As such, I thought I would reveal a significant influence on the film: Species (1995).
For those so inclined, it might be interesting to first watch Species and just see what you notice for yourself. Yeah, your radar will be up because references are expected, but it might be interesting to come up with your own ideas, perhaps ideas that I hadn't even considered or ones I omitted. Than watch my video and compare notes.
Btw, you might want to download a copy as soon as possible, just in case the copyright police rear their ugly heads. I'm sure it falls into the "fair use" bucket, but that doesn't seem to mean as much as it should to deep-pocketed corporations.
Anyway, From Film Syncs, with love,
