Storyline

The time is the early 21st century and a genetics lab has been destroyed in a fire seriously injuring a scientist and possibly killing his daughter. As two investigators begin to unravel the story of the lab and its experiments, they discover that the scientist may have started the fire himself with the intention of killing his own daughter. The journals of the scientist and of the lab's founder, Dr. Patricia Morella, tell the tale of genetics experiments going badly awry and of the deceit that was used to hide them even from some of those that were involved. Dr. Morella's legacy is a clone whose only goal in life is its own survival and reproduction...no matter what the cost! Written by CD

Intriguing, but slow moving, and some areas of confusion
20 November 1999 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio) – See all my reviews



This movie, based on Edgar Allen Poe's work, has some interesting points to it. It's an interesting play on the apocryphal theme of Lillith. It's a laudable attempt at putting a woman in the Frankenstein monster's role.

Too bad it was so slow moving. The ill-lighting and constant rain suggests that the movie was an attempt at gothic moodiness, but setting it in an antiseptic futuristic environment undermines the emotional impact. This is a true shame, as Poe's original work had mood & punch.

Nicholas Guest was disappointing in this movie, while the supporting actor, Robert Lipton did a much more convincing job. But the evolution of the story to a moralistic commentary on the current hot topic of cloning is a little heavy-handed and tiresome. Not easy stuff to work with.

Some neat ideas, but generally, a failed attempt at bringing a strong Victorian work into the modern age.
