The Alien and Predator monsters from the two film franchises meet on Earth once more and duke it out over planetary domination. This time the victims are the residents of an unsuspecting Colorado town. With Steven Pasquale, Reiko Aylesworth, John Ortiz, Johnny Lewis, Ariel Gade and Kristen Hager. Directed by Colin Strause and Greg Strause. [1:26]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - We see a darkened medical room where there are dead, nude women lying on tables (breasts are visible and pubic regions in shadow, with no hair visible).
 A teenage girl removes her clothing down to her lace bra and boy-short panties (cleavage, her bare abdomen and part of her buttocks are visible), and she kisses a teenage boy (they are interrupted).
 A teenage girl wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage. A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage. A teenage boy I shown bare-chested while changing his shirt.
 A husband and wife kiss.
 A teenage girl leans over into a teenage boy's truck window and asks him to go swimming with her (they make a date for later that evening).

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - The "alien" is a large creature with a long head, long spiked tail and two jaws (one of which shoots out of its mouth to kill its victims); the "predator" is a creature with sharp claws, super strength and powerful weapons and there appears to be a third creature that is a blend of the two.
 An alien pushes its way out through the stomach of a man (we see blood spurt, the man screams and the alien screeches and we see the head and part of the body of the alien covered with blood); the man's young son watches, and an alien then pushes its way out of the boy's stomach in the same way.
 A pregnant woman covered with thick, sticky webbing moans as her abdomen moves and bursts open revealing several aliens inside (blood spurts and the woman screams).
 A man finds a man who was skinned and hanging from his feet (blood drips on the ground below and we see the bloody tissue).
 A man and a boy walk through thick woods and are unnerved when they hear unfamiliar noises, and the man shoots at an alien lunging at him, strikes it and acid spurts onto his arm burning it off at the elbow (he moans, we hear sizzling and we see the arm fall to the ground); an alien then attaches itself to his face and another one to the face of the boy (we hear squishing and see the man twitching).
 A dead boy is dragged by his feet (blood smears on the floor) and attacked by an alien -- it shoots its mouth into the boy's head several times and we see blood spurt and we hear crunching.
 A bladed weapon strikes a teenage girl and she is pinned to the wall behind her (blood drips from her mouth).
 An alien attacks a man, and its mouth strikes him in the face and appears to leave a hole where his nose was. An alien attacks a man, and we see him being torn apart (blood spurts and we hear tearing) and he screams briefly.
 An alien attacks a teenage boy, the alien is shot, it splits in half and sprays acid on the boy's face, which begins to sizzle and melts away (we see the skin melting and hear the boy screaming).
 An alien pierces a teenage boy through the back with its tail, and the spike pokes out through his shoulder (we see a bit of blood, but he survives).
 An alien crashes through a window and attacks a man, and the man struggles and screams as his young daughter watches. An alien attacks a woman by wrapping itself around her face and we see something moving down her throat.
 An alien attacks a man and we hear it tearing him apart (we hear squishing and we hear him yelling and moaning); a woman enters and sees the dead man (we do not) and she is attacked by an alien (we see the alien lunging at her pregnant abdomen, hear a crunch and we see her dead later with a bloody hole in her abdomen).
 Aliens attack several National Guardsmen, the men shoot at the aliens striking several, we hear screaming and it is implied that all of the men have been killed.
 A police officer runs after seeing something in the woods, he is chased and then stabbed through the stomach by a blade (we hear a crunch and a thud and see blood trickle from the man's mouth).
 An alien grabs a man by the head and then shoots its mouth out piercing his helmet and head (we see the dead man on the ground with a bloody hole in his head).
 Four teenage boys struggle to get out of a pool when they are chased by an alien, three get out and one is pulled back into the water and killed (we hear commotion and screaming); the rest are chased, another is grabbed and pulled by the leg (blood spurts on a window), and the rest get away.
 An alien attacks a man, the alien is shot, and acid pours from the wounds. Three men are attacked by aliens; the aliens attach themselves to the men's faces, a woman finds them, screams and is attacked by another alien (she screams and we hear crunching and gnashing. A man and a woman shoot several aliens, and one stands over the man and drools on him and the man shoots its head off.
 An alien stands over a man ready to attack, but a predator attacks the alien and kills it.
 An alien and a predator fight in hand-to-hand combat, with punches and by slamming each other to the ground: the predator rips the inside mouth of the alien off and then stabs it through the head (green goo pours and the alien squeals). A predator lassoes an alien and cuts it in half (green goo spurts all around).
 A predator fights with several aliens, shoots several, punches one while it's on the ground, and gives one a dose of a liquid that makes it dissolve. A predator fights with several aliens, shoots several (they splatter into gooey bits), stabs one and uses a laser on another and a couple run away. A predator kills an alien by spearing it through the back of the head.
 An alien throws a predator off a power plant framework, it lands on a beam and it is injured (green goo spurts). An alien kills a predator from behind (we do not see the strike but we hear a crunch and see green goo spurt).
 An alien bursts out of the chest of a motionless predator (liquid spurts and we hear a tear).
 A police officer walks into a dark passageway where he finds a homeless man and his dog, which is carrying a severed arm in its mouth (we see discolored skin on the fingers and a bit of blood at the elbow).
 A predator examines a dead alien by using a laser to cut away the skin; we see goo and hear tearing.
 A predator removes its mask and we see its face with many pointed teeth. We see many aliens in glass jars of liquid (the aliens twitch and stick themselves to the walls of the jar with suction cups).
 A man and a teenage boy climb into a sewer, rats skitter past them, and they see an alien in a drain and hear growling in the distance.
 We see thick, sticky webs covering human skeletons in a couple of scenes. We see the bloody remains of bodies in a morgue and blood drips on the floor from plastic tarps. We see a lot of blood smeared on gym lockers and what looks like fingernails (presumably from where someone was trying to hold on). A liquid is poured on two dead bodies and they disintegrate. A predator repairs a wound on its leg and it screams loudly.
 A bomb explodes and sends flames across the ground burning everything in its path. An explosive is set in a vessel that causes it to blow up. A large vessel falls from the sky and crashes to the ground in thick woods; a man and a boy find the wreckage.
 Three teenage boys tease another teenage boy, and then one punches him (we see the boy with a cut on his eyebrow) and throws his car keys into a sewer drain.
 A police officer with a gun walks through woods and investigates an abandoned car. Several people (civilians) arm themselves with guns.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
