Alien vs. Ninja: The Coolest Concept Ever Conceived?

I wouldn’t put too much stock in that headline, as I tend to get a little excited whenever something like “Alien vs. Ninja” comes barreling down the cinematic highway. Still, the plot is definitely cause for elation — think McTiernan’s “Predator” meets Kitamura’s “Versus” — and the action seems to be suitably cheesy and appropriately bloody. And while you might immediately dismiss the picture as yet another entry in the “people fighting in the woods” genre, one must never forget that the film features ninjas stylishly fighting a homicidal alien hellbent on destroying anything that crosses its gore-encrusted path. Sold!

Check out the trailer below, which arrives courtesy of Twitch.



About Todd Rigney

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    I'd watch that! I'm sure it'll look pretty low budget in some spots, but the fighting seems decent and the idea is interesting enough. I'd love to see an anime version of this, with better creature design. The Ninja Armor is pretty cool, looks right out of “Ninja Gaiden.” If it's feudal Japan though it's just wrong. LoL.
