SynopsisThe sequel will continue the story of Sarah, who as the only survivor of an all-female caving expedition gone horrifically wrong, suffers severe psychological trauma. Unable to speak, she accompanies a rescue team back to the cave, but events once again take a sinister turn.
THE DESCENT 2 picks up immediately after the events depicted in THE DESCENT.
Emerging from the cave system alone, distraught and covered in the blood of her missing companions, Sarah is incoherent and half-wild with fear. Sceptical about her account of events and convinced Sarah's psychosis hides far darker secrets, Sheriff Vaines (Gavan O’Herlihy) doesn’t waste time. Along with his partner Rios (Krysten Cummings), and their cave rescue team Dan (Douglas Hodge), Greg (Joshua Dallas), and Cath (Anna Skellern), Vaines forces Sarah back into the caves to help the rescuers find her friends.
Sending blood-splattered Sarah MacDonald) back into the caves of the Appalachian Mountains is an odd premise for a sequel to Neil Marshall’s 2005 cave-diving chiller The Descent – odd on account of her not actually escaping her subterranean ordeal the first time out.

Shorn of this downbeat conclusion for its North American release though, Sarah makes good her escape and director Jon Harris uses this as his jumping off point for the sequel. However, this departure from Marshall’s narrative lineage isn’t the only difference between Parts 1 and 2 as Harris’s film is an altogether very different creature. …Read More
