Welcome back to The Cinefessions Podcast! This month, Chris, Ashe, and Branden take on the entire filmography of English writer/director Neil Marshall. On the docket today is his debut feature, Dog Soldiers (2002), followed by the horror hit The Descent (2005). The post-apocalyptic thriller Doomsday (2008) is next, and we finish it off with a look at (the “and now for something completely different”) Centurion (2010).
Note that these retrospective episodes are filled with major spoilers for each film, and we highly recommend that you watch these films before listening to the show if you do not want major plot points, including the endings, spoiled for you. This episode also contains adult language.

Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
