What Scares Us - Episode 16: The Descent

When: January 5, 2024

Join us for a (literal) deep dive into The Descent, the 2005 British horror film directed by Neil Marshall. In this episode: We panic over the real-life Nutty Putty cave incident, debate if Sara is permanently stuck in the bone zone, and relate this movie to the incomparable 1986 film Aliens again and again.
