On an annual extreme outdoor adventure, six women friends meet in a remote part of the Appalachians to explore a cave hidden deep int the woods. Far below the surface of the earth, disaster strikes when a rock fall blocks their exit and there is no way out. The women push on, praying for another exit, but there is something else lurking under the earth. The friends are now prey, forced to unleash their most primal instincts in an all-out war against an unspeakable horror that attacks without warning.

A total waste of time submitted by btmiller on March 6, 2007, 1:26pm Really, really, really bad. Completely un believeable. I am 72 yers old and a retired motion picture theatre manager. I have watched 1000's of motion pictures in my carrer and this is one of the all time worst movies ever.

Underrated submitted by celesteh on June 8, 2010, 10:58am I saw this when it came out in the theatre and was so pleasantly surprised. In fact, The Descent is so well-done it gave me renewed hope for the future of the horror genre. It's incredibly creepy - most of the film takes place inside a cave when a group of women go spelunking deep in Appalachia. If that isn't creepy enough, "things" are hiding in the caves. In addition to that, there are deeper complexities in this film. Female friendship can be tricky, and some of the underlying issues the women are having with each other are really tense, adding more layers to this story.

There is an alternate ending on the DVD that I prefer to the American theatrical version. You'll have to decide for yourself!

SO SCARY submitted by crazypockets on July 15, 2013, 6:16pm I agree with celesteh that this was really underrated. I think it's one of the scariest movies of all time. It was also kind of revolutionary in that it had an all female cast of all unknowns. It is gory, suspenseful, and really really creepy. I think it does just what any great horror movie should do: scare you in all kinds of different ways and send you away with a brand new phobia. I was never claustrophobic before and thought I'd even enjoy caving someday. Not now!
