It’s not very often a movie earns a crown from us, but when it does, we mean it!
Movie: The Descent
Year of Release: 2005
Crowned For: Being the current ‘Scariest’ film of all time.
At Generic, we love showing recognition to some of the best movies ever made, so when we find one, we crown it!
The Descent (2005) has received the award after being voted the Top Scariest Film of all Time by our wonderful followers.
This was decided after weeks of suggestions, short-listing and voting.
The Descent is a terrifying, claustrophobic, unnerving film, telling the story of a group of strong-willed and athletic women who head out on a caving exhibition. It’s the one year anniversary of when one of their number – Sarah, lost her husband and daughter in a terrible accident.
To distract their depressed friend they descend into the caves but become trapped 3 kilometres down when a rockfall blocks their exit. Struggling for supplies, air, and impending claustrophobia, their situation becomes even more desperate when they encounter a group of hungry predators intent on making the group their next victims.
