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.
