Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 07/07/1995
"...SPECIES is a kick to the finish....It ingeniously combines the schlocky fun of '50s sci-fi flicks with the shock tactics of ALIEN..."
Variety - 07/10/1995
"...Gripping....An effective thrill machine, delivering action and suspense that should engage all viewers..."
Los Angeles Times - 07/07/1995
"...Amusingly scary..."

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'

  • 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.
