  • In this indie film sure to make audiences shriek, the horror is just beginning when a young couple is carjacked by an escaped inmate and his lover. But the criminal (Shea Whigham, WRISTCUTTERS: A LOVE STORY) isn't the most dangerous thing on the trip; a mysterious, parasitic creature stalks the two couples, and a small convenience store doesn't prove to be much of a haven from the menace. Toby Wilkins, who won awards for his short film "Staring at the Sun," makes his feature directorial debut with SPLINTER.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[A] thriller along the lines of THE THING or ALIEN. The scares are equal parts psychological jolts and gore."
    USA Today

    "[T]he director, Toby Wilkins, honors the conventions of the genre with skill and enough wit to keep the scares sharp."
    New York Times

    "F/X whiz Toby Wilkins' SPLINTER is spare, effective and genuinely frightening....The mechanics of SPLINTER are remarkably sound..."

    "[With] brisk pacing, believable leads, and just the right ratio of frights to gore....Along the way the film displays nifty effects..."
