No one can escape from the aggressive predatory Xenomorphs. With this in mind, a crippled Predator spaceship crash-lands on the dense forest of Gunnison, Colorado, right after the Antarctic bloodshed in AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004). As a result, a vicious Predalien hybrid, along with myriads of Stage 1 Xenomorphs, or Face-huggers, scatter in all directions, infecting everyone unfortunate enough to cross their path. Once more, the Earth is a battlefield, as both extraterrestrial species fight for supremacy. Now, with the humans stuck in the middle of a brutal face-off, Sheriff Eddie Morales must protect the city with a handful of residents. However, motivation alone is not enough. Can a team of inexperienced defenders ensure the fate of humankind?


Call me crazy, call me stupid… but I love this movie… aliens ànd a predator ànd a hybrid between two species set loose on an unsuspected little town, killing off its inhabitants one by one… what’s not to like? And it’s done properly…

I know there’s been quite a lot of backlash and negative comment on this movie (about lighting in the film for instance, weak story…) but I don’t get it… it’s entertaining! And even though it’s not canon with any of the two franchises (as they make us believe), for me it will be forever… there are clear Xenomorphs and Predators so why wouldn’t it be?

Such a pity though that the actor playing Rick (Johnny Lewis) died a few years after this movie was made and so tragically… I wasn’t aware… real shame.

Well, we won’t get another AvP, that’s for sure… could have been a great franchise on its own though (this movie is still better than Alien 3 and The Predator 2018)
