A scene which was changed due to budgetary reasons had Sara scratch a campus student's cheek with her alien finger, which looked like a spike. Instead, this was changed to Sara throwing the man over her into a hedge in the final film. See more »
Even though Sara had never been outside you can make out her tan lines. See more »
Come on, she can't be that hot and be a bio-chemist at the same time.
Who cares what she is.

It took six years to producers to release the second sequel to the Species series. Wasn't that enough time to produce a better work? But then again, what would we expect from a B-grade movie with a (very) low budget?
Maybe we could expect a better story, with not so many holes in the script. Or a better acting and more believable characters. Or, at least, a bit more of thrill and suspense. None of that, unfortunately.
For we boys, however, 'Species III' is a feast for the eyes. The two alien girls, Sunny Mabrey and Amelia Cooke (now they come in pairs, and a brunette is added!) are gorgeous and sexy, and we get a glimpse of beautiful Natasha Henstridge at the beginning. The nudity is OK, and I think this kind of movie is expected to show a bit of skin. But we don't go see a movie only for the nudity. Do we?
I just saw 'Species 1' again, on TV. By the time I saw it first time, I didn't like it so much. But in comparison with this sequel, it's a way better movie. We know the series will continue. I just hope in the next episode(s) the level gets a little higher. Even for a B-grade movie with a (very) low budget.
