An alien comes to Earth to breed so that her kind can overtake the planet in this action-filled sci-fi film. She came in response to radio signals sent into space by scientists. The radio signals contained our DNA code and from this her race engineered her as a walking breeder in the shape of a beautiful blonde. The story opens as scientists working in a secret subterranean lab try to gas a little girl to death. The reason for their seeming cruelty soon becomes apparent when the girl destroys the chamber and escapes into the desert. Now they must quickly find her, lest the alien child succeed… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Takes a clever premise and turns it in to soft core porn with a clunky ending."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"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."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"Violent kill-fest of a sci-fi/horror movie. Sexy monster, though."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Worthless"
‑ John Esther, Pasadena Weekly
"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."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"As slyly smart as it is silly, and the flick delivers a clever idea that's wedged in between some rather slick action scenes."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
"Sexy and bold."
‑ Victoria Alexander, FilmsInReview.com
"A great monster chase movie, some cool gore, and Henstridge had a promising debut. Too bad it never went anywhere."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"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."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"...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!"
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Does this film know it's funny? Does it think it's scary? In truth, it's enough of both to enjoy."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"Quickly disintegrates into the series of plot holes."
‑ Dragan Antulov, rec.arts.movies.reviews
