I'm surprised you guys haven't talked about this yet. I'm too lazy to write much about it, so here's the Wikipedia page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splice_(film)

I enjoy it, it's been a while since something with anything an average moviegoer would find 'disturbing'. Is it bad that I find Dren really attractive?

It was sort of interesting. The girl scientist just made me cringe because you KNOW it's going to go wrong and then she keeps on going anyway in that almost-unrealistic manner.

Same thing as with when the guy starts to have the romance with Dren and then everyone's like no no NOOOOOOOOo and then it happens anyway.

The prototype-grub things are adorable though.

It was pretty predictable, won't lie there, and yeah, Fred and Ginger are adorable.

Woman scientist's emotional journey was rather jerky and rapid. Considering how deep she was into the "IT'S MY LITTLE GIRL" delusion I'd have expected it to take a lot more than it did to shatter that.

I really liked the Splice contest that went on deviantArt when the movie was being released.

I loved splice, there aren't enough movies that focus on monsters, especially nowadays. Del Toro ALWAYS focuses on monsters, he's like the only guy that does it in film anymore.
Pan's labyrinth, splice, don't be afraid of the dark, hellboy, ect.

He was the guy that was supposed to direct the mountains of madness movie, but 20th century fox thought it was too risky to make a big budget rated R film. He had all of the monsters created for it and everything when they changed their minds to no.

Them poor penguins.

JUST THINK OF THE PENGUINS : ((((

Didn't it basically take her turning into a man and raping her to shatter it? I might not be remembering it well. (Side note, loved that line "INSIIIIIIIDE!")

Thought the movie was sorta completely terrible though. Badly written, bad plot flow in general, just something I really can't get into. But the early designs were pretty cool, I'll admit.

I think it was Dren killing the cat in defiance that set her off. But it totes makes sense 'cos her mom was crazy so she doesn't need reasons to do stuff.

It wasn't a terrible movie though. I liked it.

I remember watching this movie. I wasn't that big on it, but it was ok. Just seemed to kind of... fall short of its expectations, I guess? Like it kept building and then just decided "nah fuck that"
