Description:

Imagine a movie in which our governor visits an alien planet and hunts down a group of alien military types, one by one, in the wilderness, until only one is left. Arnold has heat vision, of course, but one alien figures this out and covers itself with sand to disguise its own heat signature, thereby becoming invisible to this human hunter. Let's call the film Bizarro Predator. I think this is what our protagonist would look like. Except spiders are poikilotherms and don't have heat and are probably invisible to heat-sensing interstellar predators. D'oh.
