Wouldn’t you rather see an original horror flick this Halloween rather than giving money to Saw friggin’ V?

Maybe you should check out Splinter. The film has already started to get rave reviews, and will have its US premiere at this year’s Scream Fest in LA. Better than that, it’s getting a limited theatrical release on October 31st.

The film is directed by FX wizard Toby Wilkins and is about a young couple who’s kidnapped by a pair of convicts and forced into a gas station, where things soon take a turn for the worst. Can you say “parasites with a taste for human flesh”? I know you can.

Check out their first video podcast below for some behind the scenes info and footage from the film. Check out their official website for more. Hopefully we’ve got something that will scare the shit out of us this season.
