As a gleefully gory and totally nuts and bolts horror flick, Descent 2 is everything that it wants to be. But that's less than I can say for the fans of Neil Marshall's jaw dropping, heartbreaking origin...

Gruesome. Disgusting. Suspenseful. Scary. Fun to watch!!! The rare sequel that is almost as good as the original.
