The cave drawings featured a woolly rhinoceros which lived in Eurasia. None have been found in North America. They lived during the Pleistocene epoch (1,808,000 to 11,550 years before present) and are known mainly through cave drawings. Recent carbon dating has shown that populations may have survived as recently as 8000 B.C. in Western Siberia. A nearly complete specimen was also found in a tar pit in Starunia, Poland. The oldest known cave paintings are approximately 40,000 years old. See more »

The brilliance of Dog Soldiers and the intensity of Aliens to create The best horror film in years
Ten.... wow is that is a high rating. The film probably only deserves a nine but with all its genius i decided to give it ten. How often is a horror film one of the best pictures of the year? how often do horror films actually scare the sh-t out of you? how often do horror films grip you in total suspense? how often do horror films have great acting? how often are horror films well made? how often are horror films somehow realistic? HOW OFTEN ARE HORROR FILMS ACTUALLY HORRIFYING?
well in modern times... the answer to all of those questions is "very rarely" but The Descent does all of those and more. Somehow, it even horrified critics (in a good way).
Note: the acting is strong all around but i have to say alex reid was perfect for the role of beth. She was no better than the rest of the cast but she seemed to fit her role more.
