60 years after what happened in The Rizen, a quintet of youngsters - Grace (Harriet Madeley), Steve (Kevin Leslie), Maddie (Sophie Miller-Sheen), Adam (Marcus Bronzy) and Becca (Clarice Burton) - decide to investigate the facility the earlier movie has taken place in, not really for any particular reason, just because it's there, and it's a top secret yet unguarded abandoned army facility, and of course the youngsters are oblivious to the place's history. Now the place is properly spooky, but nothing much actually happens other than Grace has a few visions, which all might be figments of her imagination triggered by the place of course. And then, pretty much out of the blue Becca disappears ...

Sergeant Davies (Michael Fatogun) and his team of mercenaries (Sarine Sofair, James Barnes, Lewis Saunderson, Connor Williams) are hired to get the youngsters out of the facility, and Davies is given a notebook that's supposed to be a manual for the facility, but that he fails to understand as it's all in Latin. Once Davies and company are in the facility though, they're attacked and slowly decimated by any number of blind and bandaged carnivorous creatures, so much so that their mission to remove our youngsters from the place becomes secondary. The youngsters though try their best to stay out of the mercenaries' way - but it's only when they join forces that they start to have a fighting chance against the creatures. And it eventually turns out that Grace knows much more about this than she has let on - and in fact that she is even aware of herself. But she gets messages from beyond originating from Frances (Laura Swift) from the first movie - informations vital not only for survival but to save the world from an evil originating from a gate to Hell the military tried to open 60 years ago - and that apparently hasn't been fully shut yet ...

 

A nice sequel to The Rizen that really finds something new in the concept without betraying the original, and while it loses the absurd qualities of the earlier movie, it works really well as a horror-action hybrid that gets the most out of the movie's claustrophobic settings, while on a story side it's cleverly structured to only by the by give away its information for the audience to piece together, this way keeping the tension high throughout. And a dynamic direction and a very able cast make this pretty cool genre entertainment.
