Storyline

The alien criminal from the first movie is dead, but he left a few eggs which are hatching now. The good alien, who still inhabits Tom Beck's body, has been waiting just in case this happened. Unfortunately, his presence in the body has taken a terrible toll on it, draining it of life energy. Additionally relations with Beck's daughter Juliet (now a cop) have deteriorated. But when the killing starts again, they will need to work together to stop the new generation of aliens. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

Trivia

The entire opening 15 minutes of the movie (except for some shots of a dog becoming "infected" by the alien parasite) are the final 15 minutes of The Hidden (1987). See more »

Goofs

The good guy is shooting a 9mm at the alien the kitchen. When he runs out of ammo, he pulls the trigger twice and the hammer falls on an empty chamber twice. Note also that the slide doesn't lock back. That's not how a 9mm works. See more »

Respect your time and your life and avoid this turkey!
27 May 2007 | by (New York,NY USA) – See all my reviews

I really don't know where to begin. I saw The Hidden in the movie theater when it was released in 1987 and loved it. I was in the public library and saw it on DVD with The Hidden II as a second feature so I went and borrowed it. I loved seeing The Hidden again and was pleasantly surprised it actually got better with age! The Hidden is really an amazing film.

Then it was time to watch The Hidden II. I sensed there was going to be a problem when fifteen minutes of the original was edited into the opening of this feature. I just knew it but held my breath anyway and hoped it would get better. It didn't. The Hidden II is a paint-by-the-numbers quickie probably made to create some quick cash revenue before anyone got word of how bad this film was. New Line Cinema should be ashamed of them selves. There is no one in the executive positions at New Line Cinema who saw this could not not know that this was an inferior product and yet they released this excrement on loyal fans of the original The Hidden anyway. Shame on New Line Cinema.

Do yourself a favor and forget this was made. Enjoy the original and pretend this turkey was never made. Trust me you are not missing anything!
