Once they complete their mission to Mars, the astronauts receive a video message from the U.S. President. Later on in the film, when Colonel Carter Burgess Jr. reveals to Senator Judson Ross that Patrick Ross is involved in series of murders, a picture of the actual U.S. President at the time (Bill Clinton) can be seen hanging from the wall in the office. Several months have passed between the Presidents Video message and Colonel Carter Burgess visit to Senator Judson Ross. (Round trip to mars was 18 months.) Enough time for a presidential election to have take place See more »

User Reviews

Adequate sequel with some good points
1 September 2011 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

After returning from a mission to Mars, a team of experts' tracks down the infected astronaut carrying a parasitic alien before he can meet up and mate with a similar human/alien hybrid.

A very rewarding sequel to a fine original, this one turned out to be very enjoyable. By adapting a more straight-up storyline instead of dealing with all the science and facts, there's considerably more action in this one in terms of splattered victims which seems to be the main focus of the first half. With an increase of splatter, there's some great kills and creature make-up used during those scenes, and the tentacled beings covered in slime generate a lot of fun, especially bursting forth from people's stomachs or chasing around the ground which are good times. Several other scenes with the alien children shooting their cocoons together and the effects work there allows even more goopy, gory fun in conjunction with a continuation of fun kills, miraculous healing abilities from both creatures and copious nudity. There are some flaws here, though, namely the decision to allow the captured male into the quarantined zone with the girl when there's plenty of knowledge to indicate his goal is to mate with her, as well as the film's rather tacky CGI during the finale when the practical effects were working so well. It loses some steam in the middle where they keep coming up short in the quest to stop him rampaging and raping woman as they're always on the other end of it, but otherwise there's still a lot to like here.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Nudity, several Sex Scenes and attempted rapes
