We all know the story; We’ve seen the movies. You may think it’s impossible to have a new approach to Frankenstein. Think again. On a foggy winter morning, a priest is sent by raft to an isolated island.
He will be performing a wedding ceremony under very mysterious conditions. The groom is Victor Frankenstein.
The young and beautiful bride is Elizabeth. Seven armed and dangerous mercenary soldiers have been hired to protect her from something evil that lurks in the woods, awaiting the wedding consummation. Victor is the only one who knows the truth about their enemy. His secret will cost him the lives of each of his men, as the creature gets closer to his target: the bride. The World Premiere of Frankenstein: Day of the Beast will take place at The Portage Theater, located at 4050 N. Milwaukee in Chicago on Sunday, November 27th at 4pm.
“We stayed within the plot to honor Mary Shelley’s legendary original, but we added our own twist to the storyline. It’s a brand new ride on an old name you know well,” said Ricardo Islas, director and producer.
“It’s an action packed, old-style Hammer type of movie, completely filmed in Chicago and showcasing outstanding Chicago actors Adam Stephenson, Michelle Shields and Tim Krueger. This is a take on Frankenstein that you’ve never seen and will never forget.”
