Species is a 1995 science-fiction horror film. Xavier Fitch (Ben Kingsley) is part of an ambitious and driven team of researchers, hoping to make contact with extraterrestrial life. After a long and frustrating silence, Fitch and his fellow scientists think everything has changed when they finally make contact with a mysterious alien presence. In addition to a formula for the creation of fuel, the alien being also instructs the scientists to splice its own DNA with human DNA. The result of this experiment is a girl named Sil (Michelle Williams). Although she looks like any other young human girl, Sil is anything but ordinary. She grows at a rapid rate, quickly bypassing childhood and transforming into a gorgeous adult woman (Natasha Henstridge). In addition, Sil shows signs of violence and aggression that leads Dr. Fitch and his fellow scientists to regret their decision to follow the alien's plan. When Sil escapes, it becomes clear that she is out to reproduce and populate the earth with her kind. If the government cannot intervene, humanity may be in imminent danger.
