Very fun flick

The premise has been done many times before, but this film does it right. Apparently "Splinter" is an independent film, but it doesn't deserve to be lumped in the same category as the hundreds of "low budget" horror movies out there that are hardly more than a few friends with a camcorder and some ketchup packets. The production value here looks as good as many Hollywood movies, and the "monster" is done particularly well. The three main actors are great, and the characters are likable. This movie isn't going to change the genre or make anyone's Top 10 list, but it's definitely one of the more entertaining horror films I've seen in the last couple of years. It's a fun way to spend 80 minutes. My 8 out of 10 rating is a bit over-inflated simply because there have been so many terrible horror movies put out recently that it was refreshing to genuinely enjoy one from start to finish. A more realistic rating would be 6 or 6.5. Totally worth the price of admission, and I look forward to seeing more from this director in the future.

Simple,cheap and great fun!

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!

Good acting and good script with mediocre effects

This movie is stuck somewhere between a theatrical release-quality film and a direct to DVD movie, but much better than your ordinary Sci-Fi channel special. The acting is top quality. All characters, especially the one portrayed by Shea, are portrayed exceptionally well. The plot keeps you glued to your seat, and you can't wait to see what happens next or how they will think of a way out of their predicament. The only problems lie in the filming of the "monster" and to a lesser degree, the sound. I'm not a personal fan of the "flicker" style of filming so it may work for others. I prefer a fluid style of filming throughout the entire film. It's hard to keep track of the events occurring when things "flash" around rapidly. But if you can overlook it's extremely minor flaws, you're in for a treat with this one. The acting and the central theme of the plot are strong enough to overcome its shortcomings. My final ratings: Quality: 7 Entertainment level: 7 Overall: 7 Consensus: This might be Toby Wilkins' break as a writer/director and is a standout performance for Shea Whigham
