I, Frankenstein [Trailer]
Directed by Stuart Beattie (Tomorrow When The War Began) and shot in Melbourne I, FRANKENSTEIN is a contemporary fantasy thriller in which the original monster of Victor Frankenstein stands between the human race and an uprising of supernatural creatures determined to overthrow the world. Adapted from the graphic novel of the same name by Kevin Grevioux, it picks up from the moment that the classic Mary Shelley novel leaves off: with the death of Victor Frankenstein and the abandonment of his creature to meet its end in the Arctic wilderness. But the creature doesn’t die – nor does it age the way humans do. And so Frankenstein’s creature makes its way back to civilisation – to a world that is dominated by an epic power struggle between two clans – the Demons and the Gargoyles.
Told over two centuries to the present day – a hyper-modern metropolis with a twisted Gothic underbelly – the war between the clans rages, with the Demons attempting to capture the immortal, bioengineered creature who is a defender of humanity.
I, FRANKENSTEIN will be in cinemas January 2014.
