    I watched this last November when the region 2 DVD was released, but since the US will be getting it in theaters next month (August 4th) I thought I'd see how many people have seen it so far. The US theatrical version's ending will be a dumbed down "happy" ending. The original ending is perfect and shouldn't be fucked with. Lions Gate is also fucking up the trailer (shows one of the biggest scares) and the poster.

    Here's a pretty good review (4/4) : http://www.joblo.com/arrow/reviews.php?id=983
    Another review (9.5/10) : http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/review.php?id=1090

    I'd be willing to upload the XviD DVD-rip if enough people want it.

    Basically some people found the ending too confusing. The ending could be interpreted in different ways, but there's one interpretation that makes the most sense. And it seems like we always have to have happy endings in America.:hs:

    Here's two torrents:
    The.Descent[2005]DvDrip.AC3[Eng]-aXXo:
    http://isohunt.com/dl.php?id=7938310 (49 seeders, 74 leechers)

    The Descent DVDRip XviD-DoNE 2005:
    http://isohunt.com/dl.php?id=12062737 (15 seeders, 2 leechers)


    Here's three .NZBs if you use newsgroups:
    PAL DVD 9 - http://obscureness.net/files/msgid_1993467_The_Descent_(2005)_(PAL)_(DVD_9).nzb
    PAL DVD - http://obscureness.net/files/msgid_1995152_The_Descent_(2005)_(PAL).nzb
    XviD - http://obscureness.net/files/msgid_1987696_The_Descent_(2005).nzb

    Just finished watching it. Great movie.

    However, it reminds me of the move, The Cave.

    Sadly that's what alot of people compare it to. The main reason is because they have a similar plotline "trapped in a cave/hunted by monsters." The Descent is one of the best horror movies in recent years, whereas The Cave just simply sucked ass.


    Here's a quote that pretty much sums it up:

    Another thing some people aren't catching in the movie is:

    Someone requested it to be uploaded, so if you want the XviD version I'll send you a PM.

    I will also put up the original ending for those that have watched the US theatrical version on Friday.

    I just got back from seeing it, and the ending wasn't "happy" in my opinion :dunno:, it was rather sad

    But I thought the movie was very good. It was most definitely a thriller and the whole theater was coming out of their seats and screaming....great atmosphere.

    However, the ending did lead me to believe that there will be a sequel

    Well it's "happy" compared to the UK ending, because she actually gets out.

    There's already plans for a sequel, but Marshall won't be directing it:

    why can't Pulse be rated R instead of PG-13
    :rolleyes:
    Preview kind look good but only if it gets really graphic, but I doubt that with the PG-13 rating - so I think it will be lame now.
