Well I bought this film the other day and watched it a second time....
I am not one to say this often, but honestly, Splinter does not hold up as well on a second viewing. Once the first watch of the film is gone, it does not have as much to like the second time around-- the by-the-numbers approach sticks out like a sore thumb and does not pull you in as much, suspense wise, after you see it once. There is also not much in the way of true scares, as well.
I still like the film, and find it about average, but this is one of the first times in a long time that I have drastically rerated after seeing a film again after so soon.
First viewing: 8.0/ 10 (In 0.5 increments)
Second viewing: 5.0 / 10 (In 0.5 increments)
