Told from Igor's perspective, we see the troubled young assistant's dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man - and the legend - we know today.
Jessica Brown Findlay
Wallace, who is burned out from a string of failed relationships, forms an instant bond with Chantry, who lives with her longtime boyfriend. Together, they puzzle out what it means if your best friend is also the love of your life.
After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents.
After Iggy's long-time girlfriend is murdered and the whole town agrees he is the killer, he awakens one morning with horns and the townspeople soon confess their sins. Once knowing the sins of the people, he is facing the true killer of his beloved girlfriend.
The film is set in Washington state (witness the car license plates), but when Ig drives into town near the start of the movie, we can see a branch of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce on the right side of the street. See more »
Everyone in town always took me for an outsider. I didn't care. The only thing that mattered was her. She was my garden of Eden. And God knows how beautiful it was until that night. You know, no one is born evil. The devil himself was a fallen angel. But sometimes when you go through hell, the only way out is to walk deeper into the fire.

The UK cinema version reduces a rape scene and a very strong gory image to achieve a 15 rating. See more »
I was excited for this flick. I thought it looked like it could be a fun, crazy supernatural whodunnit kind of story. So, I went in with some fairly high hopes. Did the film live up to them? Well...not exactly.
It's well acted (Radcliffe gives a solid performance when he's actually focusing on acting and not on his accent) and incredibly well shot. I could not get over how gorgeous some of the cinematography is. However, there are a few things that bog it down considerably for me. The voice-over narration feels very forced in there and I thought that some of the exposition dialogue really killed lots of the more dramatic moments. It also suffers from very uneven pacing and the story flows is too jumbled at times.
Overall, I recommend it. It's a fine flick that you won't regret watching at least once, but it ultimately didn't do much for me.
