The Descent Sunday, C4, 12.05am Geordie gorehound
Neil Marshall directed one of the best British horror films of recent years with this nail-chewing thriller about six women on a caving trip trapped underground in an unexplored cavern.
Eli Roth reasserts his position as leader of the "splat pack," an unofficial fraternity of directors dedicated to topping one another's stomach-churning antics, with "Hostel: Part II." His ultra-grisly pics may be an acquired taste, but Roth seems more than happy to feed auds' appetites for hardcore horror, taking three European tourists on a detour through his Slovak killing factory.
Even the most bloodthirsty gorehound
knows that originality is always the first victim when a sequel wields its machete.
