We’ve got a new clip, a new hi-res image and some additional (read: old) images from Splice, the upcoming sci-fi/horror from director Vincenzo Natali (Cube). The film stars Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley (Dawn of the Dead) as two scientists who start playing with DNA splicing and have it all turn out well…or not.
The film has been making the festival rounds but still no word on when it might get a U.S. release. Hopefully the clip and these images provided by Bloody-Disgusting will help pique YOUR interests so that we can get a proper look at this film over here in the states.
Here’s the official synopsis for Splice:
Clive and Elsa are young, brilliant and ambitious. The new animal species they engineered have made them rebel superstars of the scientific world. In secret, they introduce human DNA into the experiment. The result is something that is greater than the sum of its parts: a female animal-human hybrid that may be a step up on the evolutionary ladder. They think they may have created the perfect organism, until she makes a final shocking metamorphosis that could destroy them … and the rest of humanity.
Sounds kind of interesting, right? Let’s see how it looks:
Watching that I couldn’t help but imagine an uncooked Thanksgiving turkey suddenly jumping up out of the sink and running off, LOL! Still, some of the images you’re about to see let you know how serious things get for Clive and Elsa as their creature starts to – ahem – “mature.”
