Storyline

In a foggy winter morning, a raft brings a priest to an isolated island. He is getting paid to perform a wedding ritual under very mysterious conditions. The groom is Victor Frankenstein, and the young and beautiful bride is his cousin Elizabeth. Seven armed and dangerous mercenary soldiers have been hired to protect her against something huge that hides in the woods, awaiting for that wedding night to be consummated. Victor is the only one who knows the truth about their enemy. His secret will be paid with the life of his private army, whose men will die one by one, as the creature gets closer to his target: the bride. Written by Ricardo Islas

Frankenstein Day of the Beast: A twist on the old tale
22 December 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I like the concept of Frankenstein's monster but movies using the story very rarely manage to entertain me. The last one that came close was The Frankenstein Theory (2013) and even that failed to live up to my expectations.

Day Of The Beast see's Victor Frankenstein enjoying his wedding day right up until the moment that his monster crashes the party and goes on a killing spree.

I see what they were doing here but for over 1 million dollars this should have looked a great deal better.

Marred by a dire cast including an outstandingly beautiful lead who still couldn't act to save her life.

Questionable sfx (The fire was laughable) pitiful acting, some weak moments in the script and an odd looking monster ruined what should have by all rights been better.

The Pet Cemetery (1989) inspired ending did nothing to change my opinion either.

The Good:

Some nice ideas

Leading lady was very distracting

The Bad:

Dreadful acting

Weak sfx

All looks so very cheap

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I found myself wondering why they gave the monster a penis when building him, is that wrong?

Horatio Sanz has a freakishly similiar down to his man mannerisms twin this film
