The Descent
(1) They were experienced spelunkers so the correct answer is no. (2) The cave was located in the Appalachian Mountains. The girls thought they were going to the Boreham cavern. (3) Don't go wandering off. (4) There were claw marks on the wall. (5) The creature could have been illuminated with a flashlight, the light on Sarah's headgear, a flare, one of the fluorescent tubes, a cigarette lighter or a torch. The camera lens was another option. The jury's still out on the prosperous in the rocks.

(6) The females had hair, the males did not. (7) As Neil Marshall explained in the film's commentary, the girls' scent was masked by the stench of rotting flesh. (8) "You heard something, and you saw what you wanted to see. It's the dark. It plays tricks on people." (9) Yes, she was.
(10) One creature had its eyes gouged out. Another had its neck broken. The others were stabbed to death with a bone and bludgeoned to death.


Deep Rising
They used their massive jaws to crush their prey then "drink" them alive, sucking out all of the fluids before excreting the skeletal remains.

Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

but they were well aware of the other risks. Were any of those beyond their capability?

2. You'd probably get two different answers if you asked someone where the cave was located and where the girls thought they were going, unless they thought they were one in the same. That's what we're expecting here.

3. File a flight plan and stick to it. That was Rule #1. What was the group's second rule?

4. Some telltale sign of the crawlers' existence was found near the cave's entranceway. Do you remember what it was?

5. Here's a question that must have come up during the film's production: "What should we use as a light source when we unveil the first crawler?" It could have been done seven different ways. Name four.
Deep Rising
Stephen Sommers, 1998
If you're stupid enough to venture into a cave system alone or one that's inhabited by creatures that want to eat you, at least tell someone where you're going and when you'll be back. The girls didn't know what lurked in the cavern they descended into
If you've ever stared down the gullet of an octopus and lived to tell about it, you probably saw the last thing its favorite food usually sees - a rough, tongue-like appendage that's used to scrape out every juicy morsel. How did the creatures in Deep Rising devour their prey?
Neil Marshall, 2005

6. Let's say the crawlers were only seen from the neck up. One could still tell the difference between the males and the females of the species if one knew that the latter had this and the former did not. What distinguishing trait are we referring to?

7. The crawlers had a highly developed sense of smell. Yet, they couldn't seem to find the girls when they were literally right under their nose. Why?

8. There's usually a rational explanation for everything. Juno's (Natalie Mendoza) explanation for what Sarah (Shauna Macdonald) saw made sense - to anyone who's never had a close encounter with a crawler.

9. In nature, it's the survival of the fittest. Holly (Nora-Jane Noone) became the weakest link when she fractured her leg. Was she the first to die?
10. The group used every piece of equipment at their disposal to dispatch the creatures but not every crawler was slain with a pick or a blade. How were the others killed?
