Splice

She's Not Human ... Not Entirely.


Splice
With genetic modification of foodstuffs and animals a current hot topic, Hollywood takes a look at a ''what if?... '' scenario... what if they mixed human DNA in with animal DNA? Our two heroes, a pair of top scientists, do exactly that. The resultant creature grows rapidly to adulthood, and they adopt her. However passions stir and it's only a matter of time before all three find themselves in very complicated and dangerous situations.

104 minutes.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconSplicing and slicing just becomes a slasher gore
10
Die Burger
François Bloemhof quote icon'n Goeie wetenskapfiksieriller
10
Box Office
Amy Nicholson quote iconDespite Brody and Polley's reasonable efforts, they can't compensate for a script that undermines its curiosity about humanity, responsibility and guilt with silly loose ends about Polley's troubled childhood and odd flourishes like making Brody's lab technician his clueless brother.
5
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconIt's well done, and intriguing.
15
eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconAs an intense and inventive monster movie that doubles as a Buñuelian black comedy about parenthood, Splice would be a rare beast even if it weren’t arriving alongside far more conventional summer fare.
15
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconBefore the film devolves into cliché, director and co-writer Vincenzo Natali creates a potent and provocative thriller about gender politics and human impulses that can't be reduced to a science.
15
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconIf anything, the film's own splicing together of various cinematic genre elements -- cautionary sci-fi, thriller, goofy monster movie, Frankenstein homage, etc. -- means it ends up like the creature within it -- a hybrid that's fascinating yet ultimately flawed.

Tomatometer quote iconIt doesn't take its terrific premise quite as far as it should, but Splice is a smart, well-acted treat for horror fans.
