This is a terrifying film.

It's good, it's just nothing really groundbreaking or special.

[Director] Wilkins understands that what we don't see is often more unsettling than what we do. But he also throws in plenty of well-earned gore, making this an ideal option if you're looking for a few new Halloween scares.

There have been worse horror flicks, but although this one offers a few scares, it doesn't have a lot of imagination.

A very efficient and effective (for its budget) zombie-infection-sci-fi-thriller

Splinter plays like a breath of fresh air. It's a fun, fast paced monster mash that's all but guaranteed to find an audience by word of mouth.

Everything you expect to happen, does - but it isn't satisfying.

deliver[s] plenty of bang from the filmmaker's limited bucks - but Splinter's greatest strengths, rare for the genre, are its solid characterisation, witty dialogue and charismatic performances.

Excelling in creative scaring skills, Splinter boasts thorny issues like psycho fungi who go mobile, nuclear hedgehogs, homicidal human porcupines, impromptu carnivorous rooftop dining on half a state trooper, and a dangerously defrosting savior on ice.

Fans hoping for a substantial work are left with no real statement or vision, while horror aficionados have already seen this film a dozen times before.

This slightly elevated generic effort is still essentially what they mean by disposable entertainment.
October 31, 2008
The movie's awash in blood, sure, but it has more brains on hand than just the ones dripping down the wall.
October 31, 2008
It's short, taut, nicely shot, well-acted, astutely directed, specific where it might have been generic, original enough to be engrossing and derivative enough to be amusing.
October 31, 2008
With Splinter, the director Toby Wilkins honors the conventions of the horror genre with skill and enough wit to keep the scares sharp.
