Mystifyingly, this modernday Frankenstein has a misleading gothic cover that makes it look like a cash- in on the appalling I, Frankenstein. Bad move. This is much better.
Written and directed by Candyman’s Bernard Rose, it’s a grim, bloody Modern Prometheus told from the monster’s point of view. A tad unsubtle and rambling at times ( how apt), it nevertheless boasts great performances ( including Carrie- Anne Moss as one of the monster’s creators) and effective horror moments.
Extras None. Dave Golder
