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>

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 »

Creepy effects, horrible acting
4 December 2005 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the creepy special effects, especially the crawling alien wormoids. They were puke inducing gross. Unfortunately, the acting was gross too, but not in a good way. Raphael Sbarge has to be one of the most annoying actors to ever play a lead role. Just his bizarre facial smirks and wooden delivery of his lines made me think of Booji-Boy from a DEVO music video. The daughter of Tom Beck was about eight years old in the first movie and fifteen years later (2002) she looks about thirty years old. Even though the movie is set in 2002, it was filmed in 1994 and it was hard to ignore that most of the vehicles on the streets were in new condition but they were ten or fifteen years old by the standards of 2002. I guess nobody bought any new cars after 1994? Was that part of the alien plan? Apparently the whole idea of putting the movie in 2002 instead of 1994 was so that Detective Tom Beck could get old and so the new alien could make love to his daughter. Kind of a creepy plot twist if you ask me. This is not a spoiler since it happens early on and they are teamed-up during the whole movie. Which brings up the fact that the first fifteen minutes of this film is old footage from the first movie. Not a different shot (they could have used an alternate take or the view from another camera angle), but it was straight out of the first movie.

Worst of all, once again a dog eats the alien scraps. Using a dog one time was kind of clever, but the second time it was a sign that the well had gone dry. Now most cities have stray dogs, but I have never read any reports that a stray dog has ever gone to the scene of a police shooting and eaten a piece of the dead body and then run away. Who knows, maybe it happens all the time.
