Also considering you have no knowledge of our views, and none of us are the film critics that gave it 86 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes - maybe you could read a couple their reviews rather than asking us about it?

posted on 16/1/22

Apologies, NPE, I thought we were contributing to a platform on which we share our thoughts about the topic - in this case films - and part of the make up of those thoughts may very clearly be complaints about a film’s public perception.

99% of what we say here can be found via a quick Google search, sure, but the fun is in the active / live debate with people, no? I could read the review, but the review won’t speak back to me, sadly, and in that sense it’s a little bit like tennis, for me: it’s better with a partner…

For the record, I don’t play tennis and was going to change that anecdote to one of sexual reference, but figured that may offend you as well

Your literal question was "Anyone whose seen the descent wanna tell me why it has good reviews other than the fact it has an all-female cast?"

As I have not developed telepathy or time-travel yet, I am unable to tell you why critics in 2006 gave it broadly positive opinions. Instead, I thought 'd direct you to reviews, which may be of more use to you.

Yes, but I thought you - and other users - would be able to look past the literal sense of the sentence and be able to realise that I was using quite a common semantic format to begin a debate or discussion on the film. You know how people get mad at film makers because they spell stuff out for the audience so blatantly, and complainants steadfastly assert that the audience is smart enough to work those things out for themselves? Yeah, that.

Wait! That’s the one where they go into the caves.
I think I have seen that one. Been a while.
Soz, i forget. I don’t watch much horror. But saw Salems Lot recently.

Any good? Must confess, I’d actually only heard the reference in an Eminem lyric 😂

3 hours and 4 minutes!? I usually only reserve that kind of time for LOTR or the Hateful Eight

It actually was. I found it quite tense. Obviously a product of it’s time. A bit slow in parts. But I found it creepy. It’s in 2 parts. It was a TV movie.
The effects are pretty well done.

You're not a fan? Years since I watched it but I remember it being intense
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It’s beautifully shot, and well acted, but ultimately boring and filled with odious characters. I liked it slightly better second viewing, still found it dull.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I wish there were GIF’s on here: I’d be dog slapping you right now
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Wtf is a dog slap? I stand by it-well crafted boring film
----------------------------------------------------------------------


Famous GIF where owner gets slapped in the face by his dog. For calling it boring, that’s what you deserve
----------------------------------------------------------------------


But it is dull. Very little actually happens

i was not overly impress with it eether

even the i drunked ur milkshake line isnt a patticularly grate line

My favourite horror movie ever is the original Halloween and that’s the same era (though, maybe less SFX-heavy), so I will give it a go - cheers

Also, I watched Juno last night and they reference two guys in there that are supposedly “the grandmasters
of horror”, so I need to do a bit of research into them to see if they’re genuine directors with great horror films or it was just some random reference - I don’t think I’d heard of either

posted on 16/1/22

whut were the names?

posted on 16/1/22

h8 Juno as it disrespected Sonic Youth

posted on 16/1/22

Herschel Gordon Lewis - old director mostly famous for splatter horror movies of the 60s. Original master of splatter horror
Dario Argento - famous Italian director for weird classics in the 70s like Suspiria etc

My personal masters of horror are the likes of Tobe Hooper - Texas chainsaw massacre, which is my favourite horror movie of all time
John Carpenter - The Thing etc
Wes Craven - Scream etc

You seen the new scream film, Don? Saw it had some decent reviews (I check out IGN for video game news, but they also do films and gave it 9/10)

posted on 16/1/22

It's a bit like someone saying Mona Lisa doesn't work for them - so what, it's still great.

Dog slap indeed.

I haven’t mate, but me and the wife are planning on going in a few weeks. Going to drop our little boy off to her mums, then do a late afternoon showing. Heard good things, but trying not to read to much on it in case of spoilers

posted on 16/1/22

Sounds like a welcome break! Hoping to go see it soon, too; let’s hope the scariest thing is not Courtney Cox’s face after all the work 😂

Such a shame, as she was quite the dream in the original, though I guess she is getting on now
