Frankenstein is an interesting re-telling of the classic story and features great performances from Xavier Samuel and Carrie-Anne Moss and although there are certainly flaws with the script and a limited budget, it’s well worthwhile watching though it seems like this would be tailored for SyFy.

This update on the classic Frankenstein is set in present day and told entirely from Adam the Monster’s (XAVIER SAMUEL) perspective. Adam is confronted with nothing by aggression and violence from the world around him after he is artificially created, then left for dead.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

No features were included.

 


VIDEO – 4.0/5

Alchemy releases Frankenstein presented with a 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. Although parts of the film have a washed-out effect, detail was at least still sharp and there didn’t appear to be major flaws like aliasing or artifacts.

 

AUDIO – 4.0/5

The disc includes a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 which is nicely strong providing for clear dialogue levels throughout and any action-centric elements give off decent enough depth utilizing the front and rear channels.

 



OVERALL – 3.0/5

Overall, Frankenstein is an interesting re-telling of the classic story and features great performances from Xavier Samuel and Carrie-Anne Moss and although there are certainly flaws with the script and a limited budget, it’s well worthwhile watching though it seems like this would be tailored for SyFy. The Blu-ray released through Alchemy offers good video and audio transfer but sadly no features were included.
