Plot: From the makers of The Last Exorcism comes a boldly original vision of horror. What if the most chilling novel of all time was actually based on a true account of a horrific experiment gone awry? When he is suspended from his university job for his outlandish ideas, Professor John Venkenheim leads a documentary film crew to the rim of the Arctic Circle in a desperate effort to vindicate his academic reputation. His theory: Mary Shelley's ghastly story, "Frankenstein," is, in fact, a work of non-fiction disguised as fantasy. In the vast, frozen wilderness, Venkenheim and his team search for the legendary monster, a creature mired in mystery and drenched in blood. What they find is an unspeakable truth more terrifying than any fiction...a nightmare from which there is no waking. Runtime: 87 mins Release Date: 28 Feb 2013
This was a great movie. It really draws you in The characters are real. The story is interesting Filming is fun to watch. Good music At first it seems hard to believe but then it really captures you. It features several characters that are fun to watch. The main character is a realistic scientists who is searching to save his career. He struggles between his career and his family life. The other characters are also believable. They come along at first because of an assignment and realize they've been sucked into a weekend of horror. Interesting is standing is that interesting. This movie <more>
is worth owning it's a great movie to see on a weekend. It is a great movie to watch on TV, DVD cable or iTunes. It would be more dramatic in a theater.
I thought the movie was great! It was more suspenseful than your average horror but that's what made it great, thought provoking edge of your seat ride. The story had a little bit of everything... your classic horror, new age raw "documentary style" which I enjoy , enough action to keep you into it, and little jokes, I found amusing throughout. Also, I thought it was shot really well. Plus I thought the acting was up to par and they kept me believing they were trapped in an isolated part of the Arctic. I also liked the fact you really never saw the "monster" except for <more>
that split second right at the end. A must see for Frankenstein and found footage film fans!
Much Better Than Expected! (by malagutigrrl-103-578446)
I found out about this movie in Fangoria Magazine and even though "The Video Eye of Dr. Cyclops" only gave this movie 1 1/2 "eyeballs" out of 5, I saw it on Netflix and decided to give it a try because it was a brand new take on the Frankenstein story. I figured it would be too "Blair Witch" for me but jumped in anyway and AM SO GLAD I DID. While it does have that "lets make a documentary" essence that made "Blair Witch" a blockbuster spurning a whole lot of similar movies that sucked and which now the "Paranormal Activity" movies <more>
have brought back to life, I was instantly captured from the first sentence. I was particularly taken by the intelligence of this film. The character of Dr. Jonathan Venkenhein which is very reminiscent of how "Frankenstein" sounds starts right out by telling the camera that it was HIS family that created the monster and that he believes it is still alive and wants to go on an expedition to find it. This film is not for you if you're looking for lots of gore, but in this case I think less is more. Jonathan has researched his family archives and put together theories his entire life that convinced me in the first 5 minutes of the film that I was all in and would have gone with him in a second. While the info he gives in the beginning is rather abundant and more importantly believable, he continues to divulge more information as the expedition goes on keeping it interesting. I highly recommend it!
For me, this movie was surprising. I'm not usually a horror person and I guess I expected more of a bloody monster movie without a ton of substance. Instead, The Frankenstein Theory was funny, the cinematography was beautiful and the tension had a slow, but intense build I don't want to give anything away . I really enjoyed it. Totally recommend -- for all sorts of audiences -- even wimps like me. It's not your average fake doc either; not as shaky and hand held. I especially appreciated the comic relief because it defused the scares for me a little. I feel like this could be one <more>
The premise of this movie is that Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is a work of non-fiction. A young Professor is going to stake his reputation, which is already on shaky ground, to prove that the Monster is still alive somewhere in the Northern territories. It's an interesting premise thanks to a well-crafted script.Having said that, if you are looking for a slasher film with lots of blood and gore, save your money. However, if you like "intelligent" films that are more suspense and character driven, this movie is for you. I call it an adult horror film.I loved the ensemble <more>
acting, the humor, and the gorgeous Arctic-like scenery. The first-rate sound design and music helped make the movie scary enough to get the adrenalin going but not too scary where I had to hide my eyes well, maybe just once! . I, for one, look forward to many more films from this talented first-time director.
This is a solid movie and one of the best of its genre. It's definitely in the vein of Blair Witch but has a clever back story and a unique setting. The frozen wilderness adds an extra chill. The characters are totally believable great acting and it's truly suspenseful. I'm a fan of horror movies that don't show too much and this hit all the right notes for me. For a filmmaker it's an excruciatingly hard line to walk, I'm sure. It's not a slasher film so you can't rely on bits of gore and violence to propel you through. Instead it has to be smart and the <more>
pacing just right. And there has be be enough comic relief so that you're not totally stressed while watching it. It succeeds. Highly recommended.
I liked this movie. The acting wasn't horrible, the theory was completely off, the jokes were pretty darn funny, and it was entertaining. It sort of reminded me of JAWS for a second there half way through the movie, but it was pretty entertaining 'found footage' film. Though I wouldn't classify it as a 'found footage' since there are parts of the movie that they all can be seen with one camera and the camera is being moved by someone. The Frankenstein was pretty awesome, and I would never want to meet that guy. Definitely a flick worth watching if you have nothing else <more>
to do. They put some good money into this movie and I would definitely put it up there on a top 10 B Horror Film List somewhere.
The Frankenstein Theory takes a very unique and original look at the Mary Shelley story of Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus under the pretext that a heir to the "Frankenstein" family has found notes and family memorabilia to suggest that the creature is indeed still alive in the Arctic north. The film is shot from a documentary perspective as it follows a group of five film makers and Jonathan Venkenhein, the great, great, grandson of Johan Venkenhein which was the actual creator of the Frankenstein creature on their journey to discover the truth. Timothy V Murphy "The <more>
Lone Ranger", "Appaloosa" gives a perfect performance as the guide Karl, as he tries to distill in the crew the dangers of heading out across the Arctic with nothing but snowmobiles and a childlike misunderstanding of what exactly they are getting themselves into. Kris Lemche nails the furiously curious role of Jonathan Venkenhein, who is a young professor who has been so consumed by his families history and the possibilities, that he has been suspended from the University in which he teaches. Directed by Andrew Weiner who co-wrote the story with Vlady Pildysh, the film is able to overcome the documentary tiredness that some films fall into and stand alone with good acting and great cinematic shots. The creature, who is played by a very well seen but unknown actor and stunt man named Roger W. Morrisey "The Lords of Salem". "Hellborn" is perfectly placed and never over used. This is more of an imaginatively tense and scary fall through an unlit cave than it is a spotlight heavy horror movie where the creature is highlighted in detail and posed for each high definition shot. Come take a look at the Adam of Venkenhein's labors, and see for yourself, just how wretched are the ways of men, both past, and present...
