I've got a random memory of a science fiction film from either the late 80s or early 90s. It's a fairly sketch memory but a few key points stick out:

  1. Aliens (that look human) travel to earth to stop an human / alien hybrid child

  2. They get to earth by teleporting to a roof of a sky scraper (not much in the way of effects, just some smoke and lights!)

  3. Parts are more mystical than sci-fi it feels like

  4. The hybrid child has telekinetic powers

  5. The final battle takes place on the sky scraper and (this is the really clear part I remember) a metal bird statue that is being levitated has a large spike shoot out of it and the statue then is flown into the main bad guy impaling him.

I'm not sure if this was a movie or something made for TV but it look fairly cheap!

Was the child male or female, can you give a possible age range of the child? Was this live-action or animated? Was it meant to be a scary sci-fi movie? or perhaps a comical sci-fi movie? –  druciferre Jun 4 '13 at 23:21
Little similar to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonist_%28The_X-Files%29 –  Ankit Sharma Jun 5 '13 at 13:15
I believe it was a female child, around 5 to 8 years of age. It was live action and more of a thriller than anything scary. A little similar to the X-Files but it had worse effects (I've got the complete X-File collection so I know it's not that!) –  Rex Jun 5 '13 at 21:12
Is there any chance you might be talking about an episode of V (1984-1985)? –  druciferre Jun 6 '13 at 0:19

1 Answer 1

You might be talking about the TV series V.

I the original mini-series, a hybrid girl is born, who becomes known as the 'Star Child'. At the end of the second mini-series, 'V the final battle' it is revealed she has some kind of psychic power, which she uses to help prevent the destruction of Earth.

In the following V series, the visitors return and seem quite intent on capturing the Star Child.

Sorry it's not V, I'm well versed with both the 80s and recent version. –  Rex Jun 7 '13 at 19:03
@Rex Fair enough. It looks like you've updated the question since I answered it. Given the further details, I wouldn't have said V either. –  AntonChanning Jun 7 '13 at 19:30
