Splinter

Directed by Toby Wilkins

A group of people are trapped in a gas station by a spikey parasite monster in this grisly creature feature. A young couple retreats to the wilderness for a romantic camping weekend, but their idyll is shattered when they are carjacked by an escaped convict and his girlfriend on the run from the police. As the foursome travel the back roads together, each plotting their next move, they find themselves in deeper trouble than any of them could have imagined when a blood-crazed creature that absorbs the corpses of its victims gets the two couples in its sights.

A group of people are trapped in a gas station by a spiky parasitic monster.

This was a surprisingly good horror film. I enjoyed the cast, and the depth of characters. The only downside was that they used jump cuts and shaky camera movements to perhaps try and hide what they thought was a monster that wasn't scary enough looking, or didn't move well. I wanted to see more of the creatures, but otherwise it was a great watch.

A perfectly fine little movie that does a lot with what it has. Just a shame about the shaky-cam.

People have been nagging me to watch this for months but it sounded stupid and derivative. WRONG. This is a great, fresh take on the monster parasite trope. Intelligent, well-acted
