Plot Summary

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.

Did You Know?

Edit
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 (at around 1h 2 mins) The film is set right after the first one, in 2005. Rios records her video message to her daughter on a Nokia N81 phone. The N81 wasn't released until 2007. See more »
