There is only one named female character in the movie, and I don't believe her name is ever spoken.

Mercedes disagreed with the rating and said:
from the movie:
Dutch : [Takes out his knife] What's your name?
Anna : Anna.
Dutch : Anna, this thing is hunting us. *All* of us. You know that?

her name is spoken exactly twice, it's a 1/3 fail not 0/3 ;-)

I just realised, that my previous comment, that the name of the one woman in the movie is spoken, still does not make it pass the first test, as 1 is less than 2,
assuming the predator itself is not female (hard to say with reptiloids) , it's a 0/3

It fails the Bechdel test but passes for general feminism. The lone female character is strong and capable and never once used as a sex object or punching bag.
