Story


Clive and Elsa are superstars of the genetic engineering world. They specialize in splicing together DNA from different animals to create fantastical new hybrids. The charismatic couple wants to use human DNA in a new hybrid - something that could yield astronomical medical benefits. The pharmaceutical company that funds their research, however, is more interested in exploiting their earlier triumphs for easier, short-term profit. Clive and Elsa secretly conduct their own experiment. The result is Dren: an amazing creature who exhibits an array of unexpected developments, both physical and intellectual. Dren exceeds their wildest dreams... and, ultimately, their most terrifying nightmare.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..It begins with such promise, a kinky modernist twist on a classical sci-fi morality tale. That it degenerates into conventional, genre horror is all the more disappointing..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..Beware of unassuming nerds, warns Splice..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..while it's far from perfect, it's a timely and well-considered thriller about the scarier aspects of genetic engineering..”
by Jeff Shannon [Seattle Times]
