Erin and Paul break down the DNA of two films that demonstrate the perils of creating genetically modified women. First: SPECIES, the gynephobic 1995 sci-fi/horror film starring Natasha Henstridge as an alien-human hybrid with a violent mating instinct; then, SPLICE, director Vincenzo Natali's Cronenbergian 2009 film starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley as a hotshot husband-and-wife team of genetic engineers who develop a perverse quasi-parental relationship with their latest creation. Sil or Dren: which will prevail?
Plus: quick takes on THE BLING RING, THIS IS THE END, and BEFORE MIDNIGHT.
