Storyline

On their way back home during the spring break, Darry and Patricia Jenner witness a mysterious person dumping something down a tunnel. Deciding to discover what was dumped down there, Darry discovers a huge disturbing hideout full of modified bodies. Darry and Patricia set off to get help, unaware that the individual is now aware of who has been down the tunnel. Darry and Patricia soon realizes that their pursuer is not just a mysterious person, but something even more horrifying, who has more in store than they could possibly imagine. Written by FilmFanUK

Alternate Versions

On the German Code 2-DVD (Platinum Edition) by MAWA/VCL (and perhaps the VHS as well) you can't hear the screaming of Darry/Justin Long when the Creepers tortures him. The screaming has been removed on the dubbed versions. But you can hear it softly if you tune in to the audio commentary by the director (who also comments the screams). See more »

I re-watched this last night, I remembered not liking it when it first came out, but I thought maybe I had judged it wrongly. It's got quite a few major plot holes and the special effects havent held up well, BUT it is a good fun creature feature. I always Enjoy Justin Long and he does well in this. It's scary enough to enjoy but tame enough that I'll watch it with my kids when they're a little older.
