I - Frankenstein
Not your ordinary Frankenstein
If you're planning to go see this and think you're about to see a classic as was presented in Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein" well then you're in for a whole new take on an old classic horror! Personally for me I was enthralled, captivated and love the new story path it took.
It pushed past the 19th century story line and brings us into the present. To be honest I wasn't sure what to expect. I hadn't seen many reviews and had only seen bits and pieces of the trailer. Those trailers were enough to intrigue & entice me to see it. And for me, I was surprised and riveted in how it pulled me into an action packed & unique story line to its end. It truly is a story of Good vs. Evil in a new way. One I personally liked because I have always been, since I can remember, a Fantasy, Classic Horror and ones with unusual spiritual undertones movie lover. I will try not to give to much away in this review as I really want you, the reader, to Go see it yourself to bring from it your take and then come back and share here!
The movie beings with Frankenstein's monster monologue what we all pretty much know... Dr. Frankenstein used science, nature and a corpse to create and reanimate a dead human being. But in creating such a creature it brought torment and conflict in the Dr. that the Dr. tried to destroy the monster. Unsuccessful attempt to kill the Monster, the monster takes revenge on the Dr. new bride for not keeping a promise to the Monster (Adam he's later named) and the Dr. sets out in pursuit to kill Adam. On the onset of the Dr's death the Monster, Adam, returns back with the dead Dr. to the Dr.'s home and buries him in the Frankenstein's family cemetery. It's there the real story begins.... and with that I leave you to go see the movie yourself.
I have included in this post an official trailer of the movie to give you more of an idea of the true story line.
Happy Movie Going!
