The Descent (2005)
The old mining equipment found in the caves and arrows scrawled on the walls appears to hint at a direct tie in with similar scenes in "Journey to the Center of the Earth".
Brief shower scene in the cabin pays homage to Hitchcock.
Imitation of the Count, counting bats: "One bat. Two bats. Fifty bats....ha ha ha!"
After a sequence of white water rafting, the heroes are driving through the backwoods with banjo music on the radio.
The scene in the end where Sarah dreams that she is escaping and is completely crazy is an homage to the ending in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. There is even a large logging truck that drives by, just like the semitruck in the Chainsaw Massacre.
When the main character comes out of the pond covered in blood with wide eyes and when a hand comes out of the ground at the end.
Heroine emerges from still water head first, slowly with slicked down hair.
Character stands under a stream of water and looks up and water spatters on hat.
The echo-locating rattle noise the creatures make and the scream she emits whilst holding the torch mirrors the roar by dutch. Also, when the creeper climbs over Sarah's head after the blood pool scene, a correlation can be made with the tree scene towards the end of Predator.
Upon seeing cave entrance: "I'm an English teacher, not fucking Tomb Raider."
