The Descent Part 2 - Horror Movie Review

Updated on October 7, 2013

Descent Part 2

The original Descent directed by Neil Marshall who also did Doomsday and Dog Soldiers did a great job there and also set up the story to something which I didn't expect, a direct sequel to the original which is a brilliant idea as it continues the story of the first films and expands upon the characters from the original mixed in with some new characters thrown in to add to the body count.

The Descent Part 2 has all the gory elements of the first film and sets the setting just right for a sequel, set in the same underground cave system were most of the girls who went there to explore the uncharted caves met their deaths by some nasty underground cave dwelling monsters that'll eat anything.

Sarah the only survivor who emerged from the caves after fighting her way out covered with her friends blood can't seem to remember what happened and also can't explain this to the police, possible some kind of traumatic kind of memory loss thing. So the local sheriff makes her re-visit the underground cave in the hopes that it will jog her memory and find out if anyone of her friends are still alive, of course the sheriff thinks that she has killed all her friends and left them down there.

Well as you can guess when they all get down there in the cave they are picked off one by one until a few survive and Sarah has to make a sacrifice.

This film wasn't directed by Neil Marshall, instead Jon Harris has filled in and it's almost seamless as you wouldn't think that this is another director, the story is obviously more about Sarah as she left her friend to die after she discovered that she had an affair with her bloke and which resulted in her husband and daughters death a year previously.

It's about advancing the character and seeing how far she will go to make amends.

I liked this film as quite often some sequels are bad and shouldn't have been made, but this one had a great sense of the first film and brought with it a stroke of genius to continue right from the original film, of course it does go back to such films as Halloween and Friday the 13th that did that.

I'd recommend this movie for the horror fans.

      It is worth watching as it isn't a throw away sequel, it's part of the first ones story.
