Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (also known as AVP:R) is a 2007 American science-fiction horror film directed by the Brothers Strause (Colin and Greg), written by Shane Salerno, and starring Steven Pasquale, Reiko Aylesworth, and John Ortiz. It is the second installment of the Alien vs. Predator film franchise, continuing the crossover of the Alien and Predator franchises. Following the events of Alien vs. Predator, a Predator spaceship is leaving Earth carrying dead Aliens, living facehuggers, and the body of the Predator that defeated the Alien queen. A chestburster erupts from the dead Predator; it is a new creature that is a hybrid of both species characteristics. It quickly matures into an adult and begins killing Predators throughout the ship. A Predator's weapons fire punctures the hull and the ship crashes in the forest outside of Gunnison, Colorado. With the Predators dead, the hybrid and several facehuggers escape, implanting embryos into a nearby father (Kurt Max Runte) and son (Liam James) and several homeless people living in the sewers. A distress signal from the wrecked ship reaches the Predator home world and a lone Predator (Ian Whyte) responds, traveling to Earth to track the facehuggers.
