We are sent back to the battlefield, as the Federation's best Mobile Infantry unit are slowly being overpowered by the killer bugs. They are light years from the nearest reinforcements and are trapped on a remote outpost. They set up protection around the post, keeping all the bugs waiting for them to leave. But now the enemy is in the outpost, in a way which they would have never thought of. Written by
The storm clouds are actually toilet paper tubes with cotton stuck to them, slowly rolled forward. They were darkened and layered digitally. See more »
When a trooper is dragged away during the attack on the outpost it is obvious she is being pulled by wires, as the bug is simply backing up with her. For much of the shot it is not even touching the trooper. See more »

A direct to video sequel of one of the greatest sci-fi epics of all time, this is exactly what you would expect: static, low budget, derivative, horribly acted and bearing only the slightest resemblance to the original. The FX are laughable, the acting atrocious, the plot straight out of many previous sci-fi ditties like THE HIDDEN and THE THING and BLADE RUNNER. One of the things that made the original such a masterpiece is that it is first and foremost a brilliant satire, and a sci-fi epic second. The sequel jettisons any attempt at satire and sticks several people on a single set for the majority of the flick. The only thing that makes it worthwile is some truly disgusting gore effects in the second half. Also, there is a ravishing if scary young blonde who is horny and nekkid in many of her scenes. Plus an amply endowed captain (who played a small role in the first movie) struts around in a very tight and very low cut wife beater in the second half.
