Movie Review: Descent

This was one of those movies that I had no interest in upon seeing the original trailers, but the trailers I saw AFTER the movie had left theaters made it look interesting. In this one case I should have listened to the original trailers.

A group of 20-something women gets together every few months to do some wilderness adventure event. In the beginning of the movie the event is whitewater rafting. The main event is cave exploring. But the woman leading the pack doesn't want to bother with the "tourist" spelunking areas and leads them into some unexplored caves. There's some suspenseful climbing events that eventually lead them to the land of the Golums. There's a race of sub-humans living down there that eat people. They look a bit like scarier versions of Golum from Lord of the Rings. They're pale, blind, vicious, carnivorous creatures that navigate by sound.

They eat the women.
