Far From Bismark director Phillip Chidel takes a psychological approach to death and resurrection with a modern update on the Frankenstein legend concerning a doctor who claims to have found the key to immortality and the subject who ventures to his remote cabin for a series of chilling experiments. Deep within the snowbound monoliths of the Rocky Mountains, Dr. Franklin Vick is struggling to perfect the fine art of resurrection. Bringing the dead back to life is a tricky game though, and in

There are big ideas nibbling around the edges of the screenplay, but the movie seems underwhelmed by its own startling material.

Bringing back the dead ... feels old hat by now, a feeling mitigated only in bits and pieces by this decently crafted plod.

Even if it overplays its ghoulish central concept, Subject Two honorably reps the neglected cerebral horror sub-genre.

O curioso roteiro passa perto de algumas boas questões filosóficas, abandonando-as por aparente falta de ambição. Ainda assim, prende a atenção até o fim; não com suspense, mas com seus personagens.

Shot on high-definition video, Chidel's grisly indie draws as much blood as in any Roger Corman quickie, but it suffers from an anemic storyline.

A slick take on the Frankenstein concept, a pair of excellent lead performances, and a crisp, austere directorial style are the highlights, but the thing moves at such a glacial pace that it nearly stops time.

The resulting isolation lends an unnerving quality to the film, in which we are left to ponder what price we'd be willing to pay for immortality, and what would we refuse to sacrifice?

Audience Reviews for Subject Two

Slow burning but very well executed, and a rare example of an intelligent horror movie but the characters are undeveloped. The twist at the end is awesome.
