The Descent (Unrated Widescreen & Fullscreen, R-rated Fullscreen special editions, Blu-ray): Lionsgate

On an annual extreme outdoor adventure, six women meet in a remote part of the Appalachians to explore a cave hidden deep in the woods. Far below the surface of the earth, disaster strikes when a rock fall blocks their exit and there’s no way out. The women push on, praying for another exit, but there is something else lurking under the earth. The friends are now prey, forced to unleash their most primal instincts in an all-out war against an unspeakable horror – one that attacks without warning, again and again and again.

German import from director Jörg Lühdorff is a sequel to his 2001 made-for-TV opus, REVENGE OF THE RATS. Same cast, same villains…same conclusion?

Sheitan (special edition): Tartan (TEX’S PICK OF THE WEEK)

On Christmas Eve, a group of young guys meet two gorgeous girls who invite them to spend the weekend in the country, where they meet Joseph (Vincent Cassel, Irreversible), a creepy, unkempt man whose pregnant wife remains hidden in the large house. That evening, what begins innocently as Christmas dinner turns into disturbing conversations about sex, satanic possession, and incest. Joseph’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic and the young friends realize their host has made a pact with the devil and all hell is about to break loose.

Usurping this week’s release of THE DESCENT (which you’ve all seen anyway) I dare you to spend your holidays with the freakiest Frenchman since HAUTE TENSION. My new pick for the most fucked up holiday film of all time. Check out the trailer below:
