A hidden gem. I'd never even heard of this one and checked it out on a whim. Two couples are trapped in a gas station and hunted by a truly original and creepy monster. Stylistically, Splinter is pretty straight forward, but the creature is genuinely imaginative both in its design and use. This one's worth seeking out.

By E. Valero TOP 1000 REVIEWER on March 17 2015
Format: DVD
Seth Belzer and Polly Watt (Paulo Costanzo and Jill Wagner), are a young, charming couple celebrating their anniversary and vacationing in the ancient forests of Oklahoma where the intellectual Seth spends most of his time blabbing about the age of trees and the incredibly gorgeous Polly discusses making love under the stars. Anyhow, they are car jacked by 2 escaped convicts, Dennis (Shea Whigham) and his rather charmless (character not the actress), drug addicted girlfriend Lacey (Rachel Kerbs). When they experience an unexpected flat tire, they go to a nearby gas station that appears to be abandoned and where they soon discover a ferocious parasitic prickly life-form that is hell bent in devouring them. Trapped within the locked gas station, they are forced to play a game of "Survivor" and must find a way to outplay, outwit and outlast the ever evolving predator or they too will become its prey.

Directed by Toby Wilkins ("The Grudge 3"), "Splinter" is a not-so-original monster movie but technically well-made and provides just enough suspense and gore to elevate this above others in the genre. Be warned despite this not being an annoying "found footage" feature, there is a lot of quick, jolting, shaky camera work and this may become irritating and give you a bit of a headache and the thorny fiend is shown a lot, but we never really get a good look at it; depending on the viewer, this is a either a positive or a negative. For me, it is a positive. There is nothing more annoying than showing your less than perfect monster too much. Unless they are spectacular to behold like the refined, glistening xenomorphs in the "Alien" franchise, other, less polished looking monsters deserve to be given some mystery.

Awesome movie.

This Region B/2 UK version works with a Region A/1 player. I was a bit iffy buying this at first so I did some research and found someone mention that it works with Region A/1 players. I decided to take a risk because it costs much less than the American version and I like the cover art better. I'm writing this here to confirm that it does work!

I would say is a suspense movie. Not a great movie, but not a bad movie either. I found it an interesting type of movie in the sense of how this thing came to be.
