Released: October 31st Genre: Horror Rating: R Trailer: Click here The Film - A young couple has retreated to the wilderness for a romantic camping weekend-but the trip quickly spirals into a nightmare when they are car-jacked by an escaped convict and his girlfriend. Thrown together by chance, no one can imagine the terrifying horror that awaits the two couples at a remote and isolated gas station. The Verdict -When it comes to new Horrors releases, I'm always a bit skeptical and apprehensive to say the least. I've watched a lot of Horror and one thing I've noticed through the years is the deterioration in attention to detail of the genre, that has lost sight on what horror movies should be all about. It seems like every Horror film there after the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre has failed to instill any amount of fear into the hairs on my arms, instead leaving a rather dissatisfied taste in my mouth. Maybe i expect too much? So where does that leave Splinter? Well, surprisingly, i don't think it looks that bad for what it is; and that's not saying much! Splinter is your classic "Teenagers being hunted by Monster" type scenario, that has some ridiculous sub-plot thrown in to make it seems all like a plausible story. Splinter's introduction of a fresh new monster is at least something unexpected. Though a cast of terrified ample bodied youngsters, will more then likely cause an obvious distraction.I'm sure there's bound to be a few satisfying scares creep up in Splinter, but just like the all to common mishap of getting a splinter stuck in your finger, this film is going to be more irritating then anything else, of that i am sure.
