Sure it may not be super original but I'll see it. There are a couple of reviews already at IMDB.com

I've had my eye on this project for months... I wish it would hurry up and get released!

The screenplay was great. I hear the movie itself isn't as good.

Re: 'Splice' Sci-Fi/horror film from Cube Director

first trailer
for Vincenzo Natali’s “Splice”.
http://www.scificool.com/first-trail...atalis-splice/

video length 2:15

Heavy on the thriller/horror genres from this trailer's music & editing style.
I'll go see it anyway as I'm up for the science fiction.

Re: video

I thought it looked really interesting and spotted David Hewitt (Rodney McKay from Stargate Atlantis)!

Re: 'Splice' Sci-Fi/horror film from Cube Director

I saw a clip from this movie at WonderCon. It was the full sequence where the woman puts her arm in the incubator. It was very creepy and good. The director had some interesting things to say as well.

This one looks like its going to be good.

I'm a big fan of Natali, so I look forward to this. And David Hewlett has been in every feature Natali has directed so far (as well as one of his shorts, Elevated). They're friends from way back, apparently. I was sort of surprised Natali never directed an episode of Atlantis.

Looks okay. Slightly more generic looking than I'd expect from the person who brought us Cube though.

Wasn't sure about the concept, trailer has made me more intrigued, and I like the work of Natali, and the fact Hewett is in it makes me even more interested.

I think Hewlett and Natali have been friends since Natali had him in a short film he made before Cube, since then he's been in like 5 or 6 of Natali's projects.
