Directed by Peter Medak. At Bay Area theaters. It is, of course, a sequel, and the major returning visual effect is lithe Natasha Henstridge as a troubled knockout, er, alien being. Henstridge was named Sil when she arrived in the original. She demonstrated a twisted mating urge using gooey tentacles that made mincemeat of guys who couldn't resist her charms.
FILM REVIEW; Sex and the Single Hideous Monster
Species II () - IMDb
In the spring a monster's fancy lethally turns to thoughts of lust. This thought, reduced to a level contemptuous of taste and reasonable intelligence, underlies ''Species II. The film is a blood-drenched, head-blasting, leaden-footed, logic-bashing sequel to the science fiction and horror show about a botched Government experiment that combines human and alien DNA, looses a viscous villain and, of course, threatens the future of humankind. Now, as slime goes by, the story tells of oozing alien DNA that journeys to planet Earth in the body of the first American man on Mars.

The results live up to that cult rep, and then some.
