Celebrating its tenth year bringing us premières, some classics and a handful of unearthed gems in horror to London, last week’s FrightFest 2009 was arguably the best yet. Opening with Melissa George’s new film Triangle and screening Best Worst Movie, Colin, a remastered An American Werewolf In London and Clive Barker’s Dread, with filmmakers and actors in tow for films across the festival, excitement was building for one last film.
Closing the five day event, The Descent: Part 2 is the eagerly anticipated sequel to Neil Marshall’s critically acclaimed 2005 cave horror The Descent. Picking up moments after the original finishes, the sequel sees a team of rescuers journey back into the caves to rescue the friends stuck below ground in The Descent, struggling to fight off the demonic Crawlers roaming the eerie tunnels.
We can’t tell you how the film was until closer to it’s release in December but we’ll say it’s got just as many thrills as the original, leaving the FrightFest horror fans more than happy and shaping the franchise up perfectly for a third.
