An unabashedly sleazy blend of science fiction, horror, and soft-core erotica, SPECIES answers the question: What if in BASIC INSTINCT, Sharon Stone was replaced by a xenomorph? Natasha Henstridge is hot and dangerous. Good creepy direction but the acting is very hokey.

An amazing cast considering that this is just a sub-par creature feature and an excuse to show Natasha Henstridge in the nip as often as possible. Mildly entertaining but incredibly flimsy stuff.

Species has a good premise, if only the other facets of the film were memorable.
