Check These Out: Creepy, Awesome Photos from Splice
Director Vincenzo Natali might not be a familiar name to you yet, but just wait. The man behind the small, mind-bending films like Cube and Nothing is set to release his next, called Splice, for which none other than Guillermo del Toro is an executive producer. One look at these remarkable new photos courtesy of Bloody Disgusting and you'll see that Splice may be the next cult fave of the sci-fi genre. The film surrounds a creature named Dren, a "beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera" who is created by two rogue scientists through combining human and animal DNA. Check out these photos below!
You can find all of these photos, and a few more, in high resolution over on Bloody Disgusting, so make sure to click over there if you like what you see. Otherwise, maybe you should just stick with what's shown.
Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley play Clive and Elsa, respectively, the two responsible for bringing Dren to life. As you can see in the photos, we'll get to witness the creature transform from a rather deformed youth into something that is at once inviting and terrifying. As you can imagine, and as the photos indicate, Dren eventually embraces her/its deadlier instincts. The idea smacks of 1995's Species, but I'm definitely more interested Splice's imaginative creature works than anything else. The film is currently set for a limited release sometime around September and I can't wait! Look like something that interests you?

#5: Same here. While watching the Oscars I thought isn't Adrien Brody's 15 minutes up? Hopefully. And then I see this. Bad casting.

Damn! Tom beat me to the winged Bjork comment. This could be interesting, although I'll probably have forgotten about it come September.

Similar concepts have already been covered in some great japanese Anime shows. However a real time version might be preety awesome.
