Audio problem: In the scene where the Grabboid is pulling the truck with the chain attached and the guy is trying to shoot it, the gun noises do not match up with the muzzle flashes at all. At one point it is obvious he fires 2 shots, and yet 4 "bangs" can be heard.
Burt is called to take care of graboid trouble in Mexico. Two Mexicans find a split open graboid after their truck breaks down. They find the radio station torn to pieces and walking creatures attack them. They kill one and take off in a van. The girl at the town is attack by one and the Mexicans kill it. Burt arrives, out of ammo, and with a live Shrieker. They discover Shriekers heat-seek and reproduce by eating. A Shrieker that hitched a ride on Burt's truck and eats. Soon the town is overrun with Shriekers.
Trivia: Early in production, the film was reportedly intended to be a theatrical release as the first film became a huge hit on VHS and on cable. However, when original co-stars Kevin Bacon and Reba McEntire were unable to commit for various reasons, the budget was lowered and it became a direct-to-video feature. While this was initially disappointing, it paid off in the long run, as it launched a continuing franchise with a further five sequels and a popular (but short-lived) TV series.
