Remember how in the original UK cut of The Descent no one made it out of the cave and it was bleak and unsettling but in the American cut, one girl made it out and they ended on a lame jump scare?
Well, if you’re going to be paying any mind to the sequel, The Descent 2, then it looks like that American ending was the way of it and it’s being used for a jumping-off point for a film that looks…well…rather dumb.
Much of the earlier segments of the trailer deal with the police investigation for the girls and then, all of a sudden, one of them shows up, looking like hell and understandably traumatized. The rest that follows is just a little bit on the side of ridiculous and it looks as if it’s purely existing to directly mimic scares from the original.
Just another reason to hate the American ending of the first. I don’t think I’m looking forward to this one.
