Remember those sweet and totally NSFW pics from the sci-fi flick SPLICE? Thhheeeyyyy'reeeee baaaccckkk!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. On October 4th, 2007 I posted a bunch of images of a scarily hot mutant lady from an upcoming flick called SPLICE, starring Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody, directed by CUBE's Vincenzo Natali and produced by Guillermo Del Toro. CLICK HERE TO READ THE ORIGINAL STORY! The reaction was great as the images did indeed rule. However, we where hit by a cease and desist order from the lawyers of whomever held copyright on the images and had to remove the images or face legal action. I thought it was a surprising route to take considering the film was not on ANYBODY's radar until they got a glimpse of what it could look like. The casting of Polley and Brody along with Del Toro's name and those images are what got people talking about the movie. Why the big deal? Well, now we've been in touch with Guillermo Del Toro here at AICN and he, as producer, has given us permission to repost the images. So, hopefully we don't hear from any lawyers this time and you guys get to really enjoy the pics. Here they are! Again, NSFW, so shield the eyes of the children and continue forth!

    Yep, looks and sounds a lot like Species...

    by Sledge Hammer

    ...but with human mutation in place of the Giger designed reptile-like mutation that flick had. Does she escape the lab and go on a (misunderstood) rampage, while Brody desperately tries to stop her any way he can as well? Right now this could go either way, and this bunch of images convince me not one iota, personally I'll wait until I see a trailer or something and get a proper vibe about the flick from that before it earns a spot on my radar of things to watch out for.

    It DOES smell like Species....

    by UltimaRex

    ...I'm also getting a Primer vibe of the promo art. However, with Del Toro and the Cube guy behind this I bet it'll be better.

  • Nov. 4, 2007, 7:27 a.m. CST

    How exactly is this movie interesting?

    by moondoggy2u

    Its already committed three sins: its copying the premise of Species (which was just a play on the Alien creature), the fetus image seems a direct lift of Alien 3, and the creature just seems to be a spiffed up version of those on The Arrival. Judging by these stills and the premise, this film doesnt seem original or edgy, just hackneyed and cliche.<p>Of course, this has Del Toro's name attached to it, so I expect this site's objectivity will be checked at the door.

  • Nov. 4, 2007, 7:32 a.m. CST

    I'd fuck her

    by darrenspool

    She's definitely up the evolutionary ladder.

  • Nov. 4, 2007, 7:33 a.m. CST

    Dont get me wrong...

    by moondoggy2u

    The creature is obviously much better looking then those on Species and Arrival, but its hardly revolutionary. The plot, likewise, reads almost exactly like other films before it.<p>All I'm asking is why does this seem so interesting? Is it because of Del Toro? Naked tits? Cause if thats all its got going for it, count me out.

  • Nov. 4, 2007, 7:50 a.m. CST

    This chick is NOT hot. She's got the body of a 12-year-old asian boy. Christ, I can count her fucking ribs!! Since when did androgynous girls become the pinups for you sick little fucks? Back in the day, my pinups were the likes of Catherine Bach, Tawny Kitaen, and Cindy Crawford. Thats right, kiddies--the days when models actually had *gasp* breasts, and even asses! Oh yeah, they also had faces that didnt resemble aushwitz survivors, either. Yeah, I'm an old fart!

  • Nov. 4, 2007, 7:56 a.m. CST

    Wow, that was some fucked up shit

    by Vesuvio

    Meanwhile, AICN guys, I know I'd sound stupid for asking you to do that, but could you please (in some next opportunity) ask DelToro if he's familiarized with the game Silent Hill 2 and, if so, what would he say about directing it? Because if you ever played the game, you KNOW he is the man to do it. "Uterus" has DelToro written all over it.

    Premise of the movie sounds like Frankenstein

    by Octaveaeon

    People playing God is relevant now more than ever. I would like to see someone do a more traditional golem story though. When people talk of genetic experiments and cloning, they get too stuck in the scientific aspects. There is something inherently creepy about making man out of clay, more so than making AI or a genetically modified (neo)human, while the Promethean aspects are brought more fully into light. I wouldn't mind seeing Harry Mulisch's "The Procedure" for example.

    Yes, it is completely derivative...

    by Immortal_Fish

    ...and I will see it anyway because I love this kinda stuff and dig the talent involved. Del Toro has mastered Harryhausen's principle that the most terrifying monsters are the ones that appear peaceful when at rest. The profile image where she's holding the doll is amazing.

    Finger feet...

    by veritasses

    That's a good way to sprain, dislocate or break a finger. Fingers weren't designed for leg-based activities like running, jumping, sudden stops, quick change of direction etc especially with there's that extra reverse joint stuck in the middle of the calf. The tail, if it's meant to be used as counter balance, might also be a little small too. And instead of spaced out eyes, wider wrap around eyes, multiple eyes or multi-lens eyes might've made more sense. But that's just the nerd talking. I think the movies sounds pretty darned cool.

    This Script is AWFUL

    by Mr. Winston

    I know that no one here at AICN, much as I respect all of them, will have the balls to say anything bad about a project that del Toro is involved with, but this script and this story straight-up sucks. <br> <br> Imagine, if you will, a less-intelligent, less-believable, more Direct-to-Video version of SPECIES and you have this script. The last 30 pages are actually so bad that they're laughable. <br> <br> Go ahead and get excited about this one if you want, but remember that I told you you're going to be monumentally disappointed with it. I will go so far as to say that this movie could singlehandedly ruin Adrien Brody's career.

    Bird Bones

    by JimBobCooter

    If she flies, then she'd probably have hollow bones like a bird. So the hand/feet could work like bird claws. She'd be faster but not stronger than a human. Then again, after researching the design, they'll probably just make her super-powered anyway and forget physics.

    'Anorexia' vs. Health, & Whatever

    by Prague23

    You people are confusing 'being able to see the human form' with 'thinness' I believe.<p> See, 'healthy' people are not 'fat,' although they can be 'big boned' and 'healthy.' Some people have a shape or form which isn't 'brick like' and honestly is very much attractive, especially considering the female form. If you're a 'fatty' or if you can't appreciate 'fitness' or the like perhaps you've just got issues with yourself. <p>Don't criticize attractiveness of a women just because she has the time to appreciate the beautiful body nature/God/what have you has graced her with and she takes care of it. <p>And don't criticize people for finding 'healthy' (ie, thin) women attractive. Perhaps you should take the 30 minutes daily (or less) to care for yourself and learn about the common knowledge of proper diet which is EASY to maintain if you want to be healthy yourself, which can feel great once subscribed to and won't leave you hungry either. <p>I've lost around 50 pounds myself (in 6 months) and have maintained it through what I now consider to be 'daily exercise' & 'smart eating' which, once one finds the motivation to do & stick to, creates a healthy appearance. Which is, yup, a thinner one. <p>Seriously, just because an actress (probably aware of such practices) looks 'in shape' doesn't mean she has an eating disorder. I'm not saying to be sexy you have to be thin, nor am I saying that thinness is the only way to be 'sexy' just that if someone happens to be that way, you shouldn't shun her because your own GF makes a comment about 'what is realistic or typical.' You're just justifying an unhealthy lifestyle and all the socio-political injustice that influences and in fact supports that sad existence. <p>It's mostly not about diet, but about exercise for the most of us. God knows, for me, it takes a strong principle of both.<p>This film gives nod to many others so far but genetics is a muse for horror films for the foreseeable future and this looks like a great and horrifying next step (if only a sideways one) along that genre's collection of talent. I'm looking forward to this and hope it scares the (bleep) out of me.

    opposable thumbs

    by Napoleon Park

    and fingers on toes might be good from grabbing or typing, but not too practical for walking. Especially as they get older and osteoporisis sets in. I practically sprained my thumb just getting up from a chair, I wouldn't want to salk on my hands. <p> Not all mammals have enlarged modified sweat glands to produce milk... but who wants to fuck a dolphin?<p>That could be a new reality show during the writers strike: "Who wants to fuck a dolphin?" Hosted by Regis Philbin and Sandra Oh.

    Uh, Prague

    by moondoggy2u

    I'd hate to break it to you, but if you think its healthy for a woman's ribs to show like that, then you are living in a reality all your own. I'm not saying its healthy to be fat or that thin is unsexy. All I'm saying is that if your ribs are as visable as that girl's, then you are not healthy--you are malnourished. My wife runs marathons, my friend, and helps coach some of the local girls for cross country running as well. Beleive me when I tell you that I'm around all kinds of women in all various forms and when someone's ribs look like that (especially given her lack of muscualture) she isn't "fit;" she is borderlined anorexic and is most definitely malnourished.

    She's a fucking bald hybrid thing with raptor feet and bug wings, maybe the ribs showing is a healthy thing for her. It's not like little girls are going to stick their fingers down their throats to look like her either.

    Feet look a bit impractical, but I am quibbling - that's awesome

    by Harry Weinstein

    And yes, barring vaginal fangs or other such unpleasantness, I'd totally fuck whatever the hell that is, completely on general principles. I normally won't eat anything that's been genetically altered but I'd certainly make an exception here. (Mutants, aliens, scientifically altered genetic freaks - fuck them when you can and leave them smiling, because you probably aren't getting another chance to do so. As a bonus you get hellified bragging rights over your friends - how many of them ever got to fuck one of those things? None, that's how many.) ANYway, if I survive the experience, I'm almost certain to get some sexually transmitted superpowers which I can then use for charitable good on weekdays while earning my keep as a no-bullshit bouncer at a posh New York nightclub on the weekends. Man's gotta eat if he wants to keep the Down's Syndrome Devil Tailed Gene Freak satisfied in the sack, thus allowing me to build up my powers even further via the aforementioned sexual transmission. And so on, and so forth - I got the shit covered, homepiss.

    by Mr. Winston

    Funnily enough, I offered to do a script review for AICN. They've used several of my reviews and tips in the past, but I didn't hear from them this time. Perhaps they didn't deem my opinion worthy, which is totally possible, but do you think they're going to print something negative about a del Toro project? <br> <br> That said, maybe they're on to something - this script doesn't deserve a review. In lieu of one I'll set you up with some quick hits: <br> <br> --This doesn't actually have anything to do with aliens whatsoever; the "girl" in question is the result of a rogue lab experiment carried out by two genetic engineers. They never really say, other than human, what they spliced together to make her. <br> <br> --The geneticists in question here are dating. They're "rockstars" in their field, and when they're not in the lab they're partying it up at discos (seriously) as they dodge assassination attempts (seriously again). <br> <br> --The "splice" is supposed to be killed because the procedure used to create it is illegal, but the female geneticist - who up until the splice was steadfastly against children - becomes attached to it. For months as it grows they hide it in the lab. They hide it - from all of their colleagues and the people who pay for their research and are around the lab constantly. For months. A semi-human hybrid. When the splice nearly outs itself, they care for it at an abandoned farm. <br> <br> --There are two sex scenes in the movie. Let your imagination do the work for you. One you could probably guess. The other so insanely redefines idiotic that you'll think they're trying to trick you. <br> <br> Now that I think about it, maybe this is genius. People will be hailing this as one of the worst films ever with perhaps the most preposterous and unintentionally hilarious ending in cinema history. Maybe that will attract a following.

    by zinc_chameleon

    Or are your interests purely scientific? Anyway...she could have hollow bones and still be stronger that a human. Strength is a function of muscle fiber density and tendon connection, not muscle size. But...she will still be only to hop and glide, like a tree-squirrel. To fly, she'd need a 100-foot wingspan, and 3-feet deep chest muscles. Physics is a bitch.
