5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Terror Found in Unconventional Frankenstein, Jan. 21 2000
If your're looking for something very different, oddly beautiful, and down right funny, then this film is for you. The film may appear silly and gross on the surface but if you watch closely, you may be able to see an inner glow. The characters are deliberately overplayed with unfitting lines which gives the film a not-too-heavy feel. I think this helped the film break away from the stiff/serious "Frankenstein Monster Movie" genre. The photography in the film is theatrical and very creative. The film itself is a perfect example of a Director given full liberty with the script and camera to do as he pleases. (In fact, that's the only way he was able to get away with some of the more ambiguous scenes in the film, to include several necrophlia scenes) I am sure that you will be pleased with the widescreen tranfer as well as the sound (mono-as origially intended) The comentarry (by the Director, Actor, and Critic) is the best comentary I've ever heard on a DVD. The music score is also memorable and beautiful. It seems to fit the film perfectly in the most odd places. Not for all tastes, but truly original, and THAT is what makes a great film!
