These Hybrid Moments
Elsa (Sarah Polley) and Clive (Adrien Brody) are a brilliant couple, biochemists who have figured out how to successfully combine different forms of animal DNA into a single creature. Their breakthroughs have many implications for the fields of science and health, but they have yet to crack the final frontier: an animal-human hybrid. When their superiors threaten to shut down their engineering project and put a stop to any further innovations, Elsa and Ed decide to take matters into their own hands.
It's got a few things going for it: An interesting premise, that, while vaguely similar, doesn't look nearly as moronic as Species. A spectacular cast -- Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley are the leads. That's a pretty impressive duo. I dig the indie vibe it gives off, and if anyone's seen Cube, you know Natali can do weird damn well. I love the general feel of it, although the trailer may be playing up the suspense! and shock! parts of it -- I'm hoping it'll be a little more intelligent than the average film of its ilk, and not just blood and jump scares.
It sounds like SyFy-level crap. It looks like it could be amazing. Check the first full trailer:
