Any notion of cave-diving with thrill-seeking pals will become your worst fear after seeing Neil Marshall’s The Descent (2006) – the story of six women whose off-grid adventure snowballs from bad to absolutely hellish when they become trapped underground. The all-female ensemble feel real and relatable. Sarah, Juno, Beth and co are strong, but make no mistake – they’re flawed, they’re scared and most importantly, they’re not safe from a potentially super-grisly death. Sarah is the heart of the story, with her dark past throwing an emotional time-bomb, with terrible consequences, into the group’s situation. Can she come to terms with her tragedy, or will the dark abyss and the evil waiting inside eat her alive? The Descent is a classic of British horror that every fan of the genre should watch – preferably with a crowd, in a pitch-black room. We know just the place.
