Product Description

Product Description

Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) are superstars of the genetic engineering world. They specialize in splicing together DNA from different animals to create fantastical new hybrids. The charismatic couple wants to use human DNA in a new hybrid—something that could yield astronomical medical benefits. The pharmaceutical company that funds their research, however, is more interested in exploiting their earlier triumphs for easier, short-term profit. Clive and Elsa secretly conduct their own experiment. The result is Dren: an amazing creature who exhibits an array of unexpected developments, both physical and intellectual. Dren exceeds their wildest dreams…and, ultimately, their most terrifying nightmare.


Clive (Adrien Brody, Le pianiste – King Kong) et Elsa (Sarah Polley, L’Aube des morts – La Vie secrète des mots) sont jeunes, brillants et ambitieux. Les nouvelles espèces animales qu’ils ont créées leur ont donné la réputation de superstars rebelles du monde scientifique. En secret ils introduisent un gène humain dans leur expérimentation. Le résultat est quelque chose sans commune mesure avec l’addition des divers éléments : une femme, mélange humain et animal qui peut représenter une nouvelle étape dans l’échelle de l’évolution. Clive et Elsa pensent qu’ils ont peut-être généré l’être parfait jusqu’à ce que celui-ci se métamorphose finalement en un monstre qui risque de les détruire et le reste de l’humanité avec eux.

In the grand movie tradition of doomed scientists, Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) won't let the official quashing of their Frankensteinian experiment stand in the way of working on the scheme anyway. Sure, the ethics of swizzling together human genes with various lab potions is queasy, and the initial result of their rogue project is disconcertingly pitched somewhere between a human baby and a monster thing with a stinger in its tail. And yes, the beastie is growing fast. Like, really, really fast. But this is science, right? Surely the breakthrough in human evolution that would come with this experiment justifies a little corner cutting? Splice is going to answer these questions in a reliably familiar way, and in its early going it finds some fun in working hip variations on the mad-scientist genre--plus, in Brody and Polley, the film already distinguishes itself by reaching up to the top shelf for actors. It would be nice to report that director Vincenzo Natali (whose Cube was a very fun Twilight Zone-flavored teaser) is able to stitch these elements into something that keeps its momentum going; alas, despite the arrival of Delphine Chaneac as the mature (and unsettlingly sexy) mutant creature, the movie begins stepping into the sillier possibilities of its scenario. Splice would like to mess you around with some aggressively transgressive material toward the end, but this just leads us away from the most fruitful moral questions surrounding the creation of the semi-human being in the first place. That's where the horror lies. --Robert Horton

Mary Shelley of Frankenstein fame would have been pleased with this movie. I became uncomfortable watching the growth of the laboratory experiment. That's a good thing. I was into it. I thought the premise was a touch different than all the monster movies of the past. That's a good thing as well. Well written, good acting and you never knew what the next special skill would be that would be coming from the experiment.

Format: DVD
Splice(released June/10)stars Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody and was a Canadian/French co-production,filmed in and around Toronto.This Sci-Fi thriller is not quite as thrilling as I thought it would be.I don't know if its the length,the been there-done that moments in the plot,the lack of chemistry between the two stars or something else but it certainly lacks a serious punch.
The plot involves the two stars as geneticists working for a pharmaceutical company in R&D.The two create two live "lumps" and name them Fred and Ginger.However they want to push the envelope even farther,so Sarah injects some of her own DNA into a genetic soup and voila,Dren is born.At first it's a kind of cute though uncoordinated cat-like creature on long spindly legs but it soon is growing at an exponential rate.In order to keep their secret a secret,they take Dren to Sarah's parents abandoned farm where they keep her under wraps as she matures.With her physical growth comes mental growth and she continues to amaze and astonish Adrien and Sarah constantly.By accident they discover she is a water breather and after a fit of temper Dren takes to the roof and sprouts wings!
As time wears on Dren is developing feelings for Adrien who ends up sleeping with her.Sarah finds them together and storms out.At a conference of big wigs and backers,their company puts on a display of Fred and Ginger.When they put them together they inexplicably end up killing each other in a blood bath that spills into the audience.It turns out one of them transformed from a female into a male.The company is ruined unless the two can come up with a special cloning sequence they have been working on but so far to no avail.Sarah returns with a piece of Dren and successfully creates the sequence.

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Sept. 22 2015
Format: DVD
Not as sexy as "Species". In fact I really didn't find the hairless human hybrid, even when naked, sexy at all. A couple splices genes and creates a new species of globs they call Fred and Ginger. The globs are created to produce proteins etc. to enhance animal livestock. The inventive couple discovers they could splice human DNA and create a new species in order to cure human genetic diseases. The corporation forbids them from such an experiment so they go underground to do it. The woman, Elsa (Sarah Polly, slightly mentally unstable) uses her own DNA to create a creature which in the interest of time develops very rapidly. The infant looks like something out of Lynch's "Eraserhead". Eventually they have to move the human hybrid to a farm where it is cared for by Elsa and her boyfriend Clive (Adrian Brody).

The movie is intellectually interesting, but at the same time has poor characters. I thought I was going to adore this movie from reading the box, but alas, I did not as the stupidity of the characters got in the way.

The F-bomb is dropped a few times. Human hybrid nudity and sex including one rape.

Worth a view, if you keep your expectations low.

Format: Blu-ray
Everybody already knows the formula. Everybody already knows it's going to happen. Pretty good idea of who the good guys and bad guys are. Yet some of us watch this to see if there's going to be anything different. Others watch this because it is the same and they can never get enough.

A couple of renegade geneticists (Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley) crossed the line and splice with human DNA (Delphine Chaneac.) They pretend they don't know what they're doing. Just a little harmless investigation beyond what is allowed. What can be the harm in that? You and I know that how long does it take them to know?

It doesn't take exceptional CGI to make this movie. The scenes were all shot in Canada, so there may be an interest in this movie by Canadians. The pacing is quite good; the spooky parts go fast and the anticipation parts drag out.

Only subassembly race I can't tell you about any other versions. I did not see any extras but what do you need in making this movie. I would just chalk this up as a chiller, thriller, and filler.

I really enjoyed this movie. A lot of reviewers compared it to Species so I had to check it out. Although there is quite a bit of CGI which I'm not a fan of they pull it off really well. I prefer animatronics and old school special effects and for me CGI often takes away from horror movies especially creature features, but this movie pulled it off really well.
Overall there wasn't anything I didn't like about this movie, being a biologist I love it when movies are accurate and this movie wasn't exactly on the ball but if it was it wouldn't have been as enjoyable, sometimes even a scientist has to just let it go and enjoy the ride, and I did and this movie was great!
