Species (1995)

Science fiction

A half-human, half-alien mutant escapes from a government laboratory and attempts to prolong the life of her species by mating with a human. Pursued by scientists and police, she passes through a chrysalid stage and takes on the appearance of a beautiful young woman, but at any moment she can metamorphose from her eye-catching form into a repulsive, death-dealing monster.
