Splice: This Ain’t Your Daddy’s The Kindred

Speaking of FRINGE SCIENCE, Splice trailer, you guys:

Plot synposis for the 1987 horror movie, The Kindred (from CHUD):

Dr. Amanda Hollins is a dying molecular biologist who asks her son, John, to fulfill her final wish that all of her experiments, including her “Anthony journals,” be destroyed. All that she’ll tell John about Anthony is that he’s his brother. What she doesn’t tell John is that Anthony is half of John’s DNA, and half sea creature. And Anthony doesn’t exactly have the best attitude. When he gets loose, the typical ’80s monster flick hijinks ensue.

Plot synopsis for the 2010 horror movie, Splice (from IMDB):

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. When she gets loose, the typical ’10s monster flick hijinks ensue.

FACT: flying chimera DNA is the new sea monster DNA. Also, “if we don’t use human DNA now, someone else will” is a really solid argument, and I hope the next line of dialogue is just her resting her case.
