Yesterday was held the very first French press screening of “
The Descent: Part 2”,
the efficient sequel of Neil Marshall 2005 spelunking claustrophobic
horror monster movie. This sequel marks the directorial debut of
Jon Harris, who worked for the last 15 years as an editor (He did in particular, Guy Ritchie’s “
Snatch”, Matthew Vaughn’s “
Layer Cake”, James Watkins’s “
