An interesting look at a classic story.
16 November 2013 | by steve-kubitzSee all my reviews

Corpsing is sort of a re-telling of Frankenstein, but with the genders reversed. The doctor falls in love with her monster. This isn't so much a horror film, as a dark and twisted love story. (Aren't those the best kind?)

The aspect of the film I enjoyed most is the acting. The actors involved do a damn solid job of portraying flawed and interesting characters. The lead, Joanna Lowe, especially does a great job as the doctor. She's raw and exposed as someone deterring on the brink of insanity. Unlike the original Frankenstein where the doctor hates his creation, this doctor falls in love with hers. Initially it starts out as almost a master/pet type relationship, but grows into something far more insidious.

Jeff Monahan does a great job as both Peter and Thomas. I actually didn't realize one actor was playing two separate characters until well into the film. That's a testament to the quality of the make up and the performances.

The movie has with some minor audio issues, but that doesn't take away from the overall quality.

Corpsing is a very solidly made movie and manages to create a very interesting and unique retelling of the Frankenstein story. It's a classic tale updated and with a twist.

I also want to make note that the wardrobe was fantastic. James Reinhardt did a fantastic job and his efforts should be applauded.

Enclosing, Corpsing is a fun and entertaining love story with a dark and sinister twist.
