Storyline

From the makers of The Last Exorcism comes a boldly original vision of horror. What if the most chilling novel of all time was actually based on a true account of a horrific experiment gone awry? When he is suspended from his university job for his outlandish ideas, Professor John Venkenheim leads a documentary film crew to the rim of the Arctic Circle in a desperate effort to vindicate his academic reputation. His theory: Mary Shelley's ghastly story, "Frankenstein," is, in fact, a work of non-fiction disguised as fantasy. In the vast, frozen wilderness, Venkenheim and his team search for the legendary monster, a creature mired in mystery and drenched in blood. What they find is an unspeakable truth more terrifying than any fiction...a nightmare from which there is no waking. Written by Image Entertainment

Better then they want to make us believe.
16 April 2015 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

This movie is definitely not as bad as some people want to make us believe. Even though I'm not a huge fan of camcorder movies this one is certainly not the worst I ever saw. The only problem I have is that they call it a horror movie while it isn't at all. But other then that I enjoyed The Frankenstein Theory. I thought the actors were okay and the story was not bad at all. There are some nice nature shots as well so all in all this movie deserves much better then its low ratings. Too bad they didn't show the Frankenstein monster more or even better made him a bit scarier. But I guess with a low budget this is the best we can expect. Certainly worth a watch to me.
