Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley star as two superstar genetic engineers who specialize in combining DNA from different animals to create incredible new hybrids. Now they want to use human DNA to revolutionize science and medicine in an amazing human-animal Splice. But when the pharmaceutical company funding their research forbids it, Clive (Brody) and Elsa (Polley) conduct their own experiments. The result is Dren, an amazing, strangely beautiful creature who exhibits uncommon intelligence and an array of unexpected physical developments. Dren exceeds their wildest dreams as she grows and learns at an accelerated rate ... and threatens to become their worst nightmare.

Critics Consensus: It doesn't take its terrific premise quite as far as it should, but Splice is a smart, well-acted treat for horror fans.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Splice is a monster movie that's not particularly bloody or gory but has many intense, shocking situations that have the potential to deeply disturb sensitive viewers. On top of this, the movie also involves some thorny sexual situations (between human and quasi-human) and lots of foul language, including multiple uses of "f--k" and "s--t." The movie raises several complex ethical and moral questions around the creation of life and the meaning of family that has the potential to intrigue and/or offend. Either way, it's a real conversation-starter.
