The Descent (2005) The sportswoman Sarah loses her husband and daughter in a car crash, but she survives. One year later, her friends Beth, Rebecca, Sam and Holly, leaded by Juno, invite her to explore a deep cave in the mountains. When the expedition is about three kilometers underground, a rock collapses and blocks the access tunnel, trapping the group inside the cave. With limited supplies, they try to find a way out, but sooner they face a hunger and savage breed of predators.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Holly: [Sarah has just been scared by a bunch of bats which attacked her. Holly films the bats flying away] [in imitation of 'The Count' from Sesame Street] Holly: One bat, two bats, fifty bats! [Beth comes up to her] Beth: Holly... Fuck off
  • Juno: [while fighting a crawler] Fucker!
  • Beth: [Sarah is trapped in a tunnel and Beth is trying to calm her down with a joke] Hey, you love this one, "How do you give a lemon an orgasm?" You tickle its citrus!
  • Beth: I'm an English teacher, not fucking Tomb Raider.
  • Sarah: What about you Holly, got a man ? Holly: Oh I'm a sports fuck like Juno.
Movie Trivia:
  • The cast members were taken to a rock-climbing center in Derbyshire to help prepare them for filming.
  • The hospital scene contains 30 extras.
  • This film's poster art is borrowed from a portrait photograph by Philippe Halsman of Salvador Dalí, entitled Salvador Dali In Voluptate Mors. (The photo itself was inspired by surrealist Dali's gouache Female Bodies as a Skull painting) This same imagery was also used for the poster for The Silence of the Lambs (1991).
  • Among the bones that Sarah falls into is a wolf's head which came from one of the werewolves from Neil Marshall's previous film Dog Soldiers (2002).
  • According to the audio commentary on the special edition DVD, there was a exact replica made of Nora-Jane Noone and after the movie was finished, she got to keep the head of the doll and put it in her mother's freezer as a joke.
