Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley are husband and wife genetic researchers who have cross bred a slew of animals creating a new species that they hope to farm proteins of medical use from. They want to push on and introduce human DNA into the mix, but the company that's funding their research says no. They do it anyway, and kind of accidentally create a creature that kind of becomes their daughter ... a daughter they have to hide in barn because she isn't exactly allowed to exist. Canadian director Vincenzo Natali is obviously influenced by Cronenberg here, and the parts of this film that really work feel his presence. Unfortunately, the movie ultimately only kind of works, totally running out of steam in the final act.

A particular case of family tragedy. A man and a woman create a special child by an genetic experiment. I liked to watch it. Rather low budget but well done, well played, sufficient special effects. Still looking forward to splice 2.

I thought this was very well-acted by the 3 leads, and a gripping sci-fi story.

Love horror genre from campy to slasher to torture porn and horror comedies; however this move was horrible and wasn't even good enough to be a sci fi thriller or horror. My horror movie buddy and the other cinema patrons loutloud said "what the f*** did we just pay to see?!???"

Monsters are better than humans. I agree!

Splice has an interesting idea but does not use it to its full potential and is rather light on the scares for a sci-fi horror film.

I so wanted to like this... interesting premise, like the actors... but.... I don't know. I think they tried too hard. Left m flat.

Unlike casual zombie horror's , Splice dances with the devil instead of destroying it. The plot focuses most dangerously on the benevolent creature, fails to create any type of character empathy for the sake of sting when things go wrong, and fails to reach out to the viewer for the purpose of fear interaction. Splice carriers a well amount of flare, but It's flat-lined feel will make it, oh so hard to finish.

Every possible lame ass cliche imaginable without any believable plot.

Interesting,and well acted movie,but ending kinda ruined it.

It has its moments but ultimately, 'Splice' doesn't take advantage of its premise nowhere near as much as it should and some of the slightly disturbing sexual scenes feel as though they have been thrown in to halt boredom. It is rather disappointing.

Good movie! A weird plot but I like how it developed.

This was a very good movie and "different" than others you might see. I liked it a lot.

This movie feels like a more emotional Species (Donaldson 1995). The first 30 minutes or so are interesting but, as the storyline unfolds, it becomes more and more ludicrous.

Weird. And not in a good way.

Interesting, creature was cute at first. Kinda disturbing when it banged the girl.

Rips open the tender subject of genetic modification, and takes the concept about 200 feet over the line. It's a very uncomfortable film to watch because it brings you face to face with very difficult questions.
