Splice

Movie • 2009 • Horror  

Report
Elsa and Clive, two young rebellious scientists, defy legal and ethical boundaries and forge ahead with a dangerous experiment: splicing together human and animal DNA to create a new organism. Named "Dren", the creature rapidly develops from a deformed female infant into a beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera, who forges a bond with both of her creators - only to have that bond turn deadly.
This movie contains 44 potentially triggering events.

At around 41:45 - 42:55 There is a tense scene where Clive holds toddler Dren underwater until she stops moving. However, her amphibious lungs allow her to survive. Whether he was intentionally trying to hurt Dren or save her is left up to interpretation.

The creature kills a cat at about 1:11:10. It lasts for only around 10 seconds but is extremely upsetting to watch if you are sensitive to animal harm

Elsa ties dren down when she’s in her adult form, she also removes all of her clothes for no particular reason other than anger (it seems) which adds another layer of discomfort

at 1:18:25 the creature forces itself on one of the characters who tells it to stop. Though the character engages despite his initial refusal, and the scene escalates until 1:20:40 when another character finds them.
at 1:35:00- about 1:36:00 the creature forces itself on another character, the scene is horribly uncomfortable.

Elsa (the main girl) is raped at the end of the film and it’s extremely graphic and disturbing, unsure of the time stamp but it’s right after the male version of dren chases her through the woods. She also becomes pregnant. Definitely skip this part if you’re sensitive to SA

At the very end it’s safe to assume one of the main characters suffers ptsd, she was raped which followed in a pregnancy and then her husband was murdered. But it’s not directly stated she has ptsd.

there is a sex scene at 45:20 - 46:45
at 1:12:50 the creature is stripped naked for a surgery. It is not really a sexual scene but it is very uncomfortable, especially with the seemingly unnecessary nudity
Honestly I would recommend just not watching this movie if you're sensitive to sexual content at all, it has some very upsetting and unnecessary scenes that absolutely ruin an already bad movie.

While Dren is humanoid, she’s still a different species. Her havingnsex with a human man is technically beastiality.

There is a sexual relationship between a man and a creature he raised. While it is not biologically related to him, it is to his wife, and he is its clear father figure.
