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

User Reviews

Nothing to watch for 2/3 of the film.
16 September 2020 | by frankblack-79961See all my reviews

This was decent when they decided to get the the meat of the story. For some reason the writers or whoever thought you want to see an hour of build up and 15 min of anything of interest on screen. It felt like they purposely avoided getting to anything to with the subject matter. Idk what the deal was. Could have been good. Wasted time here.
