There are two kinds of summer movies: hugely expensive blockbusters, and cheesefests starring formerly respected actors who are just picking up a paycheck to support their heroin habit. You get one guess what camp “Splice” falls into.
The plot, in a nutshell: genetic scientists splice human DNA with a rat or something and create a freaky mutant kid. Hilarity ensues. So in other words it’s “Species” without Natasha Henstridge or the shameless sexploitation angle. It’s kind of a shame because Vincenzo Natali, the director, put together the really fun “Cube” back in the ’90s, and hasn’t done anything that’s gotten a decent release since.
