A Descent into white-knuckle horror

7 years, 5 months ago at Apr 26 15:58

"Hey, there's something down here..."

British writer-director Neil Marshall made a splash in 2002 with the cult favourite Dog Soldiers. With his follow-up feature, The Descent, Marshall has raised his game several notches and proved he is among the best horror filmmakers in the business. Benefitting from truly remarkable cinematography, several iconic images, and a level of believab... read more

This has become one of my all time favourites. There has been a few caving horrors out in 2005-2006 and I've seen a couple of them. This one is the best of them by far.

I'm not easily scared by movies but this one truly gave me the creeps. It had me glued to it the whole way through and was intense from start to finish. It doesn't have a boring a moment.

Medo do abismo

Filmes de terror são alvos de preconceito porque a maioria das produções do gênero são ruins. Isso, por incrível que pareça, tem um lado bom. Quando vemos algumas exceções nós adoramos. O que acontece com "Abismo do Medo".

Do inglês Neil Marshall, "Abismo do Medo" mostra um grupo de amigas que decide viajar para explorar uma caverna no meio dos EUA. E como um bom módulo ... read more

A pleasure caving trip turns frightful in this horror film written and directed by Neil Marshall. Six girlfriends, led by thrill seeker Juno (Natalie Mendoza), go spelunking a year after a tragic incident. But when they get trapped under the earth, all rationale escapes them as they start to suffer from limited oxygen and delusions -- or are they? Now, the friends must find a way to escape the cave and the murky creatures that lie within it.

"13.10. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Neil Marshall To be commended for evoking claustrophobia extremely successfully; I almost wish the entire film was focused on that, instead of the cave-dwellers who are a tad lame in the end. The action scenes could've been directed better, and I found the characters pretty annoying. Nevertheless, this film has a cool premise and I think it succeeds pretty well as a genuinely thrilling horror film. "

"Katsottu: 1.10.2017, HBO Nordic Ihan asiallinen kauhuleffa. Aika jännittävä ja todella verinen. Joistain pimeässä kuvatuista kohtauksista oli vähän vaikea saada selvää. "

"4.9. HBO Uusintakatselu, ei muutoksia. Lokikirjassa merkintä reilun seitsemän vuoden takaa, eikä se niin tuoreessa muistissa ollutkaan kuin kuvittelin. Uusintanakin mykistävää, äärimmäistä terroria."

"This was way less scarier than I remembered. The claustrophobic tunnel crawling parts were the most effective the blind albino elves really were not. "

Horror Films Rated Too Low at IMDb (14 movies items)

"Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 85% There are two alternative endings to this movie: the U.S. ending and the U.K. ending. The former is more satisfying, but has a sequel hook to it. While the latter is more bleak, but more logical. I like both endings almost equally. So, it doesn't matter which ending the viewer prefers."

"This is one of my all time favorite horror flicks. It's well made, few succeeded ones out there. Mood is distressing, because im claustrophobic and those things which are living in the cave are freaking scary whose make-ups looks pretty disturbing."

" LAST WATCHED: 1/24/2017                  COMMENTS: Can we admire, for just a moment, the fantastic movie poster accompanying this movie? It's very cleverly done. I'm not sure if claustrophobia really affects me or not. I can handle being in tight spots if I know it's temporary (like a couple of Halloween haunted houses I've been to), but I would never willingly enter a cave system the likes of which are shown here, even if it was mapped. I've been in a couple of cave syst"
