Species (1995) In 1974, an organization known as the Search of ExtraTerrestrial Instituion (SETI) has possessed some kind of alien being, thus beginning some kind of top secret experiment to mix human and alien DNA. This is when the scientists created Sil, a female human-alien hybrid. However, approximately 20 years later, she has escaped. Sil is also determined to reproduce, but needs human male sperm to do so. Now, a team of scientists and federal agents must find Sil and stop her from mating with a human male and reproduce.

More Movie Taglines:
  • If you build it, they will come.
  • Men cannot resist her. Mankind may not survive her.
  • For three million years, the human race has been at the top of the evolutionary ladder. Nothing lasts forever

  • Be Intrigued. Be Seduced. Be Warned.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Xavier Fitch: We decided to make it female so it would be more docile and controllable. Preston Lennox: More docile and controllable, eh? You guys don't get out much.
  • Agent: Criminologist says there's no evidence of semen in the hot tub water. Preston Lennox: Well, maybe she took it with.
  • [while drinking Long Island Iced Tea] Dan Smithson, Empath: These are some good cups of tea, man.
  • Xavier Fitch: A train came through here about the time she escaped. Agent: Is she that fast? Xavier Fitch: She is *that* fast.
  • Dr. Laura Baker: I got his machine. Should I leave a message? Preston Lennox: Yeah. Tell him he's about to copulate with a creature from outer space. [Preston laughs and Laura smiles]
Movie Trivia:
  • During the production, MGM opted not to shoot the "nightmare train" sequence to keep costs down. H.R. Giger was not willing to accept that, however, so he spent $100,000 of his own money to finance the sequence.
  • An early draft of the script had the young Sil calmly killing a friendly cab driver. In an effort to keep the audiences sympathy for her character (and to make the murder of the porter more shocking) the scene was changed to Sil killing a tramp in self defense after he attempts to attack her.
  • For the scene in which Sil is 'born' from the cocoon, the train set was built upside down. Natasha Henstridge, totally naked and covered in KY Jelly lubricant, was pushed through the cocoon, and the shot was flipped upside down afterwards, to achieve the effect of her falling out.
  • Michael Madsen and Marg Helgenberger were allowed to improvise their sex scene.
  • Fitch's comment that they made Sil female to be more controllable belies his ignorance. In every predatory species known, the female is always more aggressive.
