Endangered Species (also released as Earth Alien) is a 2002 sci-fi horror film directed by Kevin Tenney. It follows a cop, Mike Sully (Eric Roberts) trying to find out who is behind a series of killings at the local gyms, eventually realising that the killer is actually an indestructible alien, who has come to make clothes out of human beings. Along the way, he teams up with Warden (Arnold Vosloo), also an alien who has come to earth to protect humanity. the supporting cast includes John Rhys-Davies. It is notable for featuring an awful lot of nudity.


The film opens with another gym killing, yet another in a killing spree by an unknown person, who only attacks local spas and gyms. Among those investigating are Mike 'Sully' Sullivan (Roberts), Wyznowski (Rhys-Davies) and Yamata (James W. Quinn). at the crime scene, Sulley spots a mysterious man leaving, and does not believe him to be one of the police force. They find that there was one sole survivor, a young woman who hid in her locker, and is currently at the hospital, under heavy medication. While visiting her, Sulley recognizes the same man from early, who actually questioned the young woman, as she believed him to be a cop. Sulley and Wyznowski give chase, with Sulley eventually managing to take down the man with his own taser.

At the station, he still refuses to talk, but Sulley stills believes him to be the killer. Unable to hold him, another attack takes place against a strip club, leaving many dead. While the police give chase, Sulley sneaks into the man's apartment, discovering many alien gadgets. he finds many unseen corners when putting on a pair of glasses, but when he leaves, he ends up in the same car as the man, who is trying to take down the hunter. However, his truck is invisible, and Sulley and warden put on their glasses to spo him. Warden tries to take out his tyres, and they both end up crashing. Sulley shoots the hunter, but to no avail. Warden stops the hunter, but hesitates to kill him, allowing him to escape. Warden reveals he is the same species, and was unable to bring himself to kill him. However, an explosion severed the hunter's arm, which Sulley takes for analysis while warden flees the scene.

Sulley has also picked up some of the hunter's weapons, which he also turns over. while Yamata is analysing the arm, it attacks him, trying to choke him. The hunter then enters behind him, strangling him to death before re-attaching his arm. Meanwhile, Sulley and Wyznowski learn that the guns bullets are capable of chasing people down like a heat seeking missile. Wyznowski is cynical and fires the gun, killing himself. Meanwhile, the hunter goes on a killing spree in the police station, taking each of guns along the way. Warden appears and manages to save Sulley, while the hunter takes his bazooka and leaves.

That night, Sulley finds Warden near a warehouse, but Warden reveals he had a trap set, until Sulley came and ruined it. They argue about species, and Warden reveals that his kind killed the dinosaurs and made their skins into jackets, thus leaving their kind extinct. The hunter appears and attacks, causing the two to take shelter within the warehouse. Warden tries to stop the hunter again, like he did earlier, but the hunter shoots him. Sulley is then forced to play a deadly game of cat and mouse with the hunter, who captures him and prepares to kill him with a knife. Sulley, however, manages to trick him into stabbing a fuse box, electrocuting and killing him. Sulley rushes back to wardens side as he dies.

The film ends with Sulley buying a dog for his daughters and naming it Warden. as they go inside the house, Sulley's wife looks up at the night sky, leaving us to wonder what else might lie amongst the stars.
