Splintered movie scene

Things look bleak for Holly Weston in Spintered.

A group of teenagers exploring a creepy abandoned building discover a terrifying creature on a blood-thirsty rampage in the 2010 British horror-thriller movie Splintered.

The film peeks in on a trouble teen named Sophie (Holly Weston, TV’s Hollyoakes) as she drags her friends deep into a forest in search of a local legend – a half-animal/half-man creature that uses its cunning ability and brutal strength to kill for pleasure. But when the beast leads Sophie and her friend, John (Sol Heras), to an abandoned orphanage, the hunters become the hunted.

Splintered has picked up a bit of a following since 2010, winning six awards at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival, including Best Picture, Best Special Effects and Best Make-Up.

Directed and co-written first-time feature filmmaker Simeon Halligan, the unrated Splintered, which is premiering in the U.S. on DVD, also stars Stephen Martin Walters (TV’s Skins), Sacha Dhawan (TV’s Outsourced) and Jonathan Readwin (Dread).

Bonus materials on the discs include a making-of featurette and deleted scenes.
