Storyline

When an army of Graboids - giant, carnivorous underground worms - threaten the Petromaya oil refinery in Mexico, its owners call on Earl Bassett, who once helped kill four of the creatures in Perfection, Nevada. Having squandered the money that came from his resulting celebrity status, Earl is convinced by the $50,000-a-head bounty offered, as well as the enthusiasm of admirer Grady Hoover, who becomes his partner. At Petromaya, Earl and Grady meet geologist Kate Reilly, and begin Graboid hunting, tricking several Graboids into swallowing bomb-rigged, remote-controlled cars. When they find they're facing a lot more Graboids than they ever expected, Earl calls his friend Burt Gummer, a survivalist who arrives well-stocked with weapons. Written by Todd Baldridge

Not the original, but still a lot of fun.
7 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

This time there isn't quite the cast used in the first one, in fact there are really only four main characters this time around. There also is not all that many kills, but still I enjoyed this one. It is one of those rare direct to video releases that is actually quite good. Fred Ward does return again, as does Michael Gross and they both are still very strong. This one has the infamous Graboids attacking some place down in Mexico I believe. Fred Ward's character is asked to come and help rid the area of these creatures as he has the knowledge to fight them and kill them. Well it proves to be to much of a challenge as there are a lot more of them than he anticipated so he enlists the aid of Gross's character. Well everything seems to be going down without a hitch, but something is not quite right. One of the monsters seems to have exploded from the inside and there seems to be another monster loose in the desert. Not the original as I have said, but it still works. Though I never saw part three cause it looks rather bad.
