Dr Moreau-style mad science gets grafted onto chin-stroking social commentary in Cube director Vincenzo Natali’s Cronenbergian tale of a pair of geneticists (Adrien Brody, Sarah Polley) who engineer a new hybrid species from animal and human DNA.
As the unlikely surrogate parents shepherd their creation through an accelerated adolescence, a surprisingly nuanced, disturbing, taboo relationship drama emerges from the monster-movie template.
It doesn’t quite make the most of it, but the effects are slickly done for such a low budget.
