The Descent 2

http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/film/1325

It's back, and those confused by the ending apparently now have some closure. I'm looking forward to this, although Neil Marshall is not directing, he is involved and hopefully keeping everything in line.
Thoughts? Hrmmm?

im fairly certain the ending was left open to the viewers opinion as to whether she got out or not.

It was a dream. In the European/everywhere else version, she woke up in the cave hallucinating and the monsters we coming


edit- Actually, from what I read she gets out. The first one made it seem like she died.

It's gonna be interesting how they start it, because it seems like they'd have to make completely different movies for the UK and US releases. From what I've heard, supposedly Sarah is rescued, but when
her friends aren't there she's suspected of killing them, and a team of officials (police, whatever they are) make her go with them back into the cave to see what happened.


I loved the first one, it's one of the best horror movies I've seen in a while. I'm actually watching it again tonight with a bunch of friends, so I'm sure it'll get me pumped up for a sequel.

I was actually laying awake last night thinking about it, that's what prompted me to get online and find out about the sequel.
But I agree the ending was inconclusive and led you to believe

That sarah died in the caves

And I believe it should have stayed that way, From what i've read that's what Neil Marshall seemed to have wanted considering
that he is not back on board directing, just overseeing that someone doesn't ruin his good name.

I'm not typically a horror fan, but I loved the first one. Perfect formula for fear that so many movies in the past have done so horribly wrong. This one got it right.

Second could be **** though. We'll see...

Wait, did you see the UK or US version? Because in the UK Version, Sarah escapes, suddenly sees Juno in the car next to her (you remember, the Asian one), and then suddenly wakes back up in the cave,
meaning that her escape was just a dream. It ends with the sound of the creatures, signaling that they're coming.

However, the US version ends when she sees Juno in the car next to her and screams. In the US version, we're led to believe that she's escaped the cave, but has gone insane/is mentally unstable due to
basically leaving Juno to die in the cave. But she still escaped, which is what the second one if being based off of.

Interesting also, the movie is really very open for interpretation. A lot of people think that due to Sarah's husband's death in the beginning and everything like that, that the claustrophobia of the cave
actually caused her to go insane, and she only imagined the creatures. Instead, she actually killed her friends, although she believes the creatures to have done so.


Can't wait to see what they do on this second one.

i saw the UK version.
it wasn't a bad movie at all, but there's something about it that didn't appeal to me.
i'll definitely check out the second one though just to see where they take it

Well the dvd version has both endings that have been mentioned so I doubt they would have to make two versions.
