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 »

The sequel better than the original film and has more special-effects.
20 April 2011 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

It seems obvious these reviewers are biased and haven't seen the film before they dare to criticize it.

The story continues from The Hidden 1987 film.

The alien criminal from the first movie is dead, but he left a few eggs which are hatching now. The good alien (Lloyd Gallagher), who still inhabits Tom Beck's Michael Welden 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 (Kate Hodge) (now a cop) have deteriorated (possibly due to his bizarre behavior caused by the alien inhabiting inside his father). But when the killing starts again, they will need to work together to stop the new generation of aliens.

Seth Pinsker directs this film competently. The actors do their jobs well. The script which is also written by both Jim Kouf and Seth Pinsker is well done. The background music score is also good.

All in all: a worth addition and excellent sequel. Buy both The Hidden and The Hidden 2 for your collection.
