SPLICE Movie Creature, DREN

Updated on March 7, 2011

What is SPLICE and who is DREN

Splice centres on two renowned young scientists (Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley) that are quasi-famous for successfully creating a new species of animal, a species with enormous pharmaceutical industry potential in the form of an ability to secrete profitable proteins. Despite a refusal by their company bosses to approve the next stage of the project, or anything that tampers with human DNA, their ambitions lead them to create a human-animal hybrid by combining human genes with those of the created species. This in turn leads to the creation of a new entity they name Dren, which they raise and attempt to study as a personal project concealed from their employers and colleagues.

The story becomes highly engrossing as we follow the creature's development alongside that of the two scientists. The two central performances are well-judged, but the real star is Dren; or the CGI responsible for her creation, which is always convincing and solid at all stages of the creature's evolution. This blog is all about Dren and the different stages we see her go through during the course of the film.

Infant Stage

When they first create DREN, she is just a science experiment. They had no idea what the creature would look like or how it would develop. When we first see the creature she looks far more animal than she does human, but as an infant the creature is like a small timid animal not knowing where they are or what there doing.

Young Child Stage

Since DREN develops at a highly fast rate she becomes a child within weeks and once this happens we see her becoming far more human very quickly. She begins to identify shapes and then soon even words. The first word she spells out is NERD which is why they end up naming her DREN which is nerd spelled backward.

Teenage Stage

During her teenage stage she starts developing into not only a pretty girl but she begins to become very curious about the world going on around her. She is still exploring her new found curiosity to her hunting and sexual sides but because of this she begins to get restless with being just a lab rat, she wants to start exploring the world on her own which she is not allowed to do.

Adult Stage

Already starting to misbehave as a teenager when she fully develops into an adult she becomes hostile. As and adult we discover she has an unhealthy crush on her "father figure" and this leads to a very dangerous and unfortunate sexual scene between them both. As well as ruining her relationship with her father she ends up threatning her "mother figure" with her spiked tail which is her own genetically enhanced weapon.

DREN as an adult is when the plot really begins to take a whole different turn in the story and truly left me with my eyes wide and my mouth open. I will not give the full ending away but there is still one more stage of life DREN goes through but you have to watch the movie to find out!
