Good British 'horror' with a lot of twists and turns!
31 August 2010 | by jeremyblackmoreSee all my reviews

I use the term horror loosely as Splintered is actually more of a horror/ psychological thriller.

I found Splintered to be a very watchable film, in fact I'd probably go as far as to say "I loved it!" The beautiful heroine 'Sophie' (Holly Weston) was quite an intelligent lead, which was a relief as normally when watching a horror film I spend the whole time cursing at the screen in frustration as the main character is obviously doing something that's going to get them killed i.e. running up the stairs or dropping the shot gun whilst the killer's still chasing them. Sophie used her head and came up with some clever escape methods, she wasn't the hopeless/ annoying victim I've come to expect in a horror film.

I also liked how many twists there seemed to be, the moment I thought I had the whole plot figured out something unexpected happened that pulled me right into the think of the action. The best part happening about two thirds of the way through... so watch out for that!!

Production value seemed a lot higher than the amount I discovered they actually spent on the film and the special effects were pretty good too.

...all in all I'd say it's a pretty good film and defiantly worth a watch!
