Splice (2009)

Writer: Vincenzo Natali, Antoinette Terry Bryant, Doug Taylor
Director: Vincenzo Natali
Starring: Adrien Brody, Sarah Polley, Delphine Chaneac

two scientists researching the benefits of created proteins in a spliced creature go behind their corporate sponsors backs and add human bits of DNA to create a HUMAN SPLICE! what have they done!?

MOster's (Better) Synopsis (he left the house to run errands about 15 minutes in)
A husband and wife team of bioscientiests are the hottest pair of bioscientists on the planet, but their employers don't want them to screw around with human DNA.  Good thing they don't care, and in a single montage they manage to merge human DNA (from an "anonymous donor") into some chain of many other animals' DNA.  This happens in one marathon session, and the resulting fetus develops too quickly for them to terminate it.  Of course, it's a perfectly viable organism.


Everything that I thought would have happened happened, except that the new creature swaps gender halfway through so it gets to have semi-consensual sex with Adrian Brody before it rapes Sarah Polley.

The Woman
this reeked of "species". i know "species" is about alien nonsense and not human plant lizard rodent nonsense, but there were still lots of similarities. it was also pretty predictable. despite that, i was mildly entertained. rainy day naptime, on the couch vegging is the perfect venue for this.

  1. Even *I* didn't like this one so much, and I like most all goofy moster-alien movies.
