The horror movie Splice it’s from 2009, but since Netflix included it in its catalog, a new audience has been able to see it. Of those who clicked ‘play’ many were shocked by this haunting sci-fi story directed by Vincenzo Natali and played by Adrien Brody, Sarah Polley And Delphine Chaneac. But why? Splice would have been labeled a “traumatizing” and disturbing film, as stated by a user who wrote on social media: “This film made me physically ill”. “I saw SpliceI have never felt so disturbed in my life,” added another, followed by those who wondered why Netflix decided to “make such a traumatic film available to everyone”.

Splice: the plot of the movie

Splice tells of a young pair of scientists trying to introduce human DNA into their work of splicing animal genes. The people who work with them ask him to stop but Clive and Elsa decide to continue in secret and create a female creature that ages much faster than humans. The creature named Dren is moved to an isolated farm, but soon tires of being confined and wreaks havoc. It has gills, wings and a tail, and it certainly doesn’t look reassuring.

Many Netflix users today would like to forget it, but in part this sensation is offering new visibility to the title of the Canadian director already known for Cube of 1997. With a budget of 30 million dollars, Splice it made just $27.1 million at the box office and is produced by Guillermo Del Toro. It’s been quite a hit with fans with a 75% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but of the various scary and creepy movies Netflix has uploaded in recent months this one has made its mark in a peculiar way.
