Fine special effects, eclectic casting, and the freeze-frame-worthy, clothing-free debut of a blonde bombshell made this cheesy science fiction/horror hybrid a cut above its B-grade roots. At a top-secret Utah facility headed up by Dr. Xavier Fitch (Ben Kingsley), scientists have created "Sil" (Natasha Henstridge), a half-human, half-alien product of experiments with DNA codes obtained from beyond the stars.

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
‑ 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
