Well, the first DVD I snatched up off the Connoisseur's List of Horror and Mayhem provided so thoughtfully to me by Sammy, c.u. and dte, was The Descent(Sammy's rec, I believe) and we watched it Thursday.

Ye gods, man! Thank god I don't have a heart condition. That was one of *the* scariest movies I've ever seen—and my spouse—who isn't fazed by Clive Barker or Hannibal Lector and …giggled..twice during Saw—was sweating blood on the sofa—oh, he pretended to be cool, but we who have lived with the testosterone endowed learn to recognize the rigid, masklike look of concealed terror. I actually found the earlier, pre-CHUD moments as they traversed the tiny tunnels scariest, but the prize goes to the ending, for avoiding the horror cliches. I woke up at 5 a.m. yesterday and stuck my head under the covers cuz I was visualizing a little girl handing me a birthday cake!

Thanks, Sammy. You done good.
