SPLINTER To Release Wider?Meh
Earlier we told you it looked like Splinter was only getting released into one theatre in NY but Toby Wilkins the director dropped us a line to let us know that it will be released into at least 4 major chains and added to the statement that something HUGE is in the works that will open the film up to an even larger audience. Intrigueing. Check back later when we have more details on this new development. As you all know I am an avid supporter of this film and think its well worth horror fans time to check it out. The plot goes like this;
A young couple retreats to the wilderness for a romantic camping weekend, but their idyll is shattered when they are car-jacked by an escaped convict and his girlfriend on the run from the police. As the foursome travel the back roads together, each plotting their next move, they find themselves in deeper trouble than any of them could have imagined -- a blood-crazed, parasitic creature that absorbs the corpses of its victims has laid claim to the woods, and the two couples are now in its sights.
Finding shelter at an abandoned gas station, they must use their wits and every weapon at their disposal to stave off the onslaught, not only from the insatiable creature, but also each other.... The feature film debut from award-winning British horror director Toby Wilkins, SPLINTER is an exhilarating ride of jolts and laughs, and a throw back to the classic creature features of the early 70s and 80s.
