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.

Wow!!!!
1 October 2011 | by trevixaramaSee all my reviews

I was honestly ready for this movie to be a complete fail for a film not only because of several different reviews iv read but also because of other movies that try making a second and change the setting and the main characters but keep the story in which the descent 2 did not do. They used the same actresses, the same setting, they did not change anything or add anything unnecessary they just sent a search party after the climbers which is realistically what they would do. On top of that it let's you know what happens to Juno since you don't see her die in the first one. It takes place a couple days after they all went out so it doesn't just randomly start somewhere. And they are underground blind creatures, I think people expect and just want to see extremely epic deaths but think about their surroundings and the creatures nature, the are limited to what they can do and how they kill you. I was ready for this movie to be a let down, it's been in mi face and I wasn't going to watch it because I didn't want to be disappointed but I finally decided to watch it and I'm really happy I did. I would say if you like the first one, watch it. In my opinion it doesn't take it to far.
