The Descent: Part 2 (movie review)

Thanks to Nuffnang for the invites to watch
The Descent Part 2
Date: 18 May 2010
Time: 9.30pm
Venue: Cathay @ Ecurve

In 2006, a British horror film called
The Descent was released in North America one year after its UK debut. It was a terrifying horror film, which scared people shitless as it took claustrophobia to a whole new level. Now 3 years later, they’ve once again released the sequel The Descent part 2 overseas .

Director : Jon Harris
Producers : Christian Colson, Ivanna Mackinnon & Neil Marshall (Executive Producer)
Writers : James Watkins, J. Blakeson and James McCarthy
Actors : Shauna MacDonald, Natalie Mendoza, Krysten Cummings, Joshua Dallas, Gavan O’Herlihy and Anna Skellern.

Plot :
The Descent: Part 2 picks up immediately after the events of the first film. Sarah (Shauna MacDonald) emerges alone from a cave system following an expedition with her five friends in the Appalachian Mountains. Distraught, injured and covered in the blood of her missing companions, she is incoherent and half-wild with fear. Skeptical about her account of the events and convinced that her psychosis hides far darker secrets, Sheriff Vaines forces her back into the caves to help locate the rest of the group. Trapped by falling rocks, the rescue party is driven deep into the caverns, and one by one the fate of the missing girls is revealed. Sarah struggles to stay alive and once again encounters the evil in the deep. However will she manage to escape back to the daylight?
Monster, are you afraid?
Human vs Monster
Her teeth is super shiny white. Darlie?
Personal Comment:
(SPOILER ALERT)
Bloody
This film is very gory and full with violence blood scene. But too bad, the blood seems a little fake, bright red color, which I don't think it is really disgusting to me. Head smashed, hands gone, fingers get nibbled and etc.

Not scary
It is predictable that the monsters jump in front of the camera, it is much less frightening.
It is quite frequent that the monster appear slowly, which makes the audience have a feeling of "no...no....no..don't shout"

If you are in a mood to watch terrifying movie with plenty of gore (blood scenes), this movie is still acceptable. But if you are those who loves getting horrified, I don't think you will enjoy.
*I did not watch the first part, so I can't compare part 2 with part 1*

Personal Rating:
Plot : 6/10
Violence : 8/10
Effect : 6.5/10
Terrifying : 7/10
Overall : 6/10
