When Neil Marshall's film Dog Soldiers (2002) was a moderate success, the director received numerous requests to direct other horror films. The director was initially wary of being typecast as a horror film director, although he eventually agreed to make The Descent, emphasising, "They are very different films." See more »
The fact that the cave system was unexplored and not the cave system that the group had planned for should have become apparent very quickly. It's unlikely that it would have matched any maps or charts Juno would have had. And the absence of any trash, footprints or signs that climbing gear had been used there would have evident.
It certainly wouldn't taken experienced cave explorers much time to notice the discrepancies. See more »

In the alternate version of the movie, Sarah escapes the cave and runs to her car. She drives down the road and stops. After vomiting out the window, she sits up and Juno, whose face is streaked with blood, is sitting right beside her. Sarah screams and the camera cuts to the credits. See more »
I loved it, I went in expecting something along the lines of "Dog soldiers", something funny and enjoyable but instead I got a roller coaster ride of tension and fear. So often these days horror movies just aren't scary, they make you jump they have a little bit of atmosphere and that's it, well this film was scary. It was tense, well acted, and the director made great use of the setting to scare the hell out of you. I don't want to go in to a lot of detail in this review, as I don't want to spoil the experience for anyone who reads it, and that is what this film is an experience I came out of the cinema shaking. This film is well worth your time.
