The Descent, written and directed by Neil Marshall and released in 2005, is widely considered one of the best horror movies of the 21st Century. The sequel, 2009’s The Descent Part 2—not so much. While we may never see a 3rd Chapter, there’s no denying that the films, and the creepy creatures that inhabit them, have had a huge impact on our genre.
Neil Marshall is currently helming Hellboy, a reboot of the franchise launched by Guillermo Del Toro. While it’s a more fantastic project than the filmmaker’s past works, we can expect Marshall’s horror sensibilities to affect Hellboy’s themes and aesthetic.
