Splice, directed by Vincenzo Natali and written by Vincenzo Natali and Antoinette Terry Bryant, is yet another scifi movie that delves into the ages old cautionary tale of of what happens when humankind attempts to ‘play God’ through reckless scientific research. While the ghoulish means of using dead human body parts to create a life have been replaced by high tech labs and fancy DNA splicing techniques, the outcome remains the same in Splice as it did in Frankenstein whereas the creature ultimately turns on the creator. 

Despite having an updated take on this solid scifi theme and award winning actor Adrian Brody as the star, Splice  didn’t do very well at the box office. The filming budget for Splice, which was released into theaters on June 6, 2010, was roughly estimated at 26,000,000.  During its run month long run in the theaters in the USA, this scifi thriller only grossed an estimated $16,999,046 which made Splice a box office failure.

However this doesn’t mean that Splice isn’t an entertaining movie and with its release onto DVD, Blu_ray and Digital Down Load, it makes a great treat for Halloween movie watching fun.

MOVIE REVIEW: Splice: In the Beginning There Was Shelley… and Whale!

Splice onesheet

Splice is the latest there-are-things-Man-was-not-meant-to-know movie – a modern update on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, via James Whale’s original Frankenstein movie. Like that film, there will no doubt be a number of critics and members of the audience who view it as a revolting piece of trash. I expect that, like Whale’s Frankenstein, it will survive and be both respected and appreciated.

Co-writer/director Vincenzo Natali – he of the low-budget sci-fi masterpiece Cube – makes the Shelley/Whale connection clear from the start. His two scientists, Clive [Adrien Brody] and Elsa [Sarah Polley] are namesakes Colin Clive [the actor who played Victor Frankenstein in Whale’s Frankenstein], and Elsa Lanchester [who played the titular Bride of Frankenstein].
