Opening in August, 2006
A Lionsgate Pictures Release

One year after a tragic accident,
six girlfriends meet in a remote part
of the Appalachians for their annual
extreme outdoor adventure, in this
case the exploration of a cave hidden
deep in the woods. Far below the
surface of the earth, disaster strikes
when a rock falls and blocks their route
out. The group splinters and each woman
pushes on, praying for another exit. But
there is something else lurking under the
earth a race of monstrous humanoid creatures that have
adapted perfectly to life in the dark. As the friends realize they
are now prey, they are forced to unleash their most primal instincts in an all-out war against an unspeakable horror one that attacks without warning, again and again and again.
THE DESCENT
is written and directed by Neil Marshall and stars Shauna Macdonald and
Nora-Jane Noone ("The Magdalene Sisters").
