What did Juno do that was that bad? S.A. Bradley of the Hellbent For Horror podcast joins the show for an unlikely candidate for our longest episode of all time - Neil Marshall's spelunking-gone-wrong film, The Descent. We dive deep into the echoes of Deliverance (almost literally in the case of a radio station switch bit early in the film), Neil's career trajectory, the drastic difference in me viewing the film in my college years vs. today, the extraordinary accomplishment of a full 45 minutes of straight drama before the monsters appear, and just generally marvel at the incredible craftsmanship of this modern classic.
