Splice is a June 2010 Sci-Fi/Thriller starring Adrien Brody. The plot centers around two scientists, who perfect the splicing of DNA together. When there latest test is a success, and they create a new organism, things begin to fall downhill fast.
The creature rapidly develops from a deformed female infant into a beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera, who forges a bond with both of her creators – only to have that bond turn deadly.
The Official Scoop
Clive and Elsa are a pair of brilliant scientists whose cutting-edge experiments in genetic engineering make them superstars in their field. As devoted to their careers as they are to one another, they start conducting unauthorized experiments with new animal species that show great promise.
Drunk with their god-like powers, they introduce human DNA into one of their creations, producing a creature that is greater than the sum of its parts: a rapidly developing animal/human hybrid that may be a step up on the evolutionary ladder. While this female creature inspires maternal feelings in Elsa, she evokes something far-from-paternal in Clive, something that poses a threat to them all.
Then, when this seemingly perfect organism makes a final, shocking metamorphosis, it is mankind itself that is threatened.
