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 ...

Everglades boredom.
17 January 2012 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

The plot of "Deadly Species" is fairly simple:an expedition to Everglades in search of a lost native tribe The Calusa turns out to be really a search for the mythical fountain of youth.The expedition consists of two university professors,a bunch of nubile students and a photographer as well as the backer who insists he goes along with his muscled security man.Soon some of them start to die killed by mysterious creatures hidden in the Everglades.Surprisingly dull and badly-acted monster movie which lacks gore and scares.The scenery is quite lush and atmospheric plus there are some shots of naked boobs.The climax is hysterical and pretty stupid.Don't waste your time with "Deadly Species".4 tribes out of 10.
