When they first try the weapons Paul says to Barabara that only three shots can be held in the shotgun chamber so make each shot count. At the end of the movie when he kills the monster he uses the same shotgun and fires off four shots in a row. See more »

Just another terrible monster-on-the-loose flick.
19 June 2001 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Oh yeah,"Watchers 2" is really bad,but certainly more enjoyable than "Grim" or "Haunted Sea".The acting is passable and the dog is smarter than every person in this movie.The monster is lame looking,the gore is almost non-existent and there's also no suspense at all.I still think that this one is slightly better than "Watchers"(1988)with its extremely laughable "monster",but not as good as "Watchers 3"(1994)-very stupid,but gory and fun to watch monster flick set in the jungle.Recommended,if you like this sort of stuff.
