Movie Info

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 order to truly carry out his research Dr. Franklin is going to need an assistant. Despite the highly controversial and blatantly unethical nature of Dr. Franklin's research, troubled medical student Adam Schmidt casts aside his doubts and hastily makes way for the doctor's snowbound laboratory to help take part in the potentially historic discovery. As the pair work feverishly to perfect their resurrection methods, they quickly find out that although death may not be as permanent as medical science presently dictates, it most certainly has some troubling side effects.

  • 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.

  • for a completely independent and truly local film, Subject Two is good

  • 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.

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.
