The Borrower is a 1991 American science fiction horror film directed by John McNaughton and starring Rae Dawn Chong, Tom Towles and Antonio Fargas. The story revolves around an alien serial killer, who is sent to Earth to live among humans as a form of penalty.
Tony Amendola has a small role as a doctor and Mädchen Amick briefly appears as a rock groupie. Pamela Norris cameos as a hooker. One of McNaughton's previous films (and one of the most well known and revered of his filmography), Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, is referenced in a poster that can be seen in one scene on the street and a commercial can be overheard warning about the disturbing nature of the film on a television during a scene in the hospital.
An alien serial killer is sent to Earth to live among humans, and his body is genetically transformed to look like a human. The transformation is incomplete and, after a while, the alien's body begins to revert to its original form. His head explodes, prompting him to "borrow" another from anyone who happens to be nearby. He gets it by squeezing the head off with a crab-like claw and skewering it onto his own neck.
Detectives Pierce (Chong) and Krieger (Gordon) try to figure out the killing spree, with only one clue, all of the victims heads have been removed. The team slowly comes to the conclusion that they are facing a rather unearthly killer.
The Borrower was shown at the 1991 Toronto International Film Festival as part of their Midnight Madness screenings.
