All the elements that make the Species franchise a favorite with horror and science fiction fans – a sexy young woman with alien DNA, and the mass slaughter she leaves in her wake as she searches for a mate – are present in the series' fourth entry. Lovely Swedish actress Helena Mattsson is the girl with the genes from outer space this time – she's a college professor suffering from blackouts who discovers that the source of her illness is the result of her scientist uncle (Ben Cross, lending a serious note to the proceedings), who created her from a mix of human DNA and the same alien soup that gave life to Syl (Natasha Henstridge, who does not appear in this film) from the first Species. From there, the pair head to Mexico to stop the rapid decline of Miranda's health; the cure, however, unleashes her voracious extraterrestrial side, which stops at nothing to find a partner for procreation. Budgetary issues are the main downfall of The Awakening – the basic premise delivers what the Species series promises, but both script and special effects are undercooked to the point of confusion and/or laughter. However, viewers who expect nothing more than the B-movie thrills of Species 3 should be amused by this picture's low-watt sex and violence. - Paul Gaita
