loved it.

In fact, there is much to write about this wonderful film, but I will just say: "the Film is required to view". Look, worry, and become afraid of the dark;)
