Recently described as the “best Frankenstein in living memory”, Bernard Rose’s fresh take on Mary Shelley’s novel comes to Blu-ray and DVD on February 22nd, and we have three copies to give away, courtesy of those kind people at Premier Comms and Signature Entertainment.
Set in present day Los Angeles, Frankenstein tells its tale entirely from the point of view of The Monster (Xavier Samuel – The Twilight Saga, Fury) as he is artificially created by a husband and wife team of eccentric scientists (Danny Huston – X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 30 Days Of Night and Carrie-Anne Moss – Pompeii, The Matrix Trilogy) and then left for dead. Confronted with nothing but aggression and violence as he attempts to make is way in the world, The Monster must get to grips with the horrific nature of humanity as he searches for his own.
Also starring horror stalwart Tony Todd (Candyman, Hatchet II) and Maya Erskine (TV’s Man Seeking Woman), Frankenstein is a full-blooded and unflinching reimagining of a timeless classic that terrifies as much as it casts a mirror over the nature of humanity and science.
To win a copy you just need to answer the following simple question:
