Bernard Rose directed the classic Clive Barker tale, Candyman, and now he’s back with a new monster, his own take on the Frankenstein story.

Rose both writes and directs Frankenstein, and the first ever image has been released. The image (above) shows stars Carrie-Anne Moss as Elizabeth Frankenstein, Danny Huston as Victor Frankenstein and Xavier Samuel as The Creature.

Frankenstein is a modern adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel.

Rose directed from his original script based on the Mary Shelley’s classic novel. Xavier Samuel stars as the Monster, with Carrie-Ann Moss as Elizabeth Frankenstein, Danny Huston as Victor Frankenstein, and Tony Todd as Eddie, reuniting with his Candyman director Rose.

Special Effects Make-up was designed by six-time Emmy nominee Randy Westgate (X-Men Origins: Wolverine).

FRANKENSTEIN will world premiere this coming weekend at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.


Frankenstein is set in present day Los Angeles and told entirely from the perspective of the Monster. After he is artificially created, then left for dead by a husband-and-wife team of eccentric scientists, Adam is confronted with nothing but aggression and violence from the world around him. This perfect creation-turned disfigured monster must come to grips with the horrific nature of humanity.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
