In SPLICE, superstar genetic engineers Clive (Brody) and Elsa (Polley) specialize in splicing together DNA from different animals to create incredible new hybrids. Now they want to use human DNA in a hybrid that could revolutionize science and medicine. But when the pharmaceutical company that funds their research forbids it, Clive and Elsa secretly conduct their own experiments. The result is Dren (model Delphine Chaneac), an amazing, strangely beautiful creature of uncommon intelligence and an array of unexpected physical developments. And though, at first, Dren exceeds their wildest dreams, she begins to grow and learn at an accelerated rate-and threatens to become their worst nightmare.
Kurt Halfyard of Twitch called SPLICE “A treat for fans of smart and interesting genre filmmaking,” while Devin Faraci of CHUD praised: “[SPLICE] is exceptionally rewarding with strangeness and cool creatures and a lingering aura of simple madness. SPLICE is exactly the kind of movie I keep waiting to see: strange, over the top, cool, thoughtful, monster-filled and just plain crazy.” And Cinematical’s Kevin Kelly raved: “Delphine Chanéac shines with an incredible performance as Dren. She’s so expressive and emotive with every cock of her head or movement of her eyes, and she completely sells you on the idea that this is a near-human creature who has been created in a lab.”
Canadian actor David Hewlett (PIN, SCANNERS II, STARGATE ATLANTIS, etc.) plays a corporate creep in SPLICE, which also sports astonishing FX by KNB and C.O.R.E. Digital. The film’s official website is here: http://splicethefilm.com/. SPLICE opens nationwide on June 4.
