  • Scream Factory Releasing Species

    It hasn't been officially announced yet but "FX artist Steve Johnson let it slip in his Shock Waves interview that he's been contacted by Scream! to do bonus material for a release of the first SPECIES film. Right around 47:45."

    Species is a pretty decent schlock film. It's more interesting if you look at it as an inversion of Urotsukidoji where instead of a male demon/alien raping women to death it's an alien woman raping men to death.

      Well the cat (or alien, in this case) is out of the bag. Due to some recently unplanned leaks on various outlets we are moving up our reveal that we are planning a Collector's Edition of the 1995 original sci-fi hit SPECIES for sometime this Summer!

      No details to provide at the moment but we update you in the upcoming months.

          It's weird how the cover art for every subsequent release of Species shy's away from titties.

              I'm re-watching Species 2 and I have to say that it is a fun schlock film. Far schlockier than the first. Much more tits and gore and Skinemax aesthetics. Plus Michael Madsen clearly didn't give a fuck and turns in some grade A dialog.

                That was my first thought lol. I'll buy this. I am spending way too much money on double-dips these days.

                  Significantly upgraded transfers are sometimes worth a re-buy.

                      Never seen the sequels although I probably should. Recall enjoying the original.

                        If you liked the original, watching the sequels is the WORST idea you could get. They are on par with the awful direct-to-video sequels to Darkman and Sniper.

                          I actually like the DARKMAN sequels, particularly the third one.
                          Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

                            Then feel free to take your chances, but the Species sequels are REALLY bad. The FX budgets were way too low for the material, the acting is insanely bad, and the writing... oof.

                              Not really interested in the SPECIES movies. I just wanted to defend the DARKMAN sequels.
