Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Watchers II (1990)

Directed by:
Thierry Notz

In a virtual remake of the first film (minus the kid character, a good idea), a Marine (Marc Singer) teams up with an "animal psychologist" (Tracy Scoggins) and a super-intelligent golden retriever (played by "Dakai") to stop a giant, mutant lizard monster. It's about on par with the first film; standard issue horror-action with the best scenes belonging to the canine star. Roger Corman also produced of this one. Director Notz had previously made the similarly themed monster movie THE TERROR WITHIN (1988). With Jonathan Farwell, Irene Miracle, John Lafayette, Tommy Hinkley, porn actress Raquel Rios (aka Keisha) and Mary Woronov as a doctor.
