When "Subject Two" first arrives at Doc's cabin, there is just a bit of snow on his shoulders. When he starts to talk to the doctor in the cabin, there is a lot of snow on his right shoulder. After the second time the camera switches back to the doctor, the snow is completely gone. See more »
Modern "Frankenstein" story in an isolated cabin in the mountains.
This was a great movie. Modern Frankenstein story with a twist. The story centers around Dr. Vic and his new assistant (an unhappy medical student named Adam). Separated from the world, hours from any town, Dr. Vic's experiments take a twisted turn. It was filmed entirely around Aspen, CO. The actors literally had to snowmobile hours on end to get to the film site. I really loved this movie. The horror aspect was less apparent, but I didn't mind at all. It speaks a great deal towards the nature of man, and towards our arrogance. The story was great and the acting was awesome!! The special effects were believable and not at all cheesy. Dean Stapleton is incredible. I am curious as to why he has not had other roles. Christian Oliver plays an amazing Adam. The emotion he brings to the part makes the movie. I recommend this to everyone!!!!!
