We landed the official U.S. and UK art for Candyman director Bernard Rose’s Frankenstein, acquired by Alchemy following its highly acclaimed World Premiere at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival where it was awarded the grand prize, the Golden Raven Award.
Xavier Samuel (Twilight, Adore, Fury), Carrie-Ann Moss (The Matrix Trilogy) and Danny Huston (“American Horror Story”, Big Eyes) star in this modern day take on the classic tale by Mary Shelley.
Alchemy will release here in thew States on DVD February 23rd, while Signature Entertainment will release on digital platforms in the UK on Feb. 15th and on Blu-ray and DVD Feb. 22nd.
“Frankenstein is set in present day Los Angeles and told entirely from the perspective of the Monster. After he is artificially created, then left for dead by a husband-and-wife team of eccentric scientists, Adam is confronted with nothing but aggression and violence from the world around him. This perfect creation-turned disfigured monster must come to grips with the horrific nature of humanity.”
Rose directed from his original script based on the Mary Shelley’s classic novel. Xavier Samuel stars as the Monster, with Carrie-Ann Moss as Elizabeth Frankenstein, Danny Huston as Victor Frankenstein, and Tony Todd as Eddie, reuniting with his Candyman director Rose.
Special Effects Make-up was designed by six-time Emmy nominee Randy Westgate (X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
