Editorial Reviews

Somewhere prowling in the darkest corner of a desolate, abandoned building on the edge of a wilderness is a dangerous animal. It's a human animal that lives by the rules of the wild, where survival is the only concern.

This creature of the night uses cunning and instinct to hunt and kill for pleasure. He has no qualms about his actions; he lives by his desires and he'll take what he wants.

SOPHIE, a teenager with a troubled past, strays into the abandoned building on a dare. She discovers what it's like to become the object of this animal's obsessive desire when she's locked in an isolated room, where no one can hear her screams.

In the night, sitting in the pitch black, waiting for the inevitable, Sophie is terrified by the the obsessive stare through the skylight of the impromptu jail.

Daylight brings GAVIN. He keeps the animal at bay as best he can. A protector of sorts, but a protector who also keeps her locked away. What bizarre relationship does this self appointed jailer have with the elusive prowling creature beyond the door?

Sophie's attempts at escape repeatedly end in failure, but she clings to the hope that she will be rescued by her friends, despite her fears of what might happen to them, if they come too close to the vicious animal?

2.0 out of 5 stars dont waste any money on this one October 5, 2012
By .fgd
Format:DVD
The other reviews have told what it's about. Goes from good ok to dull into screaming games of hide and seek . Alot of chasing about to escape a biting degenerate .The acting is good enough but perhaps playing no more than themselves.
This film had a chance at originality if the leading girl had kept going with her hallucinary over-laps than a predictable screen-play.
Want a good British horror flick? Watch Creep instead

With a badly written screenplay and filmmaking with some clichéd elements, Splintered (2010) is a thriller where things just seem to slide downhill, and while not a complete disaster, this is a movie that features very little intelligent behavior. Some spoilers follow.

The film opens with Sophie, a little girl being traumatized by something unknown, and then jumps forward to the present, where someplace in north Wales, a grown Sophie (Holly Weston) and four other college-age students are in the woods looking to do some camping. Also along are Sophie's friend Jane (Sadie Pickering), Jane's boyfriend Sam (Sacha Dhawn), Jane's brother Dean (Jonathan Readwin), and John (Sol Heras).

Sophie is interested getting some evidence about a mysterious beast that has been attacking farm animals. After making camp, the group is settling in for the night, when Sophie sees something in the woods, and goes off with John to investigate. They eventually find St. Joseph's, a huge estate in the middle of the woods. They enter the abandoned facility, and find signs of a slaughtered lamb. Something comes out of the dark, and Sophie knocks herself unconscious running away. She wakes up locked in a room, being held prisoner by a strange dwarfish man named Gavin (Stephen Walters).

Sophie makes several attempts to escape, and although she does some intelligent things, she somehow manages to mess up. Sophie's friends, also stumble across St. Josephs, which is actually an abandoned church. John encounters a priest named Father Thomas (Colin Tierney), and they also arrive at the church, for the dramatic climax.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cannibalism: A Welsh Problem June 1, 2012
By Brian
Format:DVD
In this most nonsensical scare story, a group of Cockney teens goes monster-hunting in the wilds of North Wales (how this comes about is left largely unexplained). But instead of finding monsters, which we're led to believe are somehow a wolfen manifestation of one of the teen's repressed childhood memories, our ever-bickering and beer-drinking fivesome stumbles onto an abandoned boys' school populated by two feral brothers-- one a drooling cannibal, the other just suffering from incredibly bad hygiene (although he's no slouch in the drool department, either). There is a priest who appears out of nowhere to provide some exposition; a fair amount of gore as the teens are killed off one by one; gratuitous cat-and-mouse hijinks among the school's sepulchral halls as we try to figure out who's committing the killings; and a lengthy third-act denouement 'narrated' by the kinder, more articulate backwoodsman through which we are given the rather lame genesis of his bitey brother's condition. If I've missed anything, it's because I was distracted by my jaw hitting the floor continously at the multitude of tired, dead-end tropes and perfunctory twists thrown in during the film's final twenty minutes. The only worthwhile question that lingers after sitting through 'Splintered' is: where in the hell does the title come from? 1 1/2 stars for some spooky sets and photography.

3.0 out of 5 stars HE COMES AT NIGHT March 24, 2012
Format:DVD
The movie opens with a scene of a young girl alone in her bedroom. The moonlight shines bright through the window. The house is old and is decorated with religious pictures and symbols. There is a creature at the door. It has the low growl of a lion. The girl is afraid and hides under the bed as the animal comes into the room. Its claws lunge at her under the bed, then finally grab her and drag her out. She screams and awakes. It was all a dream. I liked the opening scene and the subsequent credit roll.

We find out the girl's name is Sophie (Holly Weston). She is a young adult and still has bad dreams. There has been some killings by some unknown animal. Sophie and 4 others decide they want to capture the animal...on film. She is obsessed with werewolves and appears to be a frigid virgin. Sam (Sacha Dhawan) is the far too frank skeptic who supplies us with internal conflict within the group. Jane (Sadie Pickering) is his girlfriend and considers herself to be a soul mate of the aloof moody Sophie. John (Sol Heras) is Sophie's boyfriend (I feel your pain). Dean (Jonathan Readwin) is the fifth wheel, brother to Jane, has a digital movie camera.

Eventually, following a trail, Sophie finds an abandoned building that looks like a large mental hospital, where beauty winds up as prisoner of the beast's psycho keeper, a wild eyed man who talks to himself (Stephen Walters). Sophia (named for the goddess of wisdom) is resourceful and clever.

The movie starts out like it is going to be a great offbeat werewolf film and then digresses into a psycho slasher movie. There are some twists at the end that were slightly developed, but you don't realize it at the time. Good job by Holly Weston. Decent story line but couldn't properly be told in 90 minutes.

F-bomb, brief nudity (Holly Weston), no sex.
