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

[It's] witty, aware of its own craziness, and disarmingly insightful about the psychology of its characters.

A good horror flick always does metaphoric battle with our interior demons, and Splice summons them in impressive numbers.
June 4, 2010
Daring, disturbing and deliciously twisted.

What makes Splice morally compelling isn't the bioethics quandaries it raises so much as the way it delves into parenthood.

Bottom line: Splice asks you to suspend your disbelief to the extreme, but if you can, it's a whole lot of fun.

Natali's Splice is an engaging, disquieting and most of all thought-provoking film that asks complex questions about the nature of parenthood, the ethics of medical science and what it is to be human.

Where the movie succeeds - and I think it does succeed, overwhelmingly - is in drawing you into an emotional relationship with its characters.

[Director Natali] treads the fine line of a film that is just believable enough to get the audience's attention, and sci-fi enough for us to think this could never happen. Or could it?

Despite the conventional plot it's always fun, even when the action gets increasingly absurd.

Though Splice has viscera a-plenty, the horror of it isn't in the gore. It's in the notion that sometimes children end up evil and it might be entirely our fault.

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.
February 15, 2013
Who would have thought talent of that calibre would combine to create such a catastrophic stinker.
October 1, 2012
Because of the writers' choice to stay so superficial, we get a sluggishly-paced, forgettable thriller.
April 4, 2011
It's the very special genetic engineering episode of Parenthood that was too hot for TV.
March 30, 2011
Splice ends up being disturbing, but not particularly affecting. The use of the human characters is too uneven to pull off the desired effect.
October 13, 2010
"Splice" is one of those movies that just makes you ache, because it almost achieves greatness.
October 11, 2010
Splice is a thinking person's horror film. Produced by Guillermo Del Toro, this is more for fans of the old Universal horror films than of the recent spate of gorefests.
October 5, 2010
The ne plus ultra of chicks-with-***** body horror, Splice makes the leap to Blu-ray with an aptly pristine image/sound presentation.
