To add a little more to why I liked Splice - DNA intervention movies, if well acted and even a little plausible, really get me in. And Splice was all of those. The journey that Dren took them on, morally and scientifically, was really well done. Great imagination from the creator/writer. I wrote a novel with a few vaguely similar concepts and all things being equal, it will come out next year... my editor recommended turning it into a screenplay... so I did a screenplay intensive course a few years back - such a different medium. Can't wait to get into it once finishing my present project.
OK.
Congrats on the novel.

Yeah, i first watched Splice simply for the director, Vincenzo Natali. Saw Splice as part of MIFF and loved it.
Saw it a couple of times since then, and it doesn't have quite the same impact.....but first viewing blew me away.

His movies are worth watching, especially those he has written and directed. Splice, Cube, Nothing.....and i haven't seen his latest one In The Tall Grass yet.

With all that in mind....and along similar lines to Ex Machina you should watch "Morgan". You'll like that one too.

Yep, some movies definitely are better left to a single viewing. I recall the scene in Splice ***spoiler alert*** where the two other critters suddenly turned on each other in front of all the investors... but that was the only weakness, IMHO, in the script... though the reason for them suddenly turning on each other was great and plausible - think I might have had a small scene or two that hinted that all was not well with them but our lead characters ignored the warning due to the imperative of funding. Just thoughts.

Where will I find 'Morgan'? Went looking on Stan and Netflix last night but no joy... sounds intriguing.

Splice has been left wide open for a sequel... so many ways it could go!

Thank you, GTC. A labour of love! Would have had the present project -- biblical supernatural thriller -- finished last year only good old PTSD floored me for a few months. Not complaining, just the way it is... on that, as an aside, helping out the RSL with the veterans suicide prevention task force - another passion.
Youre a selfless legend Baggers, chin up always with your battles and remember to take the time for yourself also.

Its on Disney + at the moment. I think it used to be on Stan, must've just changed.
