    Splice is the darkest fairy tale of this century.

    In fact, it's easy to fall under the film's spell.

    The movie has a rhythm that few horror flicks can conjure, and that remains central to the underlying terror. Playing through like a great record, Splice examines the innocence of the damned, the dangers of playing God and why man may be more terrifying than any creations or experiments. Sounds like fodder for a Nine Inch Nails album…

    It makes complete sense that Adrien Brody cops to spinning ambient, computerized music a la Trent Reznor while on set for the film.

    He laughs, "My character, Clive, reminded me of a more intelligent version of the hipster, goth kids I grew up with. Clive made it and became an incredibly successful genius whiz kid. He's now on top of the world, but he has that edge."

    The experiment that Clive and his brilliant partner Elsa [Sarah Polley] create, in secret, Dren—the entrancingly fantastic Delphine Chaneac—evolves into something that just can't be control. She's a hybrid of everything human and animal, and you'll just have to experience the results for yourself…

    Delphine thought of the perfect playlist for her creature though: "Between The Cure and classical music!"

    So from Nine Inch Nails and The Cure to classical composers, the stars of Splice possessed an intriguing musical perspective of their cinematic "creation." In this exclusive video interview, Adrien Brody and Delphine Chaneac sat down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino to discuss the fairytale side of Splice, what music would and wouldn't be on Dren's playlist, their favorite artists and so much more.
