I don’t think I can do this again. The Descent was one of the scariest movies I’ve seen in recent years. From the enclosed spaces and the darkness to the hideous creatures and that God-awful sound they make, just about every second was scary.
Bloody Disgusting has the news on the casting for The Descent 2. Shauna MacDonald and Natalie Mendoza are returning from the original cast, and they will be joined by Gavan O’Herlihy, Joshua Dallas, Anna Skellern, Douglas Hodge, and Krysten Cummings (all people I’ve never heard of).
I’m not necessarily against a sequel – I don’t think the movie needs a sequel, but that’s never stopped movie-makers before. I just don’t think I can sit through another claustrophobic minute of that setting. I even bought the first one on DVD, and never watched it.
