Ida Marie Bakkerud,
Technology brings us closer. Or perhaps it brings strangers, a little too close. But how much can you really trust someone? With a new ride share service, you never know who you'll be getting in a car with. Or if you'll ever get out.

Dr. Hollander, a scientist, takes his niece Miranda to Mexico in an attempt to reverse the effects of the alien DNA he used to create her. However the treatment goes horribly wrong, and it sets Miranda on a killing spree as she sets out to find a mate. Written by
The producers wanted to go back to H.R. Giger's designs of the alien creature due to popularity with fans and the absence of this decision in Species III (2004). The original look is apparent but with different color variations and new spikes on the aliens' wrists of the nemesis. It is also a first in the series that a half human-half alien character does not change fully into the alien creature but has prosthetic eyebrows, veins and contacts for a long period of time in more than one scene.

When Miranda is 'born' the second time and she gets up after rolling on the floor you can clearly see she is wearing skin-colored underwear to cover herself below the waist. See more »
Miranda (Helena Mattsson) is an university professor. She lives with her only family, uncle Tom Hollander (Ben Cross). Miranda is found unconscious and naked in the park. She is taken to the hospital where she transforms into an alien hybrid and kills several people. Tom arrives to find Miranda unconscious and goes on the run with her. He reveals the truth of her origins. They travel to Mexico in search of his former research partner Forbes McGuire (Dominic Keating) who helped create Miranda from combining human and alien DNA.
This is the fourth movie of the franchise and a TV B-movie at heart. The horror and thriller aspect is only a shadow of the original. Mattsson is statuesque with sufficient acting skills. Ben Cross can't do much with this material. There seems to be alien DNA everywhere which devalues Miranda's singular potential for danger. There are long stretches where the film flatlines. This is not that good even considering its limited aspirations.
