The Descent DVD

so...i just finished watching the descent on DVD...
started out pretty good...the scenes where the characters are squeezing their way through the caves were pretty good... made me panic and trying to gasp for air! ...
well the plot is...basically a bunch of girls all go on a camping trip...decide to go to a cave and explore it..but low and behold there are some weird creatures that sort of look like humans...so on ...and... so on ...you get the picture
so basically the girls are trying to find a way out since the way they came in...got CAVED in...and they are also being hunted by these weird creatures

lots of blood...but i thought some scenes were hard to see what was happening but i guess that was the point since they are in a cave....

I wont give any spoilers here...but overall it was a fun experience although the ending was kinda blah..whatever type of ending...

but i suggest you go and rent it at least and give it a try if you are looking for some good ol blood and guts!

I think the ending is actually what makes this movie better than most of the horror movies since it really reflects what the title of this movie. I won't spoil the ending but the theatrical version one definitely betrays the movie; good thing the DVD is released with its original ending. The only complaint I have is that the characters are too much alike that they seem interchangable; especially in the dark; hard to know who is who except for certain ones. Not too crazy about the creatures either; I wonder how much better the movie will be without it since the whole trapped in cave thing and what's goin on in their mind are scary enough

Thanks for your input! In some scenes in the movie, I was thinking to myself, lets hold off on personal grudges maybe after you get out of the cave, if they ever do get out. But I did enjoy the movie alot, just some parts i was like "What the..." The ending was good though...so for all who have not watched it go and rent it!

Yes, people should check out this movie. I don't think it is as violent as people said although the 1st couple minutes...wow. Anyway, there are a lot of interpretations of what's hapenning in the cave. I should listen to the DVD commentary track to hear exactly what the director's explanation of the whole thing is.
