Twitter Capsule: Outright risibility saves an over-concerted effort to enter the midnight-movie canon of gynophobic sci-fi. Tawdry but fun.

VOR:   How many collaborators signed on hoping this was Alien? It's barely even Splice but has a fitful sense of humor about itself. The sheer terror of reproductive drives is bracing.
