A CIA-sponsored Special Forces team enters the Central American Jungle to engage guerillas, and of course the team is mildly surprised to find the guerillas already flayed and butchered. The single orchestrator of this charnel mayhem, an ominous sinuous presence initially sensed but unseen, has now set its sights on the commandos as well. The presence strikes invisibly. Retracing their steps, the commandos attempt to outpace their unknown attacker, even while the presence follows them relentlessly. Ultimately, Dutch, the leader of the outfit, finds himself at odds with the Predator, a hulking crab-mawed monstrosity with physical strength and durability equal to his superior technological gear and weaponry.
