This article contains information about Splice, the 2010 science fiction horror starring Sarah Polley, Adrian Brody and directed by Vincenczo Natali.
"Splice" is a 2009 science fiction horror film directed by Vincenzo Natali and starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley, who portray two young scientists and lovers who begin involving human DNA in their splicing of animal genes.
Superstar genetic engineers Clive Nicoli (Adrien Brody) and Elsa Kast (Sarah Polley) achieve fame by successfully splicing together the DNA of different animals, to create incredible new hybrid animals. 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 in the pursuit of even greater scientific discovery. They secretly blend human DNA with their creations, ignoring their society's ethical and legal boundaries.
The scientists name their creature Dren (nerd spelled backwards), and though at first Dren exceeds their wildest dreams, she begins to grow and learn at an accelerated rateóand threatens to become their worst nightmare. The two must come to terms with their decision as their creature quickly develops into a deadly, winged humanoid monster.
Splice was written by director Vincenzo Natali and screenwriters Doug Taylor and Antoinette Terry Bryant. The script was originally meant to follow up Natali's Cube (1997), but the budget and restricted technology hindered the project. In 2007, the project entered active development as a 75% Canadian and 25% French co-production, receiving a budget of $26 million. The director described the film: "Splice is very much about our genetic future and the way science is catching up with much of the fiction out there. This is a serious film and an emotional one. And there's sex... Very unconventional sex. The centerpiece of the movie is a creature which goes through a dramatic evolutionary process. The goal is to create something shocking but also very subtle and completely believable."
In October 2007, actors Brody and Polley were cast into the lead roles. Production began the following November in Toronto, Ontario. It was aided by Telefilm Canada's funding of US$2.5 million. Filming took place in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario and concluded in February 2008.
The creatures in the film were created by New York based artist Dan Ouellette of Neurotica Divine.
The film premiered on October 6, 2009 at Sitges Film Festival, where it won "Best Special Effects" and was in the running for "Best Film", and was part of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. After a bidding war with Apparition, The Weinstein Company, Newmarket Films, First Look Studios, and Samuel Goldwyn Films, Dark Castle Entertainment purchased the film in February 2010. The film received a wide release in the United States on June 4, 2010, with Warner Bros. as distributor. The trailer was attached to "The Losers".
The film opened on June 4, 2010 in wide release to a $7.4 million opening weekend in 2,450 theaters, averaging $3,014 per theater.
The film has received generally positive reviews from critics. Review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes reports that 72% of critics have given the film a positive review based on 111 reviews, with an average score of 6.6/10. The critical consensus is: It doesn't take its terrific premise quite as far as it should, but Splice is a smart, well-acted treat for horror fans. Review aggregate Metacritic awarded the film an average score of 65 out of 100 based on 34 reviews, indicating Generally Favorable Reviews.
The Film Stage gave the movie a 9 out of 10 saying that "This is more than a typical B-movie. Itís got two excellent strong performances, is beautifully shot and is lovably strange. Itíll most likely be divisive due to its tone and some of the more stranger aspects, but any surreal and crazy movie nerd will cherish the Splice experience. So far, itís one of the best films of the year."
The Flick Cast said "Splice is funny, frightening, and shocking all at once. Itís a disturbing commentary on where science is heading, and it is not easily shaken off once you leave the theatre."
On January 18, 2010, Natali talked with Bloody Disgusting about possible sequels to the film.
