Science, please do not actually make this.

I’ve been waiting around for a solid science fiction, cautionary tale for some time now. It’s not a new story – it was born with “Frankenstein” after all – but with the speed of technological change, it seems like we need a new story every few years. Lately, we’ve been lacking. Luckily, Guillermo del Toro is fixing that problem.

Directed by Vincenzo Natali (Cube) and starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley, Splice is the story of two rogue scientists who decide to take genetic splicing to the next level. This, as it turns out, is a bad idea. That bad idea, that Frankensteinian monster comes in the form of a winged-human-hybrid that grows from a disgusting-looking infant into what looks like a hairless goat lizard. We’ve all seen one of those, right?

Fortunately for those that haven’t, Bloody Disgusting has a first look at the creature in some hi-res pics. Here’s a taste, but you’ll have to click on over to them to check out the rest:

Seriously. Chupacabra, right?

Hungry.

We wish we could show you more proof of the vomit-inducing awesomeness, but the only known trailer hasn’t hit public markets yet. It was shown at an American Film Market buyers meeting a few months ago and features a decent amount of nudity (so that might be changed, sadly, for us American prudes).

As soon as we get a trailer, you’ll have it in your eyeballs.

What do you think? Brody? Polley? del Toro? Natali? Creepy dragon-goat-person? Did they build the chupacabra??
