Rating: 3.5/5 -- It's a lot of fun. It's certainly well directed. We've seen it all before, but I enjoyed it. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Despite its silly excesses of misogyny -- watch out for female sexuality, it'll kill ya! -- this absurdly exploitative sci-fi movie is not unpleasant to watch. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Director Roger Donaldson and screenwriter Dennis Feldman show an unexpected flair for the exploitation form. Full Review

As a straight fright film, Species would be wildly laughable for all the wrong reasons. But for moviegoers able to shelve credibility and go with the gory flow, it is a nifty parody of 1950s science-fiction fare. Full Review

...Amusingly scary...

...SPECIES is a kick to the finish....It ingeniously combines the schlocky fun of '50s sci-fi flicks with the shock tactics of ALIEN...

It would be comforting to think that the genus Cinema Americana were guided by the principal of natural selection, but cloning and reversion seem, rather, to be the norm. Full Review

Product Description:

A genetically engineered, shape-shifting creature with extraterrestrial intelligence adopts the form of a beautiful woman to mate with humans and unleash a brood of offspring that will destroy mankind. A team of experts must band together to stop her--it--from accomplishing its diabolical mission. Special editions contain behind-the-scenes footage with creature creator H.R. Giger.

Plot Synopsis:

A team of scientists decide they must gas to death a young girl named Sil. Why' Because she is the result of an experiment in which human DNA was mixed with that of a (possibly nefarious) alien race. But Sil has plans of her own, so she breaks out of the gas chamber and escapes. This prompts Fitch, the head scientist, to gather a team to track the child down. Unfortunately, they may have trouble recognizing their prey, because Sil has turned herself into a lethal, sexy, adult woman... whose goal is to procreate as soon as possible. The fetching mutant embarks on a number of sexual encounters -- most of which have gruesome results for her partners.
Will Sil, who finally changes into a hideous, slimy monster, defeat our heroes... and breed a new generation of mutants'

Production Notes:

  • Released theatrically in the USA July 7, 1995.
  • Shot in Panavision.

    Color by DeLuxe.
  • Sound in DTS stereo.
  • Additional credits:
    Visual Effects: John Mann (designer); Ellen M. Somers (production supervisor); Jim Rygiel (co-supervisor); Dave Jones (model supervisor); Theo Waddell (editor).

  • H.R. Giger's designs for the creature were brought to life by four-time Academy Award-winning special effects designer Richard Edlund ("Star Wars" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark"). He used high-speed computer imagery to animate the action that could not be simulated by a stunt expert. This enabled the film to come up with a fluidity for the monster's maneuvers that helped create the illusion of movement.
  • Rated BBFC 18 by the British Board of Film Classification.
