A Great Horror Movie January 6, 2007

I think nowadays, horror movies are trying to be too edgy, mainly in the vein of “Se7en”, with over-the-top gore, and attempting to be more nauseous than anything. But when you do catch a good scary movie, there are very few feelings like it.

Which brings me to “The Descent.” This movie does it all with its intensity, backdrop, story, and a hint of gore (ok, maybe a smidge more than a hint.) I couldnt imagine being trapped in a cave system that very few, hmm, humans have been through, while being chased by “crawlers” that cant see, but use their sense of hearing to find its prey. Did I mention that they are incredibly fast. Its fast-paced, with plenty of moments that make you wish you had a fresh pair. I havent enjoyed a good horror like this since the remake of “Dawn of the Dead.”
