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

The original draft of the script featured an alternative opening, which would have addressed the inconsistency between the different versions of the first film (the U.S. version omits the final scene, where it is revealed that Sarah's escape from the cave was a hallucination). The opening scene would have shown Sarah following a vision of her daughter into an abyss and ending up in a lake that would take her outside the cave. This explains why the dog used to trace Sarah's steps later in the film stops at the lake, rather than the side of a mountain as per the ending of the U.S. version of the first movie. See more »

Goofs

Dirt on Sarah's face (her right side, mouth/cheek area) comes and goes between shots as she is sitting and talking to the rescue team underground. See more »

Should be credited to Alan Smithee
26 April 2010 | by Flesh_LivesSee all my reviews

Awful from the beginning to the end.

I really loved the first Descent where claustrophobia, women and crawlers were a pretty scary mix! Part 2 is scary, but not for the same reason.

Everything is cheaper. There's spots in the cave (WTF!) ans monsters aren't scary anymore... Acting is weak and the director should have take some lessons from a real director.

Monsters are more human like and not as ferocious as the first crawlers.

Anyway, what a deception!
