Storyline

Wilson Friels, a wealthy big-game hunter, funds an expedition deep in the Florida Everglades to search for a lost tribe of Native Americans, the Calusa. He hires Brinson Thomas, a local archaeologist professor, and his wife Marta Thomas to lead the trip. Together, along with their student assistants, Todd, Nichelle, Lori and Allison, they set out on what appears to be an innocent fact-finding exploration of the jungle. Soon, the team comes upon the deserted campsite of a previous expedition. Confusion turns to terror when they discover the remains of several members of the previous team, presumably torn apart by a wild animal. Alison finds a journal kept by the explorers revealing Wilson Friels as the one who funded their expedition. Friels comes clean and admits that he funded both expeditions. His intention was not to search for the Calusa, but to search for the Fountain of Youth found in their folklore, as well as the mythical lost species of beast that is the guardian of the ...

Good screen play well worth watching
16 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As an award winning writer I really enjoyed the movie and found it very entertaining. It had a good plot, was scary and although some viewers had a bad rating for it I consider them not educated enough to see this as a good screen play well worth watching. Some of the actors though needed more polishing up and the monsters could have looked a little more realistic, but movie making takes a lot of money and a high risk of loosing it, so with what budget they had I rate this movie excellent for entertainment. As a collector of classic movies & cult movies I am considering owning this one and viewing it over and over again. I have written over forty books and several plays with many awards to my name so I figure I am a good judge of what is a good screen play and Deadly Species in my opinion is a good screen play and one I would like to own.
