15th Anniversary – 35mm Screening!

Genetic engineers Clive Nicoli (Adrien Brody, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL) and Elsa Kast (Sarah Polley, DAWN OF THE DEAD) achieve fame by successfully splicing together the DNA of different animals to create incredible new hybrid animals. Now they want to use human DNA in a hybrid that could revolutionize science and medicine. But the pharmaceutical company that funds their research forbids it, instead mandating that their department be reorganized to focus on finding & extracting certain proteins from the creatures they have already created. Not wishing to spend all their time engaged in what they consider mundane research for the next 5-10 years, Clive and Elsa secretly conduct their own experiments, blending human DNA with that of other animals. From director Vincenzo Natali (CUBE, IN THE TALL GRASS).

2009, 104 minutes, USA/Canada/France, Rated R, Directed by Vincenzo Natali

  • “Daring, disturbing and deliciously twisted.”

    – Tom Long, DETROIT NEWS
  • “A must-see for sci-fi and horror nuts!”

    – Jen Yamato, MOVIES.COM
  • “The outstanding creature effects by Howard Berger only get more astonishing as Splice splits into an eerie horror picture, then divides again into something out of Rosemary's Baby.”

    – Lisa Schwarzbaum, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
  • “This Cronenbergian exploration of the perils of inter-species gene-splicing wrestles with some topical and disturbing ideas.”
