Critic Reviews for The Frankenstein Theory
Fourteen years after "Blair Witch," has the whole found-footage-horror genre jumped the shark? Maybe. Weiner, however, manipulates its well-worn tropes deftly.
Audience Reviews for The Frankenstein Theory
a total blair witch remake done with frankenstein, almost the entire plot is identical, all tho it was done decent, it wasn't as spooky and crazy as I was hoping it would be. Honestly wouldn't have given this movie a chance if Lemche wasnt in the cast, but yeah, cool. cool cool.
Shot in a documentary style, The Frankenstein Theory puts forth a fascinating idea about the truth behind the classic Frankenstein story. After being drummed out of the academic community, Dr. Jonathan Venkenhein hires a film crew to follow his expedition into the Canadian tundra in search of a creature that he believes to be the source of the Frankenstein legend. Unfortunately, the acting isn't particularly good and the story structure is weak. The Frankenstein Theory starts out rather promising, but before long it loses its momentum and falls into bad horror movie cliches.
Another low budget horror flick, not great, but I thought it was somewhat suspenseful, delightfully creepy at times and even hair-raising here and there. I look like a gorilla in a man suit, so when my hair raises, I know it.
