Illumin80s Season 2.5 - Episode 6: Aliens vs. Predator
In space, no one can hear you scream - but EVERYONE can hear a badass hand slap! Could Predator have been a more perfect movie if they’d just hired a sniper played by Lance Henriksen? If one of the Aliens impregnated Burke, would it’s offspring inherit flop-sweat and an appreciation for the substantial dollar value of it’s nest? It’s the episode so long in the making we decided to make it a double, as we pit “Aliens” vs. “Predator” - and EVERYONE vs. “Alien vs. Predator!”
