It is no masterpiece, but after some of the schlock seen this year, it is nice to see a science-fiction horror film that delivers.

An enjoyable creature feature where the creature just happens to mask itself as a beautiful, often-naked blonde. Nothing more than a big-budget exploitation flick, but it has some good shock moments.
| Original Score: 7/10

As slyly smart as it is silly, and the flick delivers a clever idea that's wedged in between some rather slick action scenes.

Does this film know it's funny? Does it think it's scary? In truth, it's enough of both to enjoy.

A great monster chase movie, some cool gore, and Henstridge had a promising debut. Too bad it never went anywhere.

Ingeniously combines the schlocky fun of '50s sci-fi flicks with the shock tactics of Alien and the cautionary allure of Looking for Mr. Goodbar.

Takes a clever premise and turns it in to soft core porn with a clunky ending.

Director Roger Donaldson's cartoonlike, computer-generated shots of the alien in battle are the ultimate cop-out in a film more deserving of the title Feces.

...she's a beautiful, horny, outer-space babe who just wants to copulate, and when she doesn't get her way, boy, does she get angry!

Violent kill-fest of a sci-fi/horror movie. Sexy monster, though.
