Storyline

While camping in the woods, Polly Watt and her clumsy boyfriend Seth Belzer damage their tent. They decide to spend the night in a low-budget motel. Meanwhile the criminals, Lacey Belisle and Dennis Farell, have trouble with their runaway car while heading to Platt and they walk on the lonely road. When Polly passes by Lacey, she stops the car and the couple is rendered by Dennis. However, Polly hits something in the road and while replacing the tire, they are attacked by a weird splinter. The car overheats and they stop in a gas station, where they are trapped by zombies, victims of the splinter parasite. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Simple,cheap and great fun!
31 October 2008 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

What a nice surprise this movie turned out to be. Lately I have seen so many bad horror movies that I almost gave up on the genre itself but this one had good reviews on horror sites I visited so I gave it a go. I'm glad I did. The story is basic and simple:a monster, an isolated place and people doing their best to get out the situation alive.Been there, seen that,right? Sure, but Splinter is so well crafted and executed that this didn't bother me one bit.Characters are interesting and intelligent people that use their wits and brains to try to save their lives and don't just scream and panic. The movie is tense and gory and doesn't drag for a second. Special effects are mediocre but sufficient. If you are a horror fan this is the one to watch.Good job Mr. Wilkins!
