#1. The alien (Dren) - bad effects; especially when she grows wings. It looks fake like they were Halloween costume wings.
#2. The plot line was pretty bad, pretty predictable
#3. Its NOT a horror film. It honestly isn't that scary. I admit I was shocked at some points but never scared.
#4. Most scenes were irrelevant.
The movie was just not good. Its one of those movies your glad you saw for the main point of seeing it. You would never rent it or buy it. You would come across it one day and watch it just because there's nothing on TV.
The Producer/Director(s) jammed irrelevant scenes, humor in weird places, sexual scenes throughout only to keep your attention, and information that never gets answered like Elsa's (Sarah Polley) relationship with her mother.
Or the fact that Clive's (Adrien Brody) brother vanishes.
It almost seems as if they ran out of time at the end.
Slam everything together in a box, wrap it up and tie a bow on the top and you have a gift called Splice.
Looks nice on the outside but beware of the contents inside.
- the storyline was predictable and didn't make sense. A lot of the scenes didn't seem to relate to one another.
- having Dren (the alien) turn into a male. Suck Clive (Adrien Brody) into the water only to let him go and live only to kill him 5 minutes later? Why not just kill him the first time?
- Dren (the alien) turns into a male and impregnates her own mother- Elsa ( Sarah Polley)- wtf?
- Or how Dren and her father (Clive) have sex?
The show is just one big WHAT THE F***.
Weirdest show. I'd recommend watching it for the main reason of seeing how f***ed up it is.
But if your looking for a good quality movie- skip it.

Splice is an engrossing science fiction movie that is made by the director of Cube(1997). There are two reasons why Splice failed to interest the audience, the first is that it was poorly marketed as a horror film, which it is not as it's pure sci-fi and the second reason is that the audience are too dumb for changes in story and characters. Splice is the alien of 21st century and it's a psychological horror and investigation into the human condition as well. None of it's characters are stereotypes and the are no black and white characters, there's just greys. Sometimes the human characters are more horrifying than the hybrid organism. This is clearly the director's best work yet. The film is well acted, moreover, it's narrative is quite fresh and it's almost unpredictable. The practical effects also deserve praise.
