Descent 2 Poster

There are a handful of new posters out today (Me and Orson Welles, Edge of Darkness) but my favorite brand new one is this Japanese poster for The Descent 2. I love the designs that come out of Japan for promo materials and posters with intense close-ups and very dark colors, and this is one of those kinds of posters. I won't say it's the most original design I've ever seen, but I definitely love the look of it, especially the shot of the creature hidden in the lower right corner. I prefer that the creature is shown smaller so it doesn't give away too much or scare moviegoers. Anyway, check it out below thanks to ShockTillYouDrop!

We featured an early teaser trailer for The Descent 2 back in August, so definitely check that out as well!

The Descent 2

Distraught, confused, and half-wild with fear, Sarah Carter emerges alone from the cave system where she encountered unspeakable terrors. Unable to explain to authorities what happened - or why she's covered in blood - Sarah is forced back to the subterranean depths to help locate her missing friends.

The Descent 2 is directed by Jon Harris, who is making his directorial debut after working for over 10 years as an editor. The screenplay was co-written by newcomer James McCarthy and James Watkins, who also wrote and directed Eden Lake. The Descent 2 doesn't have a US distributor yet, although we might as well expect that Lionsgate, who distributed the original Descent, will release this sometime in 2009 or 2010.

Yeah that sucks. Sloppy and doesn't do anything to make me wanna see this even though the original is one of the best horror films in the last decade.

Lol @ not wanting to see a movie because of a poster, seriously grow up.

Yeah, he meant "crappy". Isn't it time to stick a fork in J-Horror?

Sequel to a movie that doesn't need one, original director having nothing to do with it, original writer having nothing to do with it, newcomer helmed to direct, newcomer helmed to write, and there's TWO of them. Yeah, does not bode well for this one. If it gets more people to see the original, then there's at least some good coming out of it.
