From the makers of The Last Exorcism comes a boldly original vision of horror. What if the most chilling novel of all time was actually based on a true account of a horrific experiment gone awry? When he is suspended from his university job for his outlandish ideas, Professor John Venkenheim leads a documentary film crew to the rim of the Arctic Circle in a desperate effort to vindicate his academic reputation. His theory: Mary Shelley’s ghastly story, “Frankenstein,” is, in fact, a work of non-fiction disguised as fantasy. In the vast, frozen wilderness, Venkenheim and his team search for the legendary monster, a creature mired in mystery and drenched in blood. What they find is an unspeakable truth more terrifying than any fiction…a nightmare from which there is no waking.
User Reviews: The Frankenstein Theory is another horror film made in the style of a faux documentary. Basically, a film crew follows a Professor around while he tries to redeem himself after being fired from his job. I know I say this a lot, but this movie started out extremely slow. Probably one of the slowest found footage horrors I’ve ever seen all the way through. I can’t even really critique what happened in the first hour because I’m pretty sure my brain shut off. It starts to finally pick up when they’re out camping in the snow and even then, it’s really the last 15 minutes or so that are interesting. The ending was a little creepy, but I don’t know if it’s worth watching an hour of film that’s boring, just to get to a few minutes of entertainment. I would definitely wait till this movie is available on Redbox or streaming through Netflix. But I don’t suggest renting it at full price on VOD or you will be majorly disappointed.
