The Month of Horror Day 8: The Descent

Basement contributor Matt Bellamy has taken it upon himself to watch and review at least one horror movie a day for the month of October . . . because he's awesome that way!And today Bellamy heads into the bowels of the earth to bring your the claustrophobic fear of The Descent!

If you are claustrophobic then this movie could mentally and possibly physically destroy you. Director Neil Marshall had gained some horror cred prior to this movie with the fantastic cult hit 'Dog Soldiers' and as good as that was I don't think anyone had any idea he had this in him; 'The Descent' is SCARY. The story follows a group of adventerous 20-something women who decide it would be fun to get in a day of cave exploration and spelunking, only problem is that this cave is somewhat unstable and happens to contain a band of bloodthirsty creatures with a taste for blood! This is one gruesome horror flick and easily one of the best to come along in the last ten years.
