The Descent (2005)

The crawly cave-beasts keep popping up in sudden soundtrack blasts, but Neil Marshall's half-baked ideas about betrayal and woman's capacity for savagery are simplistic and pretentious.

The Descent (2005)

This second feature by Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers) knows what it's about, both its generic limits and your knowledge of those limits. It doesn't try to trick you, but instead delivers the usual tension-building effects.
