Howdy !! Horror Hounds !! Axemasters back in the dungeon (boy its creepy down here ! Rather CAVE like really !! ) with another "Cavernous Cavalcade of Carnivorous Crazies" for you in ............ The Descent Part 2 !! Yes the terror continues under the Appalachians in the darkness ! here's the story line , in a nutshell .....................
|"You mean , we can't call long distance from down here !!?"|
Cut to a news broadcast talking about the search for a bunch of missing Spelunkers . It appears that Juno's father is a politician , and they're looking to find out what happened to her , and the rest of the gang ! Now , if you've seen The Descent 1 , then you know that Juno misled her caving companions about which cave system they were in , taking them into an entirely uncharted one . So , our team of rescuers , Dan , greg , and Cath , are looking in the wrong cave !! (Lucky for them ! ) As the worn out crew of rescuers take a break after having no luck , Sherif Vaines (played asshole-ishly well by Gaven O'herlihy !) gets the news that Sarah has popped up half way across the county ! He keeps it hush hush to avoid a Media feeding frenzy , and heads to the Hospital to question Sarah .
Once Vaines gets to the Hospital , he and officer Ellen Rios , quickly begin to feel that Sarah is hiding the truth about what happened down in the caverns . She can't remember the last two days , but Vaines (no doubt fueled by the best donuts and coffee in the Appalachians !!) sees her as the villain in the unfolding saga of the missing cave girls !
|"Dam Lumbago is acting up again !!"|
Once under ground , the rescue team begins to find out what really happened to the gang from Descent 1 ! Vaines of course holds onto his suspect as long as he can ! Sarah adapts to the gloom of the cave rather well and even gets a visit from an old friend down in the dark !! (No I won't tell you I won't I won't !! )
|"I said Medium Rare !!Dam It !"|
All in all though , I found it entertaining , with enough jumps and scares to chuckle at , and the Gore was abundant and well done . Its always hard to come up with part 2 of any flick , so I think we should be happy with this one .
But as always , Terror Trolls ! I leave the final decision in you hands !
So ..........Grab some popcorn , and a flash light ........... and delve into the deeper ..........Darker parts of our world ...................!!
Give us a call when you get back ! ,....... Or should I say .............
If ... You ....Get ...Back !!
