Splice (2010)

Synopsis: Two rogue genetic scientists create a human/animal hybrid and try to hide it from the rest of the world. However, the creature has an accelerated growth, and quickly reveals that it's a lot more than they ever imagined.

What an absolutely creepy movie, but the disturbing factor actually turned out to be addictive. I wanted to see how far the movie was going to go, and it went pretty fucking far. Too far? No.

Thoughts if you've seen it.

    It's been on my to see list. The director was responsible for the Cube trilogy which made no sense and had a lot of fucked up moments... But I loved it for some reason. I also hear Splice is more akin to Frankenstein rather than a monster movie.

    That excites me.

    I would totally bone the monster from this movie.

    I remember hearing from people everywhere that this movie was "just like Species," then I actually saw it and realized that this movie is to Species as Back to the Future is to Terminator (I know I stole that comparison from somewhere, just don't know where).

    This movie was pretty decent, I thought. It was a little on the independent side (kinda artsy, only with a good budget). Like the Cube movies, it was a serious film with a little cheese.
    I didn't regret seeing the film, but I did regret paying the $10 to see it. If it weren't for Adrian Brodie being in it, this would probably have gone straight to DVD or, with a smaller budget, straight to SyFy.

    I'm certainly not knocking the film. I'm just saying it's not cinema's greatest masterpiece. Definitely check this one out on TV, DVD, or PC.
