More or Less On Par With the Original
8 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Larry Cohen's 1974 cult hit spawned this sequel which begins shortly after the events of the first film where the Davis baby has been captured and killed. Frank Davis is racked with guilt and becomes part of a secret society of parents who conspire to hide the mutant babies being born from government death squads who see the deadly children as a threat to national security. Things go awry when three of the mutants escape and go on a killing spree as the authorities close in. Cohen creates a moody, atmospheric film with the help of Rick 'An American Werewolf in London' Baker's horrific baby designs and Bernard Herrman's evocative score.
