Trivia

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.

Very Interesting
11 October 2004 | by (C-Town) – See all my reviews

Alright, so it's not as good as all the other Frankenstein films, but it is indeed a very good film and I must say, I am very glad that I watched it. It has a cool plot, and pretty bloody for a made for T.V. film.

Alright people, here is the thing. This is not a sequel to any of the Frankenstein films. It is not a film sequel to Mary Shelly's book, it simply takes place after the Frankenstein idea: A man who created his own human a long time ago.

Now, a long time later, in 2004, Victor Frankenstein still lives. With his brilliant mind, he managed to find the way to eternal life. His monster still lives as well, along with many more that Victor has created. There have been many murders happening in New Orleans, where Victor now lives. The monster now warns the police that it is one of Victor's monsters that is killing these people. The only problem, is that Victor's later monsters look like humans, so how are they suppose to catch this human monster before he kills again?

All the actors in this film did very well. Parker Posey from SCREAM 3 gives an excellent job in the lead roll. I hope this will help her do bigger things. We also have Michael Madsen, the brilliant actor from R. Dogs, who also does a great job in this movie.

If you get the opportunity to see this film, then do so. It is very good.
