Trivia

Actress Jillian McWhirter, who plays Sherry, said in interview how the scene where she gets raped by giant alien monster was shot but then due to some problems it had to be re-shot two different times. This is why the scene is so short in the movie. Originally the scene was meant to be longer, the alien monster was gonna try and calm Sherry down by fondling her nude body with its tentacles while holding her (just like other aliens did in earlier scenes), and part where it rapes her was also gonna be longer and more graphic. Three still photos showing McWhirter filming the original version of the scene in different location than it happens in the movie and while covered with slime on top of giant alien monster puppet that was used in the scene did appear in Femme Fatales article about her.

Not from human seed.
26 March 2002 | by Michael O'KeefeSee all my reviews

A young doctor and his wife are suddenly expecting a child. Both are disturbed about a two hour memory lapse on the night of conception. Interesting twist on an hackneyed story. Very good F/X and interesting editing. Jillian McWhirter is outstanding in a cast that features Arnold Vosloo, Wilford Brimley and Brad Dourif. Brimley brings normalcy to the outlandish. Kudos to director Brian Yuzna.
