Best of the New Releases: The Descent: Part 2
Neil Marshall's creepy cave flick The Descent was an awesome piece of atmospheric, almost claustrophobic horror. Despite the protestations of Peter Hall, it's a very solid film, starring a group of strong women who make a couple of bad decisions and pay for them dearly. US horror fans have been awaiting the follow up, aptly named The Descent: Part 2 for a great many moons. The film hit the UK but was sadly passed over for US theatrical release. But all that changes this week as it finally hits DVD on this side of the pond.
Also new today is Dark Nature, a Troma release that the product description compares to The Shining and Long Weekend. A strange pair of comparisons, perhaps, but certainly an interesting one if nothing else. I love Long Weekend and obviously The Shining as well, and the cover art looks pretty serious compared to most other Troma releases that pop up on Netflix Watch Instantly.
Not to be outdone, The Aslyum is back this week with Megapiranha, which we mentioned last week since it stars 80s pop sensation Tiffany who also starred in Necrosis. It's from The Asylum and it's called Mega Piranha. That should tell you everything you need to know. If you got absolutely giddy at the trailer for Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, then this should be right up your alley.
