By James Whittington, Saturday 9th January 2016
One of horror cinema’s oldest monsters becomes man’s newest miracle as Frankenstein is brought bang up to date and released on digital platforms from February 15th and on Blu-ray and DVD from February 22nd courtesy of Signature Entertainment.
Set in present day Los Angeles, Frankenstein tells its tale entirely from the point of view of The Monster (Xavier Samuel – The Twilight Saga, Fury) as he is artificially created by a husband and wife team of eccentric scientists (Danny Huston – X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 30 Days Of Night and Carrie-Anne Moss – Pompeii, The Matrix Trilogy) and then left for dead. Confronted with nothing but aggression and violence as he attempts to make is way in the world, The Monster must get to grips with the horrific nature of humanity as he searches for his own.
Also starring horror stalwart Tony Todd (Candyman, Hatchet II) and Maya Erskine (TV’s Man Seeking Woman), Frankenstein is a full-blooded and unflinching re-imagining of a timeless classic that terrifies as much as it casts a mirror over the nature of humanity and science.
Below is the rather cool trailer and look out for the movie in February.

We just keep on coming back to it, whether it’s to relish in the clichés, stereotypes and cheap thrills that gave birth to the whole ‘Rules of horror’ in the first place, or to explore and play with it in the post modern Slashers as defined by Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer and even the comedy horror franchise Scary Movie.
The reason the Slasher will always work (if done well!) is because it is a formula that taps into very basic core and primal fears. If you want to, you can get deeply psychological with the Slasher film and explore human fears of sex, death, gender, voyeurism - you name it. There are countless books that make ‘academic’ our simple love of watching teens getting hacked and slashed!
