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

I wouldn't say it's filled with either.

You could probably say Brody "raped" Dren but only in a "statutory" sense. Dren at that point is about the age of a older teen but, probably, still mentally a child. Honestly, I'm not entirely clear on why Brody's character tapped it other than for shock value. Even his "defense" of Dren looking like Sarah Polly's chraracter doesn't completely wash.

Misogyny... I'm not so sure. I wouldn't say so, really. Honestly, I don't think this movie is quite that deep.

The child-abuse thing.... Ehhhh maybe, but considering the extreme circumstances of this "child" that thing doesn't work either.

Sexy International Poster for Splice

http://www.shockya.com/news/2010/06/...splice-poster/

review:
such a comparison is simply asinine. "Species" was the kind of film that keeps sci-fi in the trash ghetto, whereas "Splice", with it's nuanced characterization, brisk but coherent pacing, and consistently logical plotting, is the kind of film that brings the genre steadily further up the ladder of class and respectability.
Another glowing review of Vincenzo Natali's SPLICE
