Allan Hunter
Daily Express

A B-movie science-fiction melodrama that really needed the genius of David Cronenberg to bring it to life.

While it doesn't hold back on delivering the odd moment of outlandish gore, it also turns out to be way funnier, freakier and more perverted than its Frankenstein-style story suggests.

One of the year's most unusual, imaginative and daring films.

Part horror, part drama and part comedy, this is a hybrid, but an enjoyable one.

Empire Magazine

It doesn't go the complete distance, but this is a wholly admirable, refreshingly grown-up science-fiction movie: a Frankenstein with a beating, gene-spliced heart and top-of-the-range performances.

This Cronenbergian exploration of the perils of inter-species gene-splicing wrestles with some topical and disturbing ideas, but never quite pins them down.

Birmingham Post

With above average creature effects and a succinct title which neatly bridges medicine and filmmaking techniques alike, teenagers looking for escapism should love it.

Fortunately, after all the howling and growling and carnage is done, Splice does remain a very human film.

News of the World

It's refreshing to see a genre movie that credits its audience with a bit of intelligence, and Splice has got a lot going on under the bonnet.

Alan Jones
Radio Times

As Natali's potent allegory about child-rearing turns deadly, absurdity is, thankfully, just about kept in check through committed performances and the director's deflating of the most risible moments with well-judged levity.

Natali's direction and vision is as nuanced as the story's tone, and while the plot beats are familiar to genre fans, Splice manages to evolve the genre to new heights.

Hugely entertaining, superbly written sci-fi thriller that manages to be simultaneously scary, moving and darkly funny, thanks to strong direction, great special effects and terrific performances from its three leads.

Anton Bitel
Film4

Natali expertly recombines the body horror of a creature feature with the perverse dysfunction of a family tragedy, engendering a freaky new genre hybrid whose monstrosity is (mostly) human.

The film feels like it's descended directly from the early biological horror of David Cronenberg -- and Natali's work doesn't suffer in the comparison

It's nice to see a genre film try to be smarter than it needs to be, but all we really get is a genre film that's duller than it should have been.

Electric Sheep

In spite of its few shortcomings, the film has much to commend it and its ideas are adeptly fleshed out by an excellent cast.

eye WEEKLY

As an intense and inventive monster movie that doubles as a Bu˝uelian black comedy about parenthood, Splice would be a rare beast even if it weren't arriving alongside far more conventional summer fare.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

While it's more than a tad derivative, it's a stylish, and well constructed flick, benefiting enormously from the lead performances from Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley.

Dark Horizons

Splice is aching to creep out the room with its symphony of goopy creatures and psychosexual situations, but the film is perhaps too timid and verbose to truly lunge forward and gleefully disturb.
