NOT the Descent
11 August 2018 | by jwcstorageSee all my reviews

I was only vaguely familiar with the "creepypasta" this was from, and didnt even realize thats why I was familiar with this story until I saw someone else comment on that.

If you are easily scared, I imagine this movie will do the trick.

However, if you want something similar to the Descent, you will be disappointed.

The movie starts out seemingly well. There is a bit of brotherly tension and a father who had passed away bringing them together again. They discover a cave system that seems previously undiscovered and decide to try to explore the cave.

Thats when the story, which early on has good pacing and some interesting things going on goes off the rails. A couple other characters are introduced for not many reasons and the nice pacing that was happening falls apart into a slog.

There are jump scares, possible hallucinations, and a bunch of random things that seem meaningless.

As it is based off of a creepypasta (internet urban legend basically), there are maybe details they had to shoehorn in, but its been so long since I read the "story" that I dont recall. Regardless, how its handled in the movie is just awful.

I'd skip this one and go re-watch the descent with the UK ending again.
