'Splinter'

'Splinter'

Alright, I'll be honest, when I first heard the concept for 'Splinter' I instantly had low expectations. HOWEVER, When I decided to check it out for a nice indie horror movie laugh, my expectations were blown out of the water! Anybody else feel that way?? I'd like to hear your veiws on the film. It reminded me somewhat of John Carpenter's 'The Thing'... Share with me!

It was a good movie! I actually went in with high expectations since a number of people who had already seen it said it was great...My two friends who I watched it with, however, HATED IT. Don't know why, I found it hilarious and the effects to be nicely done. I guess it can throw people off in the beginning, but that doesn't make it horrible movie. Gotta catch that one again, haven't seen it in forever! :)

I know, for a lower budget movie, they really packed in some decent FX. The creators really outdid themselves.

I enjoyed it completely. Lately since not too much had been coming out in mainstream horror, I have been renting a lot of flicks. I also have a friend who travels internationally and when he comes by, he tries to bring flicks. I was expecting junk, even by the description and was pleasantly surprised. Def an enjoyable movie and the creature effects were excellent. Its NOT on a par with the THING which I consider perfection, but it rocked.

This one suprised me with how freakin awesome it was.  I went into it thinking it would be another class B horror flick, with cheezy acting.  But WOW, was I impressed.  I have to agree, I immediately thought of John Carpenter's "The Thing".  But overall, I really enjoyed this one.  Im known as the B queen, so my friends were not all that impressed when I suggested them to watch this.  However, when they did, they were thankfull.

I'VE WATCHED THIS MOVE A COUPLE OF TIMES AND I LIKED IT BOTH TIMES.   I AGREE THAT THE FX WAS DONE VERY WELL FOR A SMALL BUGET MOVIE, THE CREATURE DID REMIND ME OF THE THING, WHICH IS OK BECAUS THET DIDN'T COPY ANYTHING FROM THE THING.  I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHERE DID THE SPLINTER COME FROM? BUT ALL IN ALL IT IS A WORHT THE WATCH MOVIE.
