Attention all horror fans

I don't normally do this, but I want to recommend a movie. I only mention it because I haven't seen any ads for this yet, and I'd hate for people to miss it because they don't know about it. It's called The Descent, and it's coming out today. I happened to get lucky and see it a few weeks ago, knowing nothing about it, and enjoyed it immensely. I don't want to give too much away, but it's about 6 spelunkers who go down into a cave, and things go wrong. It's tense all the way through - it's already scary before the horror movie genre stuff kicks in. If you're tired of slow-moving Japanese ghost women and/or scratchy-looking torture-fests, and just want to see a finely crafted horror film, check out The Descent.

Coincidentally, I recently recovered a painting I did last year for a show at a store called Robocon. I think it demonstrates quite vividly why I'm not making a living as a painter, but I enjoyed painting it. It's cel vinyl on illustration board, for those that wonder about stuff like that.

Great poster, Ben! I've been singing the praises of Descent goodness around work as well. With you working here now, maybe we can double-team 'em!
