Based on the Japanese best seller later turned into a popular video game, this sci-fi horror yarn follows biologist Toshiaki Nagashima, whose plan to clone his dead wife backfires — spawning a horrifying new species.

A surprisingly good film that while having VERY little in common with the Video Game (I can't speak for the novel) does very well as a standalone. The success of this is brought about by some very good acting, a VERY compelling soundtrack, and not to mention some really impressive special effects. The film at times is a drama of extreme passion, yet at times also plays like a japanese version of a 50's horror. A+
