While it appears to be a pretty straightforward story, the actual film gives you more in scares and chills - and more to think about - than you'd expect.

Who would have thought talent of that calibre would combine to create such a catastrophic stinker.

Because of the writers' choice to stay so superficial, we get a sluggishly-paced, forgettable thriller.

It's the very special genetic engineering episode of Parenthood that was too hot for TV.

Splice ends up being disturbing, but not particularly affecting. The use of the human characters is too uneven to pull off the desired effect.

"Splice" is one of those movies that just makes you ache, because it almost achieves greatness.

If you like to think while you ingest your horror, then this one's for you.

Cinema Autopsy

Splice is science-fiction/horror at its best, underpinning its daring moments of bodily horror and sexual anxieties with flawed characters to care about and moral issues to wrestle with.

MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Like the mutant progeny, Splice is an unsuccessful hybrid: half moral fable, half mad scientist makes monster flick.

Herald Sun (Australia)

By the second half of Splice, the film has devolved into a rather silly, yet distinctly unsettling blob of horror.

Trespass

Splice is most enjoyable when it embraces and revels in its science-experiment-gone-wrong cheeky horror persona.

The dire consequences of meddling with nature haven't been explored quite so well for quite some time as in Vincenzo Natali's Splice.

I love the character of Dren, which is nerd spelt backwards. I loved the relationship between her and her putative parents: Adrian Brody and Sarah Polley.

Margaret Pomeranz
At the Movies (Australia)

The Frankenstein story, a cautionary tale about ambition racing ahead of one's talents, has potential for great pathos and tragedy, Splice opts for far less than that and only partially succeeds.

FILMINK (Australia)

A compelling and intelligent horror film which twists genre conventions to deliver something excitingly new.

Sci-fi horror turns feral in this misguided story about genetic engineering that morphs into more of a monster freak show than a story with genuine thrills

Offers just enough moral and emotional ambiguity to make for an engaging if occasionally icky movie-going experience.

Natali [takes] his film down some dark and disturbing paths, and even if you're not overly keen about the destination, you have to commend him for daring to go there.

SFX Magazine

Spends three quarters of its running time desperately fighting against being the kind of film you expect it to be, before becoming exactly the kind of film you expect it to be...

It's a shame -- there's a lot of enjoyment to be extracted from Splice, but it remains a Frankenstein's monster of piecemeal storytelling.
