The Descent

 (2005)

The Descent Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

On an annual extreme outdoor adventure, six women meet in a remote part of the Appalachians to explore a cave hidden deep in the woods. Far below the surface of the earth, disaster strikes when a rock fall blocks their exit and there's no way out. The women push on, praying for another exit, but there is something else lurking under the earth. The friends are now prey, 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.

For more about The Descent and the The Descent Blu-ray release, see the The Descent Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

The Descent Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Lionsgate's 1080p, 2.35:1 presentation of The Descent is outstanding. I noticed only one or two minor blemishes throughout the runtime of the film. Flesh tones in some of the early scenes are a little on the orange side, and a few flickers in the image are present here and there along with some noise in one darker scene late in the movie, but none of this is distracting or bad enough to obsess over. This is still a transfer that will knock your socks off, and it is even more impressive considering the setting and low level lighting used throughout the film. The Descent features a color palette that has a deliberate blue and gray tint about it early on in the film prior to the entry into the cave. This fits the overall tone of the film very well. Outdoor scenes look drab, foreshadowing the darkness and terror once the descent into the cave takes place. Detail is extremely high throughout. Once we get into the cave, the picture is constantly very, very dark, lit only by the lights on helmets and flares. This is where the strength of this transfer really shines. There is very little to no noise in the vast majority of the dark shots. Blacks aren't crushed, nor are they overly bright in an attempt to reveal more detail than we are intended to see. This image accurately represents the feeling of dread and claustrophobia to perfection. This is a top notch video transfer, and everything about it is spectacular. It is reference material from start to finish, and Lionsgate should be commended for handling what had the potential to be a disastrous transfer so remarkably well.


The Descent Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Descent features a chilling soundtrack that strikes just the right chord from the get-go to set the tone of the film. Presented with both a PCM uncompressed 6.1 track and a Dolby Digital 5.1 EX track, this is a robust, tense, well crafted audio experience. Like the video, the audio is reference grade from beginning to end. A scene where birds are shown feasting on the corpse of a dead animal and suddenly scatter in every direction is a great surround moment in the track. A scene during a cave-in and other bass heavy sequences shake the foundation of your house. Surrounds are present and accounted for and are active throughout the film. Scenes where the creatures circle and scamper around the girls are particularly excellent. The directionality and flow of the sound from one speaker to the next, circling your room, is an awesome sonic experience. It sounds so real that it'll have you nearly as terrified as the girls in the movie. Dialogue is perfect; you will never miss a word and nothing is obscured by the score, ambience, or bass. Highs, especially the screams of the victims and the shrieks of the creatures, are distortion free.
