Trivia

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.

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.
