Did You Know?


The concept for this telefilm was originally developed by Dean R. Koontz and collaborator Kevin Anderson, and intended as a television series. When USA Networks joined the project as production company and distributor, Koontz signed on as screenwriter and executive producer. Martin Scorsese also signed on as executive producer, and a cast (most of whom were in the final product) was assembled. Following creative disputes between USA and Koontz, both Koontz and Scorsese left the project (Scorsese was later convinced to return). Koontz and Anderson later developed the concept into a series of novels (as "Dean Koontz' Frankenstein"), but Koontz allowed USA to use the names of his characters as long as they altered the plot and removed his name from all consideration.

Detective Carson O'Conner: Go on, move into the light.
Deucalion: You're detective O'Connor?
Detective Carson O'Conner: How'd you get in here?
Deucalion: I go where I want. In two hundred years, I learned a lot about locks. The man who lived here was in despair. I recognize his pain.
Detective Carson O'Conner: So you're telling me you knew Bobby Alwine?
Deucalion: He's like me. Not made of god.
Detective Carson O'Conner: Yeah right.
Deucalion: He wanted to kill himself, but couldn't take his own life. We're not designed to.
Detective Carson O'Conner: Are you telling me you helped him?
Deucalion: I can help you. I recognize his killer's pain as well.

5 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is for the over 8 but under 25 crowd. It works for sleepovers and slumber parties. The acting for this SciFi thriller/horror is okay, but not memorable. It has a poor storyline and is grossly predictable from the start. It is also supposed to be a horror flick, but I was not at all scared. The lighting is too dark for most of the movie and turns me off. The plot is disjointed. There is too much scene jumping. It is hard to get into the plot with all the scene jumping. The movie is slow. It is work to follow the progress of the movie and understand the significance of the scenery and progression within the flick. OK for the die hard SciFi fan to watch once. Otherwise, almost a waste of time to see.
