First look at Bernard Rose's Frankenstein starring Xavier Samuel

Frankenstein Bernard Rose

CANDYMAN director Bernard Rose is trying his hand at one of horror’s most iconic monsters with FRANKENSTEIN, and today we have our first look at his re-imagined take on Mary Shelley’s classic novel. FRANKENSTEIN will have its world premiere this very weekend at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. While the setup is certainly familiar, there's some serious talent involved and I'm really looking forward to Rose's modern-day take on the story.

Rose directed from his original script based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel and it goes like this:

FRANKENSTEIN is set in present day Los Angeles and told entirely from the perspective of the Monster. After he is artificially created, then left for dead by a husband-and-wife team of eccentric scientists, Adam is confronted with nothing but aggression and violence from the world around him. This perfect creation-turned disfigured monster must come to grips with the horrific nature of humanity.

Xavier Samuel stars as the Monster, Carrie-Anne Moss as Elizabeth Frankenstein, Danny Huston as Victor Frankenstein, and Tony Todd as Eddie, reuniting with his CANDYMAN director Rose. Special Effects Make-up was designed by six-time Emmy nominee Randy Westgate.
