The international poster for SPLICE will toy with your emotions

There's a two step transformation you will go through as a human being when you check out the poster for Vincenzo Natali's (CUBE) new film. Step 1: You will become strangely aroused, just as you become strangely confused about yourself. Step 2: You will likely feel shame out of your confusion. Shame mixed with lingering hints of arousal. But mostly shame.

As someone who has seen the unconventional sci-fi tale of genetics, I am here to tell you that these feelings are okay. Perfectly normal, in fact. Well, maybe not normal, but more normalish. But do not be alarmed. Your moral compass has just been tampered with by a proverbial magnetic field if you will, which is exactly the journey that Clive Nicoli (Adrien Brody) and Elsa Kast (Sarah Polley) unknowingly start down when they splice together human DNA with animal DNA to create a completely new hybrid organism named Dren.

Check out the poster after the breast break (warning: It may not be safe for your work. Unless your work is a genetic lab where they are cool with this stuff). But only after you check out our interview with Mr. Natali HERE and our review from Sundance HERE. But not before you check out SPLICE when it hits theaters this Friday, June 4.
