Species (1995) + The Faculty (1998)

A deep-dive into Species (1993) and The Faculty (1998). AKA, lady aliens from the nineties.

We're joined by writer Leila Latif to discuss two nineties takes on the female alien. First, we discuss Species (1995) and its insanely misused cast, mix of genres and non-consensual alien sex.

The second part of the episode (from 0:23:15) dives into The Faculty (1998), how this teen sci-fi has aged, the teenage dynamics, the very Josh Hartnett brand of 'hardboi' and why the alien may have had a point.
