Splinter

It Will Get Under Your Skin

From /x/ a fine sir of the internets offers "Horror Fix" a livestream channel on which Thursday nights we are treated to three horror movies, if you are present for all three you get to cast a vote on which film is the winner of the night. For future events, see Horror Fix/Fest

Last night I caught Splinter, a wicked, disgusting little parasite that turns your body into a splintery, breaky mess. Couple A, a nerdtastic guy and his girlfriend, who has more balls than he does are out to take a camping trip. Couple B, some fugitives are trying to make their escape. As coincidence would have it, and because it was in the script, they meet up and end up trapped in a gas station/convenience store.

Once the action starts, it's a pretty gritty pace and for the first time in a long time, scared the piss out of me, and made me cringe in discomfort.
The finish, is not as impressive as it's beginning, and some of the effects are laughable.

Wanted to give it 4 stars, but not being able to carry awesome sauce all the way through caused a little butthurt. So, 3 1/2 stars from me. GO SEE IT.
