The Descent (Pathe Distribution, 2005)
The Descent is a 2005 British adventure horror film written and directed by Neil Marshall. The film follows six women (Shauna Macdonald, Natalie Mendoza, Alex Reid, Saskia Mulder, MyAnna Buring and Nora-Jane Noone) who have to survive the humanoid creatures inside the cave system they entered. Filming took place in Ashridge Park, Hertfordshire (England) and in Scotland but was set in North Carolina. Interior “cave” shots were filmed on sets built at Pinewood Studios in London. The film had different endings for the UK and American releases. (In the UK, Sarah (Macdonald) is overcome by the crawlers. This ending was cut from the American as it was considered too dark for the audience.) The film was produced for 3.5 million pounds and brought in $57.1 million. A sequel was released in 2009.
