THE DESCENT Part 2 (Theatrical Release 2009 UK)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Descent Part 2, although intending to deliver horror, lacks the quality to generate that emotion as effectively as Saw (2004), Saw II (2005), or The Forgotten (2014). The film asks for its sequel, but fails in its delivery to the point where a sequel seems unnecessary.

Storyline

A rescue party makes a descent into the cave to attempt rescue of Sarah Carter’s (Shauna Macdonald) original spelunking team.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Jon Harris for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Neil Marshall and Paul Smith for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Ed Oswald (Michael J. Reynolds), Susanne Small (Jessika Williams), Dan (Douglas Hodge), Greg (Josh Dallas), Cath (Anna Skellern), Vaines (Gavan O’Herlihy), Ellen Rios (Krysten Cummings), Doctor Roger Payne (Doug Ballard), Lynch (Josh Cole), Rebecca (Saskia Mulder), Juno Kaplan (Natalie Mendoza), Beth (Alex Reid), and Holly (Nora Jane Noone).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. This movie fails to deliver strong, realistic horror.
