...apparently I need to watch The Descent.

It's fantastic. They released a version with an alternative ending in the US if I recall correctly.

Calling it "fantastic" definitely goes against the "The Descent" that I remember, but hey, it's a rainy Saturday, I love horror, and i have streaming services...brb in a few hours.

Well admittedly I watched it alone in a dark room at 2am on a projector but...

With more nuance:

It was a refreshing take on the genre with some great jump scares and a skin-crawling sense of claustrophobia.

Dude, I'm really enjoying this re-watch. As far as horror movies go, this is surprising me with how good it is. No one has really pissed me off yet, plenty of jump-inducing horror, no SF overload. I'm glad I chose to rewatch this, so thanks for that!

It's one of the best horror movies I've ever seen.

Fun fact they didn't let the cast see what the monsters look like up until their reveal in the movie itself. So all that tension and anticipation has a very real edge to it.

I think it's an all female cast. I've definitely watched it
