When it comes to cult-classics, a reinvention, a re-imagining, or a remaking can never come close to the soul the original posses. Growing up, ‘Species’ was one of my favorite movies. The new film ‘Splice’ isn’t a reboot, or a sequel to ‘Species’, but seems to have to same feel. A feel that got my attention. Two young scientists (Brody and Polley) achieve fame by splicing human DNA with the DNA of different animals to create a new creature. In the process they ignore their society’s ethical and legal boundaries. The scientist’s name their creature “Dren,” which is initially a deformed infant. However, it rapidly develops into a deadly, winged human-chimera. Click the pic to check the trailer.
