What it's about:

Superstar genetic engineers Clive and Elsa specialise in splicing together DNA from different animals to create incredible new hybrids. Now, they want to use human DNA in a hybrid that could revolutionise science and medicine. But, when the pharmaceutical company that funds their research forbids it, Clive and Elsa secretly conduct their own experiments. The result is Dren — an amazing, strangely beautiful creature who exhibits uncommon intelligence and an array of unexpected physical development. And while Dren, at first, exceeds their wildest dreams, she begins to grow and learn at an accelerated rate and threatens to become their worst nightmare.
 
What the critics thought:

"One of the year's most unusual, imaginative and daring films."
- Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail

"The movie is ridiculously over the top, inelegant and so defiantly ?crazy? that it works, reminding you how fun gore and creatures that go bump (and grind) in the night can be."
- Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine

"If it's discouraging - or at least disorienting - to see that Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley have signed on to a gnarly work of science-fiction horror, lighten up. They have good taste in schlock."
- Wesley Morris, Boston Globe

She's not human. Not entirely.
