This could easily be written off as a space vampire type cliché. But it works hard to invoke the B-Movie, True Crime or even Pulp Fiction genres. The narration is so matter-of-fact it really grounds this alien killer story. And despite being called “the Evil One” it is just a sentient being (whose race has been hunted to extinction) pursuing its desire to survive.
