Well now I am on horror/scary movie number 4 and this plays upon a fear that I think most of us have. Actually scratch that, we all fucking fear the dark and being trapped in a confined space. Add in some unknown creatures lurking in the dark to heighten the tension and you got the movie The Descent. The movie itself is frightening at the basest level, it’s fear of the unknown, fear of being trapped, and fear of those around you. While not a splatterfest associated with horror movie, this is the core of horror movies, ones that are meant to use psychological aspects of creating and playing off of our fear.
