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 scientists name their creature "Dren," which is initially a deformed infant. However, it rapidly develops into a deadly, winged human-chimera.
According to the director: "Splice is very much about our genetic future and the way science is catching up with much of the fiction out there. "[This] is a serious film and an emotional one. And there’s sex... Very unconventional sex. The centerpiece of the movie is a creature which goes through a dramatic evolutionary process. The goal is to create something shocking but also very subtle and completely believable."
