If you’ve never heard of The Velvet Underground then consider this an introduction. Here is a 60′s video flashback of their tune ‘Venus in Furs’ written by Lou Reed, which was released in 1967 and inspired by the book of the same name by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. The song is quite sinister, seductive and sexual in nature.

When it was finally released in the U.S in 2006, The Descent, directed by Neil Marshall, was one of the scariest movies to come out in quite some time. What made it so scary is the claustrophobic nature of the film, where five girls on a spelunking expedition get trapped below the earth with some horrifying mutated beasts.

The Descent had two endings. The first has the lead character Sarah, escaping the underground caves, while the other,which was the U.K. version, depicted Sarah daydreaming her entire escape.

The Descent 2 (2009), directed by Jon Harris, bypasses the U.K. ending entirely, and the film begins right where it’s predecessor left off. Sarah (Shauna Macdonald) has escaped the Appalachian cave system and is now in the hospital. The local sheriff and deputies are hell bent on keeping a lid on the disappearances of Sarah and her friends, which includes, Juno (NatalieJackson Mendoza), who happens to be a Senator’s daughter. So what do they do? Unbelievably, they are allowed to have Sarah discharged within hours of her being admitted to the hospital, so she can lead the deputies into the caves and help search for the other girls. Never mind the fact she has ‘amnesia’ and just went through a traumatic experience, your just suppose to suspend your belief system at this point. Maybe they bribed the doctor, who knows. But this is just a neat and tidy little way to show why on god’s green earth she would ever agree to going back down there with those creatures.
