Something has been killing live stock in a remote part of North Wales and now it's started attacking humans. Sophie, a teenager with a troubled past, puts herself and her friends at the mercy of this wild beast, when her obsession of the unexplained leads them deep into the Welsh countryside. Looking for evidence within an abandoned building, Sophie witnesses a vicious attack on her friend and then finds herself incarcerated in a locked room. She cannot escape and her only hope is that her friends manage to find her before her captor makes them his latest victim.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"When you finally learn what it's all about, you might have preferred a community theater production of "Annie" instead. "Splintered" is lame to the max."
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"Not enough twists or shocks to make it interesting or scary."
‑ David Gritten, Daily Telegraph
"Reference points from the legend of the Beast of Bodmin, movie werewolf classics to tabloid tales of Catholic child abuse are ticked off in debut director Simoen Halligan's effective yarn."
‑ , Sky Movies
"An enthusiastic, if dog-eared mongrel of a movie."
‑ Matt Glasby, Total Film
"Poor pacing and predictability -- not to mention amateurish performances -- rob even the kills of genuine impact."
‑ Sloan Freer, Radio Times
"You just can't wait for them to get killed off quickly enough."
‑ Phelim O'Neill, Guardian
"Halligan handles the low-budget horror with adroitly but the by-the-numbers plotting takes the edge off the scares."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
