Vincenzo Natali’s first big “Hello” to the mainstream, his sci-fi horror flick “Splice” opens later this week on Friday. Here are five clips from the movie to get you started. For those wondering if the film is worth your money, check out our review of the film here.
Superstar genetic engineers Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah 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, 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.
Starring Adrien Brody, Sarah Polley, Delphine Chanéac, David Hewlett, Abigail Chu, Stephanie Baird, Amanda Brugel, Brandon McGibbon, and directed by Vincenzo Natali.
