Release Date: June 4th, 2010
A twisted science fiction story, but a tad too slow at parts with a finale that was...icky.
Director Vincenzo Natali most certainly knows how to make a tense, psychologically driven thriller. Splice is a crazy tale of science gone wrong, where two scientists (Brody and Polley) decide to play God by mixing the DNA of humans and several animals to create a creature that could modernize modern medicine. The movie most certainly builds the tension not only of the evolution of the creature known as "Dren" but also of the crumbling relationship between Clive and Elsa.
However, the one complaint I have against the movie is that the third act has a few moments that don't feel like authentic actions from the characters.
