“It should become the official home-study of alternative for kids too lazy to read the book. A literal and literate addition to the lengthy annals of monster lore.” - Variety
What happens when man violates the laws of God and science? For Captain Walton (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Donald Sutherland, The Hunger Games) and the crew of a weather-beaten ship stranded in the icy sea, the answer follows their rescue of a scientist close to death, frozen in fear, and insane with dire warnings. Viktor Frankenstein (Alec Newman, Frank Herbert’s Dune) has a story to tell—a story as chillingly real as the tortured howls emanating from the Arctic fog and as timeless as the need to be loved.
This mini series is one of my favorite versions of Frankenstein. I love the way Frankenstein is presented. He's still a monster, but one that you can't help but empathize with. You feel for him. You want the woman to love him, even though you know he's done terrible things because none of it is really his fault. Because it's a mini series, you also get the whole story, uncut and fully in depth. It's probably the closest rendition to the book you can find.
From watching the doctor began his tale on the boat to the possibility of the monster still being out there somewhere, this film will leave you on the edge of your seat. This version of Frankenstein is beautiful in it's horror and heart-wrenching at the same time. Any fans of the horror genre should have it in their collection.
