'Creature Clip' From SPLICE
Coming hot on the heels of its Sitges premiere, aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes has the first footage available of the film for us not in Spain.    The scene involves young geneticists Elsa (Sarah Polley) and Clive (Adrian Brody) and their first encounter with their peculiar creation which looks like a hairless cross between a prairie dog and a chicken.  Want to see that thing on the left move around and break lab stuff?

nice! great atmosphere. but that stupid lady scientist deserves a good smack. the creature looks completely real.

I've been looking forward to this for quite some time now. The creature looks very cool, and yes, realistic.

Heh. That 'stupid lady scientist' happens to be a Canadian national Treasure (and occasional zombie killer)..

WOW. Just wow. Looks stunning. But I'd just like to ask what DNA they spliced to gether to get THAT?

I know Kurt, + she was great in Beowulf and Grendel. It's her character who's recklessly endangering herself and ignoring logic and her husband that I'm talking about. Polley is beautiful and seriously talented. Reminds me of one of my cutest exes. But the character she plays reminds me of some stubborn and self endangering ladies that have made my blood boil...

Have you seen the film fhoom? It is interesting where her character goes in the film, and this scene is consistent with her 'trust and recklessness.'

I look forward to see the film, very much. She seems to perfectly balance the scientist with the childless mother even in that short scene. By the way Kurt, your picture looks like a curious splice of young Brian Eno with Nicole Kidman...

Heh. A very well kept Canadian Horror-ish film secret, even moreso than Ginger Snaps or Fido or Splice....

that's cool Kurt. It's kind of weird to see a woman named Kurt, if you see what I mean. The film looks special, that redhead must be quite a personage.

A Canadian actress, friends of mine keep promising to do an intro when I'm in Montreal. I'm not sure if it is creepy or not (for her...) to meet person that has been using her likeness (albeit in make-up and 'photoshop') as an avatar for the greater part of a decade....but I'm sure things will be fine.
