Species: The Beauty is the Beast
three million years, the human race has been at the top of the evolutionary
ladder. Nothing lasts forever. SETI has received a transmission containing
the genetic map to an alien species, including instructions on how to
combine it with human DNA. The product of this genetic manipulation is Sil;
a strikingly sensual woman (Natasha Henstridge) that can instantly transform
into a monstrous blood-drenching mating machine. Sil must be located and
destroyed before she can procreate. Thrilling
effects, and the bare debut of a sexy Henstridge make this sci-fi horror
hybrid a must see.
Giger designed the biomechanical appearance of Sil for Species. When MGM
decided to cut the spectacular "train birth" sequence in the
interest of budget-trimming, Giger personally financed this $100,000
showcase of his work.
