A genetically engineered creature proves problematic and is soon seeking a mate. The Frankenstein template is put to work again with Splice, a new SF/horror film coming out next week. The filmmakers acknowledge their source material, naming the scientist couple Colin and Elsa.
Splice is co-written and directed by Vincenzo Natali (Cube, 1997) and stars Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley. Delphine Chanéac plays Dren, the beautifully designed chimera. Guillermo Del Toro lends his name as executive producer.
