Kimera – 1997 – Japan

Three pod-like spaceships crash in an isolated forest in America. Scientists capture one of the three pod-people. She is Kimera—an androgynous, green-haired, hermaphroditic, nymphomaniac vampire. She can breed with creatures of any gender or species. An ancient alien legend claims that her children will destroy mankind. The other two pod-people are also freakish vampire mutants. One wants to destroy Kimera and save mankind. The other wants to save Kimera and destroy them. Caught in the conflict is a young Japanese man who falls in love with Kimera. The plot climaxes in a bloody showdown inside a church. There are tentacles, cocoons, and giant snakes all over the place, plus an alien gray.
