Scientists biologically combine the DNA of a human with that of a newly discovered alien life form and come up with a supermodel who looks like (makes sense to me!)  They have decided to make her a woman to make her more docile, but have no idea that she’s actually a monstrous killer who destroys every living thing in her path on the road to achieving successful mating with another of her kind. Naturally, there’s lots of pathetic excuses to get a painfully awkward Henstridge out of her clothing; even that is not a good enough reason to watch this boring horror film that really owes its devoted audience a hell of lot more to work with.
