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.
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
Earl points to a Playboy centerfold on his wall and says that it was Miss October of 1974. The real Miss October 1974 was Ester Cordet, a brown-haired Panamanian, in contrast to the blond Helen Shaver who, in the film, is supposed to be the woman in the photo. The actual centerfold seen in the film is of Miss September of 1970, Debbie Ellison. See more »
Kate dates the Graboid fossil to be from the Precambrian era. However, there was no life on land at the time, meaning the Graboids would have nothing to feed on. See more »
We have already contacted your partner, Señor McKee, but he was unwilling to help us...
Sure. Val married a good woman. Why would he want to die?

It's just not as good as the original. It has its moments, though. Nevertheless, the graboids ' evolution just seems to touch a comic ludicrousness that makes it more of a video hack line. So - so movie.
