Splinter (2008) Review:

Splinter is not a big Hollywood movie, it was done with a small budget and has surprised everyone by how good it actually was, and how good it actually looks!  The concept of the monster-parasite hybrid creature is quite inventive and at least, is something new! It has cool features such as the possibility to attack people from far, infect people quite badly, feed to grow, etc. This sets a simple series of rules which are pretty well respected throughout the movie, and the characters fight by these rules (and if you read a few reviews, you’ll now know how much I like a movie which set simple but efficient rules). The main one, which is that the splinter creature hunt using temperature, is really well exploited!
