    Their was nothing on television this morning, so I watched 'Cocoon the Return' on HBO, and as I was watching it something occured to me and it made sense, the aliens in the two 'Cocoon' films are called 'Anterians', and I remembered that the alien bad guy in 'The Hidden' mentioned that Kyle McClaughlin's cop charactor was also called 'Anterian', and the life force that McClaughlin puts into Jack's mouth at the end of the film looks an aweful lot like the glow that the aliens gave off in the 'Cocoon' films.
    Does anyone know, or heard anything about this being done on purpose, the alien in 'The Hidden' being of the same species and from the same planet as the aliens in the 'Cocoon' films?
    Perhaps Jack Shoulder is a big fan of 'Cocoon' and did it as an homage to it ya think.
