Audience Reviews for Endangered Species


This early film by cult director Alan Rudolph contains all the suspicion, paranoia, and black helicopter stuff we know and love about conspiracy thrillers. I dug that synthesizer music on the sound track too.


A very interesting film, JoBeth Williams and the late Robert Urich star in this 1982 classic about a series of cattle killings. A great suspence-thriller film.
