THE DESCENT is Neil Marshall's hotly anticipated follow up to his 2002 hit DOG SOLDIERS. Directed by Marshall from his own script, it tells the story of an all-female caving expedition that goes horribly wrong, and stars
Shauna Macdonald, Natalie Mendoza, Alex Reid, Saskia Mulder, Nora-Jane Noone and Myanna Buring. Set in a cave system deep in the Appalachian Mountains, Marshall describes his film as 'DELIVERANCE goes underground'.
One year after a tragic accident, six girlfriends meet in a remote part of
the Appalachians for their annual caving trip. Deep below the surface of
the earth, disaster strikes when a rock falls and blocks their route back to
the surface. The girls soon learn that Juno, the thrill-seeking leader of
the expedition, has brought them to an unexplored cave and that as a result
no knows where they are to come rescue them. The group splinters and each
push on, praying for another exit. But there is something else lurking
under the earth - a race of monstrous humanoid creatures that are adapted
perfectly to life in the dark. As the friends realize they are now prey,
they are forced to unleash their most primal instincts in an all-out war
against an unspeakable horror - one that attacks without warning, again and
again and again.
As the others battle for their lives, Sarah (Macdonald), still recovering
from a mental collapse brought on by the recent deaths of her family, is
fighting for her sanity. When old secrets are revealed, the friends turn on
one another, causing the group to implode. Betrayed and desperate, Sarah
realizes that to make it back to the surface, she must become as savage as
the creatures themselves.
