Re: 'Splice' Sci-Fi/horror film from Cube Director
I saw it tonight. I won't give away much about the "plot" but more about the experience, behind the cut ...
I have not seen a movie so unintentionally funny since Plan Nine From Outer Space. Oh yeah, it tries to be worse. It's like a Saturday night "sci fi original movie" with a huge budget.
Once I realized I was watching a comedy, it became even funnier. Yes, the dialog is terrible, the plot nonexistent, and the ending was all but telegraphed from the very first scene. I heard one guy behind me say "The MST3K writes itself!" and it's true. This movie is destined to be mocked at midnight showings for years, in a desperate attempt to create the successor to Rocky Horror Picture Show.
There are a few mildly "scary" scenes (as in, they might scare a five year old), with a few minutes of female nudity (though they're all prosthetics so I'm not sure if it even counts), with a heavy dose of the "f" word in quite a few scenes.
If you get a chance, by all means, go see it. Just have the right expectations when you do.
"Sorry. Wrong movie, buddy."
