Critic Reviews of "The Descent"TIME MagazineOctober 15, 2008
Marshall could very well be the Caravaggio of the B-movie.Chicago ReaderSeptember 24, 2007
This intermittently effective UK horror thriller carefully establishes the psychological relationships among the women, then squanders this calibrated and generally plausible setup with a series of crude, implausible, and scattershot horror effects.AV ClubAugust 05, 2006
The Descent sustains a level of intensity that most horror films can barely muster for five minutes.USA TodayAugust 04, 2006
For my money, [the] first 20 or so minutes are the best in the film. Once the real adventure gets underway in the cave, things get less interesting.Toronto StarAugust 04, 2006
While the movie has wonderful moments of unmotivated tension that make sure we're quite ill at ease from the beginning, it's also got a few too many of the kind of cheap boo-scares that indicate a director not fully trusting his grip on you.Seattle TimesAugust 04, 2006
Tight shots of women desperately wriggling through worm holes or teetering on a ledge overlooking an abyss create a claustrophobic effect, one that leaves the characters gasping for air and the audience breathing shallower.Cinemaphile.orgJuly 31, 2014
Here is a movie so precise and cautious with its material that every moment, every suggestion or action, becomes an experience that involves us to alarming lengths.Radio TimesOctober 06, 2013
Super-scary and vicious, both psychologically and physically, this cleverly produced chill-ride is edgy British horror at its very best.Total FilmOctober 10, 2012
Tense, gory and masterfully malevolent.Suite101.comSeptember 25, 2010
Although Neil Marshall's attempt to justify the U.S. ending is admirable, the original ending is the only way out - providing a chilling bookend to a motif and suggesting what seems like cerulean-tinged peace is actually the solitary solace of madness.KinetofilmJanuary 31, 2010
Director Marshall has obviously kept his DVD player spinning for days studying all of the classics and simply taking everything he needed like a Vanilla Ice "Under Pressure"
