Best Alien/Aliens/Predator Knock-Offs

by muybueno16 | created - 14 Sep 2018 | updated - 1 month ago | Public

Some are inspired while others are rather cheap drive-in classic throwbacks and others are simply so bad they’re good.

Jurassic Park knock-offs are also included here since those films were also Alien/Aliens inspired to begin with.
