Talking Down the Horror

Some interesting discussion over one of my favorite movies, The Descent. Though I gotta warn ya, it's loaded with spoilers so don't read it if you haven't seen it.

And you really have to see it (together with director Neil Marshall's other great film, Dog Soldiers).

Given how much I enjoyed Dog Soldiers, I'm so ashamed how I haven't seen this yet (which seems to be something I'd enjoy even more) that I think I'll go watch this tonight.

On an unrelated note, thanks so much for picking up Incarnate. What are your working hours like? I'm thinking we can meet in Gateway--I get off early on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If it's a Friday, it can be in the Ortigas area.

You have a copy? Is that DVD or VCD? Am looking for a copy to give me dad for his birthday and unfortunately, shops still only have the original VCD out. I had to order Dog Soldiers from abroad via a friend.

Drat, sorry about not answering your past comments. Still catching up.

I have a copy of Dog Soldiers, and my brother has The Descent (with the UK ending, which is good, as I would have felt crushed had I first seen the film with the US ending). Anyway, both are pirated DVDs, though I wouldn't mind picking up originals someday. Which was the one you looking for?

And don't worry about the comments!

Finally, if you get off work at 6-ish, then I guess we can meet on Monday or Wednesday. When I said my Tuesdays and Thursdays were early, I meant that they ended at...10:30 am! Let me know!

A friend and I were talking about caving recently and I chickened out. No, not because of the movie trailers (which by all reasonable terms should have done it) but because he talked about {gulp} cave spiders!!!

eldritch: That's cool. So hard to find a pirated copy of Dog Soldiers. Am currently looking for an original of The Descent so to match the other one.

Hehe 10:30 is a tad bit early for me. So if Monday or Wednesday, where do you want to meet? Same place?

livewire: Hey! I know what you mean. I once tried cave swimming and I found it utterly creepy; that and the water was sooooo cold. Brrr!

Neat movie - one of the most creepy flicks I've seen in a while. I haven't been able to get a hold of Dog SOldiers yet, though!

Hey JP! Good to see you alive! What ya been doing? And have you gotten my package yet?

will sit and have a date with The Descene maybe next week. I still have loads of school stuff to worry about.

Although recently, I popped Alien Ressurection into our player. Heheh. Just to take my mind outta some stuff, like the PSF II deadline
