  • Played as a child by Abigail Chu and as an adult by Delphine Chanéac, Dren morphs into a special-effects miracle, sexy and scary in equal doses. show more

  • For all its surface seriousness, Splice is a regulation monster movie. So however somber it gets, it's never truly thought-provoking, and however outrageous it gets, it's still always 20 minutes behind the audience. It's just too dumb to be serious and too slow to be entertaining. Read more: show more

  • The film takes itself frivolously when that's appropriate--some of it is charmingly silly--and seriously when, as is often the case, all sorts of good surprises are unleashed. show more

    Horrible! I can't believe it is one of the best movies of the year, according to AOL. It was silly, stupid, and boring! It was also gross at times. The characters made infuriatingly bad decisions. It looked like a VERY low-budget "scary" (which is wasn't) movie.
