Refusing to believe her story about cave-dwelling monsters, the sole survivor of a spelunking exploration gone horribly wrong is forced to follow the authorities back into the caves where something awaits.
A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.
Distraught, confused, and half-wild with fear, Sarah Carter emerges alone from the Appalachian cave system where she encountered unspeakable terrors. Unable to plausibly explain to the authorities what happened - or why she's covered in her friends' blood - Sarah is forced back to the subterranean depths to help locate her five missing companions. As the rescue party drives deeper into uncharted caverns, nightmarish visions of the recent past begin to haunt Sarah and she starts to realize the full horror and futility of the mission. Subjected to the suspicion and mistrust of the group and confronted once more by the inbred, feral and savagely ruthless Crawlers, Sarah must draw on all her inner reserves of strength and courage in a desperate final struggle for deliverance and redemption.

In the first The Descent movie, where Sarah was the only survival of a caving expedition, Neil Marshall (director and writer) chose to keep the ending open to different interpretations of the real cause of what happened. For me it is that open end that gave an added value to the first episode. Unfortunately someone, probably commercialism and money, decided to create a sequel. In any sequel the storyline is simplified to a brainless horror movie with a fairly guessable storyline.
There is also nothing to say about good acting or the development of characters.
If you have seen The Descent this sequel is certainly not worth it. But if you want to see a brainless horror with some jump-scenes it is acceptable.
