THE DESCENT

(Comcast Free Movies) A British horror movie that leaves you exactly where you want to be at a flick about six outdoorsy women stranded in a cave underground — afraid of how in the dark you are, literally and otherwise. The setup is like a bad lesbian drama, but that’s a ruse for the suspenseful terrors lurking in that cave: highly evolved batmen looking for dinner. (R; runs through Dec. 26)

THE EXPENDABLES

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) Sylvester Stallone, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Jet Li, and many others star in a testosterone-fueled action orgy that wouldn’t be out of place on the Cinemax late-night schedule circa 1986. This is the closest thing to movie Viagra yet invented. It’s reprehensible. It’s stoopid violent. It’s a lot of unholy fun. Stallone directs. (R; runs through April 16)

STREET FIGHTER ½

(Cinemax on Comcast) Raul Julia’s bellowing, preening General Bison is a great villain, but “Street Fighter” is only a passable action fantasy (based on the video game). Jean-Claude Van Damme gets lost in the shuffle as leader of the strike force that must free hostages from Bison’s grip. A zillion supporting characters, each with a different fighting discipline, have their reasons for wanting to take out Bison, too. It’s splashy, feet-flying fun for a while, then spins its wheels. (PG-13; runs through Dec. 27)
