Dr. Herman Cromwell: [Cromwell explaining what he found out about Mars and why it got him locked up] I was doing research on a Mars meteorite.
Dr. Laura Baker: The one found in the Antarctic in '96?
Dr. Herman Cromwell: Fossils in the meteorite convinced us there might have been life on Mars. But these fossils weren't anything organic to the planet. Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
Dr. Laura Baker: And what was the basis for that determination?
Dr. Herman Cromwell: Carbon-based elements in the fossils, exist only in the Magellanic galaxy. That's 100 million light years away.

Adequate sequel with some good points
1 September 2011 | by GL84See 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
