On July 11th, complete your SPECIES Blu-ray collection with Scream Factory's new Collector's Edition of the original classic!


SPECIES is one of the best genre films that the '90s had to offer! It has a cool story, an incredible cast, and some fantastic creature f/x! So it's no surprise that this one is a definite must-own in my book! I'm quite happy that this title found a home with Scream Factory, particularly because they have already released the three SPECIES sequels on Blu-ray!

Hmm.... does that mean a SPECIES boxed set is a possibility down the road?

Synopsis: When a beautiful human-alien hybrid named Sil (Natasha Henstridge) escapes from observation, scientist Xavier Fitch (Kingsley) dispatches a crew of experts to find her before she is able to fulfill her horrific purpose: to mate with unsuspecting men and produce offspring that could destroy mankind.

As Sil's deadly biological clock ticks rapidly, Fitch and his team are hurled into a desperate battle in which the fate of humanity itself hangs in the balance! SPECIES was directed by Roger Donaldson (THE BANK JOB, THE RECRUIT) and produced by Frank Mancuso, Jr. (STIGMATA, FRIDAY THE 13TH PART II), and stars Ben Kingsley (SHUTTER ISLAND), Michael Madsen (THE HATEFUL EIGHT), Alfred Molina (FEUD), Forest Whitaker (ARRIVAL), Marg Helgenberger (CSI) and introduced the world to Natasha Henstridge (THE WHOLE NINE YARDS).
