h/t to Jill Stanek on Facebook for the heads up on this human/animal hybrid sci-fi/horror movie out this weekend. I hadn’t heard anything about it until today and I’m going to try to see it sometime next week – if I can get my little sister, a horror movie fan (which, with very few exceptions, I am not usually) to come see it with me. The trailer:
Said the movie’s star, Adrian Brody: “We’re living in a world where science fiction has become a reality” (see the video clip below). Indeed. See my post Why We Need to Ban Cloning, ASAP (note: no cloning, either fully human or human/animal, is banned in the United States)!!
Out of 129 reviews so far, Splice has a 74% Fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes.
Jill Stanek has a review (with spoilers) of Splice up on her blog. Not sure I want to go see it now. Not that I was expecting it to be a real great movie anyway.
–I’m still in the process of getting through Dean Koontz’ Frankenstein series transhumanism. I’m in the middle of book 2 of 3 and it’s very interesting, though I’m starting to agree with my mother who thinks it could (should) have just been one book.
–I enjoyed Michael Chrichton’s biotechnology thriller Next. Though, I think he went a little overboard on the different story lines, some of which didn’t even come together in the end.
