Frankenstein titles are proliferating. Among the completed titles are I, Frankenstein, now being adapted for 3-D release, as well as Frankenstein’s Army and Army of Frankensteins, two different films. The first is Richard Raaphorst’s much anticipated WWII horror that has Dr. Frankenstein churning out super-soldier monsters for the Nazi cause. The latter entry is a time travel tale with a host of parallel universe Frankenstein Monsters, and one Abraham Lincoln.
The Frankenstein Theory deals with a scientific expedition traveling to the edge of the Arctic Circle to investigate the intriguing premise that Mary Shelley’s famous fiction was actually inspired by the true facts of “a horrific experiment gone awry”.
The film is of the “found footage” genre, the trailer is familiarly replete with actors’ asides to the camera, greenish night vision scenes and sudden shocks followed by a fumbled camera. The Monster of the tale, however, is clearly depicted on the poster.
