Splice (2010)

This revolved around a rogue pair of gene splicing scientists who decide to take their experiments to the next level and add human DNA to the animal DNA they have been working with. Trouble ensues, obviously or there wouldn't have been a movie.
This was disappointing just because it could have been so much better. And it definitely has its moments, particularly in the beginning when you are dealing with their experiments, and the icky sort of body horror of creating new life from different sets of DNA. One moment is particularly amazing, but I don't want to spoil it here. The movie seemed confused, and it took too long to become the monster movie it really wanted to be. I would love to see David Cronenberg make a remake that would be really creepy.
