U.S. viewers were robbed: British director Neil Marshall’s spelunking shriekfest The Descent lost about a minute at the end, making its dark, trippy vibe less extreme. Now we get all the shadowy horror of six muscle-laced women’s underground encounter with an infuriated clan of ”crawlers.” Want the less-deadly theatrical experience? Stop the disc at 1:34:15.

EXTRAS The revise tested better in the States. Says Marshall: It ”offers a degree of hope,” which seems less a comment on his creative compromise than on our tastes.
