Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
The director of The Descent is savvy enough to suggest even more than he shows. And he's old-school enough to load up on glimpses of good, clean, gruesome gore.

The A.V. Club - Scott Tobias
The Descent sustains a level of intensity that most horror films can barely muster for five minutes.

Empire - Dan Jolin
Brutal, bloody, terrifying, astonishing... And so tense it'll leave you aching. The most significant Brit chiller since "28 Days Later."

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
This one is a creepy white-knuckle excursion into horror, where even the "boo!" moments are so well developed that they cause a jolt.

New York Daily News - Jack Mathews
This is one of the scariest movies featuring female heroines since the "Alien" series, and what makes it uniquely scary is where these women are -- in tunnels two miles under ground -- when they realize they are not alone.
