Batman: Dead End is a fan film written and directed by Sandy Collora that premiered July 19, 2003 at the San Diego Comic-Con, and on the internet shortly thereafter. The film crosses over the Batman, Alien and Predator franchises. Film director and comic book writer Kevin Smith called it "possibly the truest, best Batman movie ever made", and comic book artist Alex Ross praised it as "Batman the way I've always wanted to see him". Collora has stated in interviews that the film was made as a demonstration reel to attract attention to his directing skills, and as such, succeeded in its goal. Fan Films Quarterly listed Batman: Dead End as one of the 10 most pivotal moments in fan film history.
Big Red, also known as the Samurai Predator, was a Yautja encountered by Batman in the fan-film Dead End and the Clan Leader of the Gotham City Hunting Party. However, Big Red only appeared in the end scene of the movie, accompanied by members of his hunting party, that probably stalked the Xenomorphs that had infested Gotham City. Big Red is distinguished by his unusual red armor which includes a red Bio-Mask with black ornaments and golden Wrist Blades.
