Spliced By Aidan Codd.

The film spliced is about a man and woman who crossbreed animals for new types of animals using stem cell research to find out how to cure different deceases. They end up creating a spliced human with lots of different animals which ends up turning evil and starts killing, but in the end gets killed by its creators. So the film for me had a very rhetorical ending from the start when the couple were told not to splice a human at all, for human right reasons and they took no notice and did it anyway. Once they made the crossbreed  straight  away you could see it was going to end up killing one of them due to the animal features on it, for example the tail with the spike containing a paralyzing toxin . The funny ironic twist was that they treated it like their child and when it got older and out hand and killed a cat and started acting moody  the couple treated it like an animal again. It was strange that throughout the film they could see what it could do but they chose not to properly contain it within the facility. So really they weren’t taking into consideration its animal instincts and needs they were more concerned with their own goal to notice and that was what led to their down fall. This is a few reviews that back up what I am saying.

Two young rebellious scientists are told by their employers to halt groundbreaking work that has seen them produce new creatures with medical benefits by splicing together multiple organisms' DNA. They decide to secretly continue their work, but this time splicing in human DNA.
They both have the ambition to one day cure some of the world's most devastating diseases. To accomplish this, they experiment by splicing the DNA of several different animals in order to obtain a certain protein. But they soon grow tired of the demands of the corporation employing them — their progress is slow and they hope to make a real difference in the world. This 'difference' comes on a grand scale when they splice animal and human DNA together, seemingly just to see what will happen. They have no intention of letting the experiment grow to full term, but the experiment has intentions of its own. Hence, Dren is born (yes, that's 'Nerd' spelled backwards) – a conglomeration of different animal species with human features.
The film after Dren's birth plays out like a twisted, but cautionary fairy tale. We watch Elsa and Clive grow attached to their creation, and as an audience, Dren wins us over as well. Her existence fills a void in their lives. They do their best to keep their secret monster hidden, but of course, secrets do have a way of emerging.
