Ol' Frankie's still got it! Not only are contemporary versions FRANKENSTEIN being prepped at both Sony and Summit, but the independent studio Alpha Studios is in production on a new take on the classic tale, dubbed FRANKENSTEIN: THE DAY OF THE BEAST. Check out the teaser trailer and stills below.
We know the story; we’ve seen the movies. You may think that it’s impossible to have a new approach to Frankenstein… Think again.
In a foggy winter morning, a raft brings a priest to an isolated island. He is getting paid to perform a wedding ritual under very mysterious conditions. The groom is Victor Frankenstein, and the young and beautiful bride is his cousin Elizabeth.
Seven armed and dangerous mercenary soldiers have been hired to protect her against something huge that hides in the woods, awaiting for that wedding night to be consummated. Victor is the only one who knows the truth about their enemy. His secret will be paid with the life of his private army, whose men will die one by one, as the creature gets closer to his target: the bride.
The movie is directed and produced by Ricardo Islas. It stars Adam Stephenson as Victor Frankenstein, Michelle Shields as Elizabeth and Tim Krueger as The Monster. Production is about three-quarters of the way complete, with a planned Halloween 2011 release. More information can be found on the film's official website.
