From the creators of The Last Exorcism comes 2013 monster flick The Frankenstein Theory. The plot follows Professor John Venkenheim who takes a documentary film crew to the Artic Circle in an attempt to restore his academic reputation after being suspended from his university teaching post for his ‘outlandish’ ideas. ‘What were these outlandish ideas?’, I hear you ask. Professor Venkenheim believes that Mary Shelley’s literary classic Frankenstein wasn’t so much a novel as it was a piece of non-fiction, and he is hell bent on proving his theory to be true.
The production looks slick, the story somehow seems freakishly feasible and the cast are well-suited and completely believeable. There’s even some fantastic night-time POV shots that are very reminiscent of The Blair Witch Project, a fil we completely adore at The Horror Hothouse. I am anticipating lots of jumps and screams with this one if the last scene in the trailer is anything to go by.
The trailer has been released on YouTube today, check it out below:
