User Score: 83/100


A group of scientists try to track down and trap a killer alien seductress before she successfully mates with a human.

This is one of those movies that are just weird. Species is like if I give you a gun, do you shoot it at someone, yourself, no one or do you just give it back to me? Scientists obtain the genetic code of an alien. They decide to blend it with human DNA. They also decide to make the half breed female because it will be easier to control and would not be able to spread its genetic material as quickly as if it were a male. Well anyway, she ends up escaping and a team is put together to track and retrieve her before she can reproduce. She begins her quest for a mate. What’s neat is that she is able to tell if the mate has any defects simply by looking at then naked. Species is a pretty good movie and the mate is one of the most unlikely.
