Storyline

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.

Trivia

Originally, most of the other original cast members, besides Sarah, from the first film were set to return for this movie--some in flashbacks, dreams and possible hallucinations. In the end, executive producer Neil Marshall suggested to director Jon Harris to go about bringing the original cast to use through Holly's camera instead. See more »

Goofs

(at around 35 mins) While Cath is trapped on the other side of the fallen boulders, we can see a knee-high rock to the right of Dan's leg slightly move as he is rescuing Cath. See more »

Underrated
31 July 2020 | by johnjanisSee all my reviews

For a sequel this is surprisingly good. The shock factor is gone admittedly but the filming is not as dark so you see more of the creatures and it's probably even gorier than the first one too. If you enjoyed the first one then really there is no reason you won't like this as well.
