B movie plot with a proper surprise conclusion

What did you like most about Xan?

This reads like a b movie version of Tilley's excellent and far more serious 'Fade Out' , alien invasion, will the plucky locals win out against the cold intelligence of the insectoid warrior - you think you know the answers but you'd be wron.
