The Terror Within II (1991)

** (out of 4)

Andrew Stevens co-wrote, directed and stars as David in this sequel to the 1989 cult film. This time out, there aren't too many humans who survived a nuclear fallout, which resulted in a number of mutants running the land. David meets up with a woman and soon team up with a colony to try and defeat the mutants once and for all.

THE TERROR WITHIN was one of the better low-budget ALIEN clones as it featured a terrific monster, a nice cast and some great gore effects. This sequel was obviously working with an even smaller budget but if you're a fan of this type of post apocalyptic film then there's plenty to enjoy here. There's no question that it falls well short of the original movie but there's still enough "B" movie fun here to make it worth watching.

I've always been a fan of Stevens so it was fun getting to see him play the tough action hero. When we first meet his character he's walking around with a full beard and playing with his lovable dog. From here he is given a love interest and it's pretty much all war from here. Stevens was certainly a lot of fun in the lead role but we also got nice support from the likes of R. Lee Ermey, Chick Vennera, Stella Stevens and Clare Hoak. Granted, these aren't Oscar-worthy performances but that's not what this film called for.

The action scenes are well-directed for the most part and Stevens manages to keep the film moving at a nice pace. Add in a little bit of nudity, some sex scenes and you've got the type of R-rated movie people would have wanted to rent back in the day. The creature effects aren't nearly as effective as the first movie but I did like the look of them here. There's also some nice blood and guts scattered throughout the film.

With all of that said, THE TERROR WITHIN II features a pretty basic and unoriginal story and there's certainly not enough tension to make it a complete success but it's an entertaining B movie.
