Sexy SPECIES sequels coming to Blu-ray.
While 1995’s ALIEN clone (complete with an H.R. Giger-designed creature) SPECIES did a brisk box-office and is well-regarded by many, for this writer’s pocket change, the SPECIES sequels are superior; weirder, wetter and – especially in the case of the second Peter Medak directed film -more sexually explicit.
Are they good movies? I don’t know. I don’t care! I love them!
So it’s nice to hear that the lovely lads and ladies and Scream Factory are unleashing Blu-ray edition of SPECIES II and a double feature presentation of SPECIES III & SPECIES: THE AWAKENING. All three of these grotty, sex and slime shockers are set to arrive on March 8, 2016.
From the press release:
Based on the characters created by Dennis Feldman (Species) and directed by Peter Medak (Rome Is Bleeding), Species II, the sequel to the 1995 science fiction thriller stars Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs), Natasha Henstridge (She Spies), Marg Helgenberger (Under the Dome), Mykelti Williamson (Justified), George Dzundza (Greys Anatomy), James Cromwell (American Horror Story) and Justin Lazard (Universal Soldier: The Return). A film by Brad Turner (TVs 24), SPECIES III features a strong cast of Robin Dunne (Sanctuary), Robert Knepper (Heroes), Amelia Cooke (Alien Agent), J.P. Pitoc (Thank You, Good Night), Michael Warren (Hill Street Blues), Christopher Neame (Dynasty) with special appearance by Natasha Henstridge and introducing Sunny Mabrey (Snakes on a Plane). SPECIES THE AWAKENING is directed by Nick Lyon (Bullet) and stars Ben Cross (Banshee), Helena Mattsson (American Horror Story), Dominic Keating (Star Trek: Enterprise) and Marlene Favela (For Your Love).
