Earl Bassett, now a washed-up ex-celebrity, is hired by a Mexican oil company to eradicate a Graboid epidemic that's killing more people each day. However, the humans aren't the only one with a new battle plan.
The new sequel finds Burt Gummer, who's dying from Graboid poison, and his son Travis at a remote research station in Canada's Nunavut Territory, where they must go up against a new batch of Graboids to save Burt's life.

The scene where the car is being swallowed into the soil was originally supposed to be longer, with Bibi Besch kicking out the front window, climbing on the hood and then getting submerged in the sand. However, the effect that was used to suck the car in wouldn't work properly, and there was no more nighttime to shoot the remainder of the scene. See more »
During the opening credits, after Bacon says, "Well, when I'm your age, I guess I'll forget what I eat, too," he walks around the tailgate of the truck and through a mic boom's shadow. See more »
What we have in this film is the atmosphere of some of the old 50's B movie classics with an 80's touch added,and very well done at that. We have unique and rather intimidating monsters,as well as a very unique cast of characters to battle them.While Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward may be listed as the leads,I think that Michael Gross practically steals the entire show.While it isn't flawless,it certainly is entertaining enough.I would recommend it to any fan of 1950's B horror films.It is well worth the rental and would be a good addition to anyone's library.
