Neil Marshall’s smart 2005 horror film, The Descent, still ranks as one of the better genre offerings over the past several years.Not content to just place its characters in jeopardy, Marshall actually fleshed out his group of female spelunkers who get lost in some underground caverns only to discover that they are not alone in the dark. Of course, since it turned out to be a minor hit for the studio, British studio Celador Films is in the process of bringing us a sequel. Of course, this new film will spin off the ending of the American version, not the slightly longer, and better, original British ending.
SlahsFilm has the first pictures from the film, which we’ve placed for your ease and convienance, in the gallery below. The storyline of the sequel has Sarah (Shauna MacDonald), the only survivor of the previous expedition, being forced to accompany a rescue party back into the Appalachian cave system to attempt to find her friends whom the authorities presume are simply missing. Anyone familiar with how the British edit of the movie ended will probably see what is wrong with that premise.
Oddly enough, the film still has no US premier date but will hit theaters in the UK on May 15th.
