This is a modern day remake of Frankenstein and it is a great movie. The 1931 version is better. But still this is a great movie. Doctor Franken is a doctor who whats people to live forever. So he creates a man out of dead body parts. The brings it to life. This movie has a great story line. It also has great acting. It also has great special effects. Robert Vaughn is a great actor. Robert Perault was a great actor. Frankenstein (1994) is a better movie. But still this is a great movie. It is very scary. It one of the best horror movies of all time. If you get a chance to see this movie do so. It is great 10 out 10. This is a must see.
