Storyline

Scientists at a secret underground complex have found a way to travel to another dimension. Three dimension-travelers are the first to go through the gate - but are soon attacked by something that interrupts the communication with the control room. This horrible something uses the gate to travel back to the underground complex. Most of the staff are evacuated, except four heavily-armed soldiers and Dr. Casserly and Dr. Summerfield who just can't stand each other... Written by Mattias Thuresson

As in the original, not all extra-terrestrials are friendly...
14 June 2002 | by (America) – See all my reviews

The description on the box plainly says "Part Alien, part Predator", so don't bother complaining that it's derivative. Three explorers are sent to a planet in another dimension, but after being attacked only the female returns, carrying an Alien. The facility seals itself to contain the bio-hazard after it bursts from her chest, and the remaining scientists try to make their way to the surface while being stalked. Jan Michael Vincent has been called in to help, as he has had previous experience with this creature. Special effects from this movie have been incorporated into at least one other movie. The unrelated sequel Xtro-3 deals with a creature that blends into it's surroundings like the one in Predator does.
