Species Plot Synopsis:

In 1993, the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence Project receives a transmission detailing an alien DNA structure, along with instructions on how to splice it with human DNA. The result is Sil, a sensual but deadly creature who can change from a beautiful woman to an armour-plated killing machine in the blink of an eye. Government agent Xavier Fitch assembles a team of scientists and mercenaries to locate and destroy Sil before she manages to find a mate and breed.

Species (1995) Review

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.
