Horror films are not just about deadly monsters that spring up in the dark and serve you a good chill. It’s about being helpless in a situation that you find yourself in and struggle hard to survive. And it is this helplessness that makes the genre of horror so popular.
‘The Descent’ in 2005 added something more — the helplessness of the fairer sex as an all girls team gets stranded amidst a bunch of monsters.
The sequel, tries to do that, but ends up being a poor remake of a decent first film.
Chicago – Why does every successful horror film need a sequel? If they’re big enough, they usually come out theatrically, but there’s a whole sub-genre of straight-to-video follow-ups to horror hits, the latest being the truly bad “The Descent: Part 2,” a film that merely serves to enhance the reputation of the original by comparison.
DVD Rating: 1.0/5.0
The best thing about “The Descent: Part 2” is the set-up. It’s all downhill from there. Haven’t you ever wondered about the aftermath of a horror movie? The camera usually fades to black when the villain is killed or the hero is safe, but there’s clearly going to be a lot of questions and clean-up. What happens next is a common genre question and “The Descent: Part 2” cleverly picks up immediately after the end of Neil Marshall’s beloved film.
The Descent Part 2 was released on DVD on April 27th, »

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 OHerlihy) doesnt waste time.
