Considering this is our second Frankenstein-related article of the week, I think it’s safe to say that we’re in for a glut of Frankie films. The main reason for the invasion is because Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein entered the public domain a couple of years ago, however, keep in mind that versions of the Frankenstein monster are still under copyright, such as Universal Monster‘s version.
Now, get ready for The Frankenstein Theory. This film, from the creators of The Last Exorcism and directed by Andrew Weiner, had itspremiere on March 1, 2013, in the U.S., and on July 2, 2013, it will be made available in Canada as well.
Yes, the trailer looks awesome, even if it echoes what we saw in the Norwegian film, Trollhunter.
The Frankenstein Theory description:
The Frankenstein Theory asks, “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 afilm 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.
