THe ending where she escapes, drives into a tree etc and then wakes up led on the floor in th cave chatting to her dead daughter is the Good ole Blighty version. when in the final scene you see her run off with a dimming torch. The bad ole Johnny Foreigner version is nowhere as near as good and ends when she stares up at the pile of bones and escapes from what i can remember. Probally just after it fades up to black there is a fanfare and probally someone waiting for her with a space blanket and mug o cocoa.

An early story synopsis I read goes like this:

“The protagonist escapes from the nightmare creatures but returns along with a special forces team to kick ass“

Sounds familiar? Thought so…

I don't understand this - in both edits she DOES NOT DIE. While it might be suggested that she's proper fucked and down there until she falls asleep and starts snoring, and quickly turned to scran, she could still get out there from the UK cut.

My beef with this is Marshall not being in the director's chair, could turn out proper wank if they get some novice fekker. First one was mind-bastard wreckingly superb, and anyone who says different should be banned from a film forum and left to rot in porn website chat rooms talking to dirty old men pretending to be hot young chicks.

Meh! I said on the original review they should make a sequel where she returns with loads of Marines... only this time the beasties have learnt how to make spears and shit to even it up...

I so disappointed by the Descent. i know Neil marshall is a friend to the critcis but you'd pumped his film up so much I was expecting wonderful things. in fact it was a poor film at best and not in the least bit scary.

Monsters that can't see, hear (screaming girls) or distinguish between a rock and someones head are just laughable.

Descent 2 is going to be rubbish (as was Doomsday by the way!).

The UK ending was sh*t. Give me the US ending any day.

I get fed up with horror films where you seemingly have to have no one make it out alive. Life is sh&t enough as it is without having to be reminded of it at the cinema.

As opposed to the cliche of having the protagonist escape but be confronted by a dead character sitting next to them? Thats hardly a unique ending.

I got this out on rental when it was first released so i assume this was the UK version but she makes it out alive and by the sounds of it that only happened in the US version, does anybody know what version we got over here because i'm well confused??? Also where can you get the uncut version from?

I know folks are entitled to thier opinion but how can anyone think the US ending is better than the UK one?

**SPOILER ALERT***

Lets see, you've lost your husband and daughter in a car crash, one year later you go exploring caves, you get caved in, become lost, get attacked by underground cannibals, your friends get eating, you find out your husband was actually cheating on you with your friend and have to fight for your life to escape. Only American audiences would expect her to escape and get on with her life as normal. No psychological trauma or anything. Go home and have a cuppa. No problem.

Dont you see it was actually better for her to die than to live and remember all that shit for the rest of her life?

Well thats my opinion anyway, maybe I'm wrong but thats just what I think.
