Splice (2010)

  Sarah Polley, Adrien Brody, Delphine Chaneac
Director: Vincenzo Natali
U.S. Opening Date: June 4th, 2010


Clive and Elsa are superstars of the genetic engineering world. They specialize in splicing together DNA from different animals to create fantastical new hybrids. The charismatic couple wants to use human DNA in a new hybrid - something that could yield astronomical medical benefits. The pharmaceutical company that funds their research, however, is more interested in exploiting their earlier triumphs for easier, short-term profit. Clive and Elsa secretly conduct their own experiment. The result is Dren: an amazing creature who exhibits an array of unexpected developments, both physical and intellectual. Dren exceeds their wildest dreams... and, ultimately, their most terrifying nightmare.


Director Vincenzo Natali promisingly kicked off his directing career in 1997 with the low-budget cult SF favorite Cube, but unfortunately things seemed to have gone nowhere fast since then. Some television work and Nothing (?) in 2003 and Cypher (?) the year before that.

Splice marks the director’s return to the sci-fi genre and features some great Indie actors (Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody), but exchange a few letters and instead of Splice you get Species . . .
