Now that you've seen it, what did you think? It didn't take too long for this sci-fi creature feature to head from the Sundance Film Festival to movie theaters nationwide, but Vincenzo Natali's Splice is now playing in theaters everywhere (see it!). This is one film I'm anxious to hear the feedback on! If you haven't seen the trailer, check it out, then read Brandon's review as well. So what did you think of this crazy horror flick? Did anyone walk out in your theater? Did you see any of the big twists coming? What did you think of the creature and the story? If you've seen it, leave a comment and let us know what you thought of Splice!
Spoilers ahead! To fuel the fire, I love Splice! I haven't had the chance to see it again since Sundance, but I can tell you it was one of my favorite films of that festival and one I will not soon be forgetting, especially because it's so wild. I absolutely love that Vincenzo Natali (of Cube!) takes us on a crazy journey and down different paths that I never thought I'd never go, but that's one reason I love this movie. Yes, it gets crazy at the end with all the steamy stuff involving Dren and Adrien Brody/Sarah Polley, but it's a beautifully crafted film, an original, unique, thought-provoking well-made monster movie, one of the best of the last few years.
What did you think of Vincenzo Natali's Splice? A fantastic monster movie or a stylistic mess?
