Movie Review - The Descent

Released in 2005, The Descent is a British horror movie that does away with haunted mansions, abandoned asylums, handheld cams, and other tired horror tropes.

The Crude Human Animal: H. P. Lovecraft and "The Descent"

There are many films that can be considered Lovecraftian horror on a surface level—John Carpenter’s The Thing, what with its preponderance of tentacled limbs and its Antarctic setting, probably chief among them—but if I had to pick which movie best represents Lovecraft’s thematic concerns, artistic trappings, and general aura, it wouldn’t be one of these pseudopod-wriggling entities (admirable as I find many of them). 2,268 more words
