A classic horror movie. It's kind of hard to critique a film from so many years ago to the standard we hold movies today, but overall, this movie was okay. I can see why it's a cult classic and why there's so many sequels. However, it wasn't personally my favorite. The acting was cheesy, there wasn't much interesting plot points, and parts of it are kind of boring. I'd recommend watching it because it's so iconic but it's not a must-see.
Mediocre at best. The characters were all two-dimensional tropes and the acting wasn't great, but the honestly actors were just doing the best with what they were given. There didn't seem to be any actual substance to the movie, just gore and half-assed jumpscares. The dialogue made me want to curl up and die. As for the actual plot itself, everything was very vague. The rules of the universe just didn't really make sense. Everything was pretty cringey and predictable.
As for the ending, it was even worse than the rest of the movie, which is saying something. It was abrupt and didn't fit the vibe of the rest of the movie.
Overall, wouldn't recommend, but it's not horrible if you're just looking to pass the time.
Horrible. Quite possibly the worst movie I've seen. It made me feel sick to my stomach to watch. Seriously, I wish I could erase it from my brain. Critics praise "Splice" for being 'out of the box' and 'daring' but really it's just a fucked up remix of the age-old Frankenstein's monster cliché, but wowzers! This time it includes incest, rape, and monster-fucking.
It's a half-ass attempt to "push the boundaries" where the result is just a pretentious, nauseating film that no one should ever watch. If you have any respect for yourself, pls don't watch this movie. Goddamn.
I didn't care for this movie. Parts of it were enjoyable, and I think that Radcliffe did a good job with what he was given. However, it tried to tackle too many serious topics at once and came off as insensitive and misogynistic. There were many, many sensitive scenes that could have been handled much better. It feels like the director and writers have had literally no experience with any of these hardships and didn't pause to think before spewing it into the world in the form of this movie.
The symbolism was also insanely heavy-handed. It left no room for the viewer to think about their own ideas, the movie just smacked them upside the head with it. There were many clichés that could have been written better.
Overall, I wouldn't watch again. I don't regret seeing it, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
