I want to say a lot about this movie, but I can't just yet. Horror fans are going to freak out over this modern day take on the classic story of Frankenstein's monster. Great performances from everyone involved and Fessenden's story telling style is captivatingly scary. Watch it as soon as you can. We'll talk more later.
