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 »

Watch the first film again.
6 November 2003 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

The first ten minutes of this film are great ... but most people who are watching this sequel will quickly notice that it's just footage from the first film which starred Kyle MacLachlan.

Kyle's character, a good alien, kills off one of the bad aliens but not before it spawns. Time passes and another good alien teams up with the daughter of the star from the first flic.

What results is a film with little intrigue and no new concepts. They could have provided more insights into the alien races or maybe showcased some cooler alien powers or forms. The anticlamatic ending will leave many wondering why?

2/10 -- no Kyle, no story, no suspense
