The Descent is one of my favorite horror movies because it caught me on surprise when I went to see it in 2005. Having heard only little about it, and not knowing what I got myself into, I thought I give it a chance, ONLY because there was nothing else out at that time. Never have I been that anxious and nervous about what’s going to happen next. This movie won’t let you go, it confronts you with so many dimensions of fear, and the ending will blow your mind. This movie was made by and for people who love and appreciate great writing and cinematography. I would not recommend to watch this movie alone, because you might need someone to talk to hold on to.
