A chubby sheriff forces a traumatized girl into a cave again, in which she nearly died shortly before? This causes her to scream in surprise and attract the attention of the crawlers.

Then they find the camera, used in part one and you get proof that those monsters were not hallucinations of Sarah, they're on Film. It's a gory Horrormoie with some nice bloody scenes in it. Greg sacrifices himself to buy time for Cath, but she ultimately does not survive. In fact, one scene at the end tries to tie up a major story thread from the previous movie, but it simply comes off as tacky and against the grain of the characters we have come to know.
