While being transported in a military ambulance and supposed dead, Eve delivers an offspring and is killed by a half-breed. The baby girl is abducted by Dr. Abbot, and a couple of days later she grows up, reaching adulthood and becoming a gorgeous young woman called Sara. Dr. Abbot expects to develop a perfect DNA using Sara's eggs and win the Nobel Prize, and invites the student Dean to be his assistant and share his research and future awards. But while Sara unsuccessfully chases a perfect mate for her to generate a perfect being, the flawed half-breeds led by Amelia try to reproduce with her to survive their species. Written by

Executive Producer Frank Mancuso Jr. wanted this sequel to be aimed more at young adults so the characters were written to be younger than what was originally planned. See more »
In every movie, the Species alien has been able to detect defective genes just by touching a potential mate, including Sara. But at the end of this movie, Sara walks away with a sterile mate when she was seeking a fertile one to continue her species, and they are holding hands. She should have immediately detected his sterility. See more »

Despite being mortally wounded, Evethe human/alien hybrid from Species IIgives birth to a daughter, Sara, who is abducted by Dr. Abbot (Robert Knepper), a scientist whose ultimate aim is to win the Nobel prize. The girl quickly reaches adulthood (the grown up Sara is played by blonde hottie Sunny Mabrey, who wastes no opportunity to show off her stunning bod) and soon she is seeking a mate.
Abbot, along with promising student Dean (Robin Dunne), conducts various experiments on the young woman, but with other 'half-breeds' seeking Sara out in order to have sex with her, things eventually go awry.
Although Species III has essentially the same ingredients as its predecessorsa nonsensical storyline, hot nekkid chicks, and lots of gorethis time around the result is less satisfying; this is because they forgot one important factor: to make the film fun! The latest instalment of the series takes itself far too seriously, and suffers badly as a result.
Natasha Henstridge makes a brief appearance at the beginning of this episode, but then its up to a cast of relative unknowns to make this poorly scripted and badly directed mess of a film work; and, guess what.... they fail. I don't blame them, however; with a plot as muddled and poorly conceived as this one, failure was inevitable. Even a cast of Oscar winners couldn't save this one from being a total stinker.
I mean, have you ever heard of a college that is able to fund the building of a revolutionary nuclear fission plant? Me neither, but that doesn't stop the writers of this cack from throwing this dubious element into the mix. And what are the chances of your average college student understanding the complexities of combining alien and human DNA? Pretty slim, I would've thought, but to the students at this college, such things are child's play.
As if to compensate for the film's rather far fetched and tedious storyline, director Brad Turner sees fit to pack in lots of explicit gore (which is always welcome) and another beauty with nice ta-tasa second foxy alien, played by brunette scorcher Amelia Cooke (who does the decent thing and gets her kit off within minutes).
But even with the blood, guts and bodacious babes, Species III is something of a damp squib.
