Great Job, Internet!: In honor of Species’ 20th anniversary, here are some other alien women killing people
Twenty years ago today saw the release of the absolutely hilarious film Species, a movie in which Natasha Henstridge plays an alien seductress who has sex with guys and then kills them. It birthed two sequels, both of which Henstridge signed on for, so she probably has some affection for her first starring role. Neither of them are terribly good—though Species 2 improves upon the original by casting Richard Belzer as President of the United States—but they did contribute essential works to the mighty canon of films in which alien women fuck and/or kill people. And so, as a birthday honorific for the so-bad-it’s-mostly-still-bad trilogy, we present to you this sampling of alien women, fucking and/or killing people, in the grand tradition of Species.
