    Shauna Macdonald returns as Sarah, continuing the story of 2005’s hugely successful horror thriller The Descent, in which a group of young women disappear during a caving trip in the Appalachian Mountains.

    Emerging from the cave system alone, distraught and covered in the blood of her missing companions, Sarah is incoherent and half-wild with fear. Sceptical about her account of events and convinced Sarah's psychosis hides far darker secrets, Sheriff Vaines (Gavan O'Herlihy) doesn't waste time. Along with his partner Rios (Krysten Cummings), and their cave rescue team Dan (Douglas Hodge), Greg (Joshua Dallas), and Cath (Anna Skellern), Vaines forces Sarah back into the caves to help the rescuers find her friends.

    Alongside Macdonald, "The Descent: Part 2" also features Natalie Mendoza reprising her role as Juno. Krysten Cummings, Anna Skellern, Gavan O'Herlihy ("Seven Days of Grace"), Joshua Dallas ("Ghost Machine," "Doctor Who") and Douglas Hodge ("Mansfield Park") also star.
