A PhD in bio-genetics might help in deciphering the dialogue in this gory sci-fi sequel about "specism" — human bias against other life forms. As fans of the SPECIES series well know, when aliens start trying to spread their DNA around Earth, bad things happen to horn dogs in search of a casual hook up. Dr. Abbot (Robert Knepper) kidnaps Sara (Sunny Mabrey), the daughter of an alien/human hybrid named Eve (Natasha Henstridge), but he's not interested in Eve's son, Portus (Christopher R. Gillum), who scampers off like the wild child he is. Abbot doesn't care that the female aliens kill their partners during mating; he's just as interested in destructive organisms like smallpox as he is more benign forms of life. Sara proves immune to the diseases that destroyed her relatives and matures overnight into a third-generation sexpot who, unlike her indiscriminate mother, is only drawn to breed with other mutants. The university cuts off Abbot's research funds, but he continues working with the help of an innovative grad student, Dean (Robin Dunne), whose pathology skills come in handy after Sara's abandoned half-brother, Portus (Joel Stoffer), turns up in a sadly deteriorated state. Dean develops a crush on Sara but she's only interested in breeding and prowls the area until she finds a half-human lover; unfortunately, poor health has lowered his sperm count. Ever the mad scientist, Abbot proposes that Sara's disease-resistant eggs could cure the ailments of her relatives, but Sara's terminally ill mate steals the results of Dean and Abbot's research and kills Abbot in the process. Sara, now without a protector, is fair game for government agencies and other partial extra-terrestrials, including a half-breed named Amelia (Amelia Cooke), who uses a internet dating service to kidnap Dean's roommate, bio-chemist Hastings (J.P. Pitoc), for her own alien preservation campaign. In rescuing Hastings, Dean might be setting the stage for Sara's future progeny to eclipse humankind, and the future of the human race may just rest in Sara's hands. What is there to be said a sci-fi film whose primary interest is stripping its female star? This film's target audience appears to be college boys too libidinous to care whether or not they understand the techno-jabber.
