First screened in October 2015
Director: Toby Wilkins. Cast: Shea Whigham, Jill Wagner, Paulo Costanzo, Rachel Kerbs, Charles Baker, Laurel Whitsett. Screenplay: Ian Shorr and Kai Barry.

Twitter Capsule: Fun horror thriller nimbly balanced among Guignol, comedy, and schlock. Savvy marshaling of modest means. Some seams show.

VOR:   Even the tricks Splinter executes best are not technically new. But it feels fresh and spontaneous while it plays and throws interesting side-eye at two brands of macho.
