A trippy, often mesmerizing journey into the bizarre...
7 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Frankenstein's Bloody Nightmare" takes some of its plot line, story and inspiration from an obvious source, and then quickly surrounds us in an abstract world of sight and sound, held together in loose narrative fashion by the obsessions of the young Victor Karlstein.

The aesthetic of the film in nearly every respect is extremely abstract, but this does not really detract from the story. Mostly the style blends effectively with script and characters to create a mesmerizing and immersing atmosphere. To his credit, there is little of the film that doesn't feel like a very deliberate part of the vision of its creator: director/writer John R. Hand.

The characters and story (though probably intentionally so) are the weakest. Normally I'd say this is a big drawback, but somehow in this film, the very style and sense of it kind of becomes the real character. It almost feels like you're having a bizarre, trippy dream through someone else's eyes.

With a dated and yet somehow timeless feel, the film's greatest strengths and weaknesses derive equally from its uncompromisingly abstract reality. It will likely have a very polarizing effect on viewers, but that is more a plus than a minus in my book.

"Frankensteins Bloody Nightmare" is a painstakingly crafted trip into the bizarre. Often defiant of classification, it evokes reflections reminiscent of Cronenberg, Tsukamoto and Godard.

A strong, strange and unique debut feature from writer/director John R. Hand. It will be interesting to see what he comes up with next.
