Although its originally announced premiere month of July has come and gone, we’ve received confirmation that Splintered, the debut feature from production company Not A Number and director Simeon Halligan, will indeed be hitting UK cinemas in just a few short weeks – September 3rd to be exact.
Prowling in the darkest corner of a desolate, abandoned building on the edge of a wilderness is a dangerous animal, one that lives by the rules of the wild, where survival is its only concern. This creature of the night uses cunning and instinct to hunt and kill for pleasure. It has no qualms about its actions; it lives by its carnal desires alone. Sophie (Holly Weston), a teenager with a troubled past, puts herself and her friends at the mercy of this beast when her curious obsession with the unexplained leads them deep into the Welsh countryside. When her friend is violently attacked, Sophie soon discovers what it’s like to become the object of this animal’s obsessive desire. She is locked in an isolated empty room, where no one can hear her screams.
In the night, in the dark, something is trying to get in, and Sophie is terrified. Daylight brings Gavin (Stephen Martin Walters). He keeps the animal at bay as best he can. A protector of sorts, but a protector who also keeps her imprisoned. Sophie’s attempts at escape repeatedly end in failure, but she clings to the hope that her friends will rescue her. Unfortunately their desperate search for Sophie will inevitably end in death and despair.
Sophie must confront the mysteries that are locked in her past and discover the truth about her captor if she is to survive the beast’s unstoppable and obsessive onslaught.
