The Descent (2005)

Pack your climbing gear because we're headed to the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina to go caving with the ladies (er....chicks with picks) of Neil Marshall's 2005 masterpiece The Descent on its 15th anniversary! How is a movie this scary when the monsters don't even appear until an hour into the film?

Join us as into a discussion of why Juno (Natalie Mendoza) is a compelling character in spite of all of her mistakes (thanks, Joe!). We'll also investigate the potential queerness of Beth (Alex Reid) and Holly (Nora-Jane Noone) and choose between the UK and US endings of the film (spoiler alert: it's an easy choice). Also does The Descent feature the most tense scene in cinema history?

Plus, an educational TED talk about the differences between claustrophobia and cleithrophobia. Why can't Trace stop bringing up the atrocious 2009 sequel? What is a dealbreaker movie and why do both of us consider The Descent to be one? And how do you give a lemon an orgasm?
