Scream Factory has released details for their definitive Blu-ray edition of the 1995 sci-fi horror film Species, which will include a 4k restoration of the film! The 2-disc collector’s edition will be coming to Blu-ray on July 11th, although, as with every Scream Factory release, those who pre-order it through their website will get the film two weeks early, so get your copy today!
Directed by Roger Donaldson, Species starred, Natasha Henstridge, Ben Kingsley, Michael Madsen, Alfred Molina, Forest Whitaker, and Marg Helgenberger. The creature designs were done by H.R. Giger.
When a beautiful human-alien hybrid (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 her 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!
