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

Trivia

In addition to the shriekers designed by Amalgamated Dynamics, some scenes in the film utilized shriekers that were CGI designed by Tippet Studio, these animated shriekers were used whenever the shriekers are shown walking, running, or climbing as the movements we're beyond the capabilities of the fully-articulated puppet shriekers.

Goofs

When Burt fires the high-powered rifle and the window behind him blows out, you can briefly see a crewman inside striking the glass with a ball-peen hammer to shatter it. See more »

One of my all time favorites!
30 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

I really like this movie! I'm currently watching it on the USA channel right now! I like this movie more than the first one because it has much more humor to it. Whenever this movie comes on TV I'll watch it! This movie is brilliant. I hope there is a 3rd installment. Maybe this time have flying Graboids or something.
