A film about spelunkers going where no sane man (or woman) has gone before and running afoul of things that lurk in the deep darkness… Sound familiar? If you're thinking of a misbegotten film called The Cave, put it from your mind. That movie was flat-out stupid. This one is a creepy white-knuckle excursion into horror, where even the "boo!" moments are so well developed that they cause a jolt. It's too early in the year to coronate a movie with the title of "Scariest Movie of 2006" but, when all the corpses have been counted on New Year's Eve, The Descent will at least be near the top. For horror fans and those who love things that go bump in the night, this is one not to miss.
