Films: Lifeform (1997)
Location: Haunted home/Desert
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: It's always about the cultural misunderstandings when it comes to trying and making contact with alien life. But there are those times where we aren't the scared ones. No. More times than often, it's them who have every right to fear us.
History: When the Viking space capsule returned to Earth from Mars, it brought back something else. An alien visitor of sorts. The being went on a brief fear-induced rampage before being killed by the people at the facility it was in. But while the others studied its dead body, another alien was going around being dangerous too...
Notable Kills: Impales a man with the butt of his own gun.
Final Fate: The alien manages to escape the facility...only to see a bomb come its way. All it can do is sadly accept its fate as its blown to kingdom come. However, there are reports of another alien having made it to Earth, and they aren't unfounded either...
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3-Let's get the bad stuff out of the way. Yes, these multi-armed, armored, centaur-like beings can kill you, and are altogether unsettlingly bizarre. But at the same time, they are not evil, and even appear to be oddly cute. Just look at the way one observes a person in front of it, or how another prods at a dead guy as if to say, "who are these people, and are they just as scared as I am?".
Trivia: -There was a much different ending in mind, but due to the filmmakers not paying the cast, they had to rely on a simpler one.
-This film was also known as "Invader", "Alien Attack", and, at least in Hungary, "Xtro 4".
