Episode 49: The Descent (2005)

The guys journey deep into the caves of Appalachia this week with their discussion of one of this century’s greatest horror films, Neil Marshall’s 2005 bloodbath The Descent. The film manages to do a lot with a little, both empowering and disemboweling its female action heroes and delivering the scares and tension all throughout, which probably gives it the critical darling status that it has gained over the years. The guys also discuss what the worst way to go would be down in the caves with the Crawlers as well as which Bit Player they’d sacrifice to make it up Bone Mountain and into open daylight.
