“Splice” is the real thing -Review

By Scott Mendelson

hollywoodnews.com: In a sea of pretenders, Splice is the real thing.

It is a genuine thriller, rooted in a small cast of developed characters and thoroughly engaged in its moral quagmire. It is frighteningly plausible and deliciously humorous.

It is less concerned with scaring you out of your seat than in slowly creeping you out. It is a true original, a buttoned-down variation of the classic ‘science has gone too far’ story, but rooted in realism and sympathetic characters. It works because it takes the time to make us give a damn, and we give a damn because it works.
