A few years ago I got really sick. I decided to take the time and watch a bunch of movies on Tubi. The two I remember watching are Prophecy and Species. I remember my mom renting Species when I was a kid, it was one of those movies they wouldn't allow me to watch. Something about it always intrigued me but I just never got around to watching it.
Species is a great creature flick. I've already mentioned Lifeforce this Spooptober, but I think this would be a good movie to add as a double header. It's about a team of scientists who receive instructions from outer space about how splice alien DNA with human DNA. The scientists do this and eventually their experiment breaks free.
The alien lifeform is now intent on breeding to produce offspring to assist in human annihilation. That's right boys, titties are back on the menu!
I just want to say that I miss Michael Madsen. I know he's not dead but I never see him in anything anymore. If George Romero made his Resident Evil movie, I would have loved to see Madsen play Chris. That's beside the point.
I love the creature effects in this movie. I really like how the creature slowly kills off the team of people trying to capture her. The movie is just a lot of fun and critics at the time were just a bunch of weirdos that they didn't appreciate this.
