the descent part 2 image11 First Trailer For The Descent: Part 2A sequel to The Descent, as unwarranted as it is, will probably pique the interests of most horror fans everywhere regardless if they want another one or not.

We got our first look at it with a bunch of images last month, but now we get a more in-depth feel of it with the first trailer.

Check it out below, but be warned it’s pretty gory:

Now I don’t want to go on a rant again about how much I think a sequel to the horror masterpiece that is The Descent is a terrible idea, but let me just say that this trailer has further proven my point. Although not as horrible as it could have been (mind you that’s going just by this trailer… who knows how it’ll end up) it still looks bad.

Granted, the last 15 seconds or so of this promo look pretty bloody and disgusting as the first film was for most of the second half, but the first two minutes of the promo hints at one of the things I was afraid they were going to do: Making it about a new set of characters other than those in the first film, getting rid of a lot of the darkness that was part of the reason the first was so scary and changing it to be a bit more like an action horror rather than a straight horror.

As I’ve said plenty of times before this is a film that should never have been made and by the look of the trailer they haven’t justified the decision to do so.

But what do you think of the trailer? Do you agree this further proves the point that they shouldn’t have made a sequel or does it provide hope that it could be decent?

The Descent: Part 2 is set to open on June 15th in the UK and there’s no word on a US release date as of yet.

  1. Dont even want to watch it cause just dat pic makes me want to barf

  2. Gee, a lone survivor makes it back and is rescued, only to be taken back by the authorities to find out what happened.
    Deja Vu…
    Sounds alot like Aliens underground to me
    But on the upside it’s good to see they are tying it into the first film and not having a completely seperate bunch of people going down for a repeat of the first film.
    And regarding your comment of how they are changing it from horror to action horror, didn’t they do that from Alien to Aliens and it was a big success, no one complained then!
    I’ll give this one a go on DVD as I have seen alot worse than this

  3. I actually wonder if it will end up going straight to DVD.

  4. well I will be the voice of decent(lol). I actually look forward to Decent 2. I am a fan of the action horror Genre (Aliens, Predator, etc)so i am hopeful that D2 will be able to pull this off. I think the movie industry is lacking in this field. Yes we have horror and we have action…..but action horrors are fairly rare.

    So take that. :)

  5. The first one definitely had it’s moments but there’s only one word to describe this one,

  6. @Paul,

    I just KNEW someone was going to throw Alien/Aliens at me as a response:P Touche, indeed. However the jarring change from straight up suspense horror to action horror is rare that it works out well and I doubt The Descent 2 will be one of those rarities.
