    The heroine, from Antae(?), and her nemesis, a grotesque alien, fight each other in a sequence which is full of suspense, and which provides the climax of the movie.

    Re: a suspenseful fight sequence between....

    In film (I suppose in literature, but I associate it with film) a sequence is series of actions. You can have a car chase sequence or a fight sequence, for example. In the latter, there is a fight.

    In this fight, it was between the two characters as described above. Watching them fight was supsenseful (made them feel anxious, for lack of a better synonum) for the audience.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
