  • When an extraterrestrial alien resembling a normal female child escapes from her isolation chamber, government agent Xavier Fitch (Ben Kingsley) assembles a group of scientists, composed of anthroplogist Dr Stephen Arden (Alfred Molina), molecular biologist Dr Laura Baker (Marg Helgenberger), and empath Dan Smithson (Forest Whitaker), along with mercenary Preston Lennox (Michael Madsen), to hunt down and destroy the rapidly growing "Sil" (Natasha Henstridge) before she manages to breed. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • The screenplay was written by filmmaker Dennis Feldman, who also produced the movie. However, a novelization, also titled Species (1995), written by American author Yvonne Navarro, was released concurrently with the movie. The film was followed by three sequels: Species II (1998) (1998), Species III (2004) (2004), and Species: The Awakening (2007) (2007). Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Fitch, Dan, Press, and Laura follow Sil into the sewers. When Fitch is separated from the others, Sil kills him. Press goes deeper into the dewers in an attempt to flush her out. Dan continues to search and comes upon a small naked boy (Kurtis Burow) who has just eaten a rat. As Dan tries to coax the boy to come out, he opens his mouth and strikes at Dan with a long tongue. The boy then begins to morph into a replica of Sil, so Dan shoots him with a flame thrower, and the boy falls into a pool of oil. Suddenly Sil hops forward and pursues Dan while Laura, stuck between some rocks, screams for Press to help. Sil shoots tentacles out from her breasts in an attempt to kill Press, but he fires several bullets into her, knocking her into the oily mass of flames. Sil tries to pull Dan into the flames with her, but Press loads his gun and blows her head off. "She was half us, half something else," Laura comments. "I want to know what was the predatory half." Press simply replies, "The dead half." In the final scene, as Dan, Press, and Laura make their way out of the sewer, two rats meet each other. One opens his mouth and strikes the other one with his long tongue. Edit (Coming Soon)
