Overview

Splinter

CGI effects wizard and versatile cinema Renaissance man Toby Wilkins directed this shocker, which is set in and around a remote gas station, where a vicious, virus-like entity invades the body of human victims and instills in them an unquenchable thirst for human blood. On their way into the wilderness for a romantic weekend alone, a young couple is carjacked by a desperate escaped criminal and his devious girlfriend. Later, as the mismatched couples head ever deeper into the woods, they unknowingly become targeted by a parasitic creature that absorbs the corpses of its human victims. The situation goes from bad to worse when the four travelers seek shelter at an abandoned gas station, and the insatiable creature begins taking them over one by one. With no means of telling who's been infected and who can still be trusted, the prospect of anyone escaping with their lives grows increasingly dim with each passing minute.

One of the best low-budget horror films I have seen in years. This is what you do with a film when you have limited resources: use what you don't have to your advantage. I love films about seclusion, where the characters are cut off from society. What a great way to set the scene than to seclude our characters in a remote gas station. My only reason I rated this one as a 4 star was the fact that this film was a little hard to follow and the camera shots made the attack sequences a little hard to distinguish. Other than that this is an amazing film. This is only the second film I've ever screamed during. I love horror movies so I don't get scared too easily. What a great film! On a final note; Shea Whigham was incredible in this film. If you really want to see him act more check out "Take Shelter." This is one incredible actor. Watch out for him.

Pretty decent horror movie with good monster special effects. Likeable cast.. Good ending... If you liked the Thing we're sure you'll like this one. Enjoy monster lovers! Enjoy!
