A barren U.S. landscape provides the setting for this futuristic film. Most of the population has been wiped out by a plague, and horribly mutated Mutatae roam freely, killing and eating whatever people are left.
When a Mutatus kills her brother, Ariel takes up with David, a Scientist looking for plant vaccine to ward off the plague. On their way back to the Rocky Mountain Space Lab, the two have sex, and before long, Ariel believes she's pregnant.
The two attach themselves to a cult in exchange for necessary plant vaccine; but, while David goes with the men looking for plants, the high priestess and her cohorts capture Ariel and offer her as a sacrifice to a Mutatus.
David returns, kills Ariel's detractors and escapes with her. In a short time, they arrive at the space lab.
Only eight or so people remain alive on the lab, and to ward off the plague, plant serum is vital. Hence, they welcome David's return with Ariel and the essential plants. However, the plague has already broken out among the crew and dissension mounts over the small amount of available vaccine.
A Mutatus appendage within the lab regenerates into a full-blown Mutatus who begins to stalk the crew. Moreover, even though she has only been pregnant a few weeks, Ariel has her baby. Her baby turns out to be a grotesque Mutatus, the result of her being raped subsequent to her relationship with David.
Even though the crew mobilizes to fight the two Mutatae and the plague, one after another either dies or is killed. Finally, David kills first one, then the other Mutatus with a flame thrower and his knife. Only David and Ariel survive.
The fornication scenes, cannibalism, carnage, and violence all make for an utterly revolting film. Especially obscene are the scenes of Ariel delivering her baby. Here, instead of experiencing joy and happiness at the baby's birth, there is anguish and fear as the nightmarish child enters the world.
THE TERROR WITHIN II reminds one of the Lord's comment in Genesis 6:5: "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination... of his heart was only evil continually ." No one needs to see such degrading moral filth, so flee from THE TERROR WITHIN II.
