This film's poster art is borrowed from a portrait photograph by Philippe Halsman of Salvador Dalí, entitled Salvador Dali In Voluptate Mors. (The photo itself was inspired by surrealist Dali's gouache Female Bodies as a Skull painting) This same imagery was also used for the poster for The Silence of the Lambs (1991). See more »
The green light almost never matches the green glowsticks supposedly casting them. Several times the actors' shadows fall in the direction of the glowstick, rather than away from it. 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.
