Anybody out there remember that mid-90’s Natasha Henstridge sci-fi flick Species, where scientists meld human DNA with the DNA of aliens, only to create a stunningly hot hybrid that goes on murderous softcore sex frenzies? No? OK, good, then you’ll love the trailer for the new film Splice, in which scientists meld human DNA with the DNA of animals, only to create… a stunningly hot hybrid that goes on murderous softcore sex frenzies. Intriguing, no?
Kidding aside, the trailer for the Vincenzo Natali (director of Cube) film does look fairly interesting, if a little odd and/or cheesy at times (that depends on whether you like your movie monsters as bald, winged women with fangs). That said, the director’s enthusiastic description of the film to Shock Till You Drop is enough to keep me cautiously optimistic:
“This is a serious film and an emotional one. And there’s sex… Very unconventional sex. The centerpiece of the movie is a creature which goes through a dramatic evolutionary process. The goal is to create something shocking but also very subtle and completely believable.”
Check out the trailer, below…
Splice is set to be released on June 4th with distribution by Warner Bros.
What do you think of the trailer?
