Trivia

Actress Jillian McWhirter, who plays Sherry, said in interview how the scene where she gets raped by giant alien monster was shot but then due to some problems it had to be re-shot two different times. This is why the scene is so short in the movie. Originally the scene was meant to be longer, the alien monster was gonna try and calm Sherry down by fondling her nude body with its tentacles while holding her (just like other aliens did in earlier scenes), and part where it rapes her was also gonna be longer and more graphic. Three still photos showing McWhirter filming the original version of the scene in different location than it happens in the movie and while covered with slime on top of giant alien monster puppet that was used in the scene did appear in Femme Fatales article about her.

Better than your average B movie
10 June 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What do you get if you cross Rosemary's Baby with The X Files? 1998's Progeny, or something like it anyway. Surprisingly thoughtful, restrained and adept for a B movie, it's got a tightly wound little story about a human woman (Jillian McWhirter) who is impregnated by extraterrestrials that are tinkering around with our biology for who knows why. Her husband (Arnold 'Imhotep' Vosloo) is at a loss and doesn't know where to turn as her condition gets progressively more… icky. Help comes in the form of two kindly doctors (Lindsay Crouse and Wilford 'Diabeetus' Brimley) and a UFO-ologist played by an unusually laid back Brad Dourif, but will their collective effort be enough to save her life, remove whatever being is in her womb and escape the attention of the aliens for good? Browsing the shelves this looks like a full on schlock-fest based on the cast and general vibe, but it's something a bit more tasteful that takes itself just seriously enough to separate it from the mass of junk in this arena. Don't get me wrong, there's some slick scares and a few gooey wtf moments, but they're used with a modicum of discretion and as such feel earned, always taking a backseat to the actors who give the human drama weight. Great little forgotten sci-if/horror.
