    So ridiculous and over the top it's kind of hilarious. Some parts are so ludicrous you can't help but laugh and have fun with the whole thing.

    almost as good as the original skipped the 2nd one knowing it didn't do as well this one deals with an evolutionary allegory on abortions on deformed infants; is it within our right to kill the unsightly and the dangerous at such a young age or can a new breed of humanity co-exist with us? the monstrous, bloodthirsty creatures multiply by the hour and society feels that the best solution is to isolate them on a deserted island soon though they escape thanks to a still-caring father who believes they can live just like us it's too bad there isn't as much of the creatures but the idea is still there dealing with the harsh decision on whether or not to kill your own good kills with some allegory on newborns and their fate not a bad sequel

    More annoying than anything else. The characters (particularly the father), the editing (a scientist very much alive in one shot is two cuts later dead as a doornail)... it just makes Part 3 a chore to watch. Clearly Larry Cohen was more concerned with getting a free vacation in Hawaii than making a good movie.

    Parenthood can be a truly rewarding experience. A US court orders the mutated babies be put on an island to live on their own. Surviving mutants hijack a boat and return to find their parents five years later. A step down from the first two.

    By far the best of the series. It takes a Lost World/Jurassic Park twist on the series while adding enough information to enhance the previous films. Of the series, the main character here stands out as the best.

    May the devil vomit over stop-motion effects present in several of the worst sequels ever conceived. One extra star for being <u>laughably</u> bad and <u>unintentionally</u> hilarious. 31/100

    Some good performances by Moriarty, Karen Black and the creatures, which are shown all grown up. The plot thickens, what with the creatures now as parents. More bloody than the first two, this being the splatter era or horror movies. A dumb would be rape scene that is choppy and badly edited, some stop motion animation, and a deserted island local and Cuba are thrown in for good measure. Entertaining but not exactly film at its best.

    This one sets a different tone compared to the first two films in the series and doesn't take itself too seriously. It's got some nice gore and some bizarre humourous moments, and you also get a better look at the mutant misfits and even fully grown ones too. It is a pretty stupid film though and quite juvenille, so not a classic here, but it is fun.
