[gap size=”135px”][text_output]“The first successful cloning of a human pulls a brilliant genetic scientist into the center of volatile battle between science and religion in this unique reinterpretation of the Frankenstein story that’s equal parts philosophical science-fiction/horror and paranoid thriller. Hypnotically cinematic and evocative of early Cronenberg, this is a fiercely intelligent knockout of a feature from award-winning short filmmaker Billy Senese (THE SUICIDE TAPES).”

[custom_headline type=”left” level=”h5″ looks_like=”h5″]Director’s Statement[/custom_headline][text_output]I have always loved Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and I wanted to create my own interpretation of it – take the themes and reinvent them with a modern reality that we might actually face in our lifetime. What interested me most about the Frankenstein narrative was the doctor’s compulsion and blind ambition. To me, Frankenstein was about a man with a great mind who had amazing talent and skill, who saw an idea and said, “I can realize that,” and then gets swept up into that single-minded task. Only after the goal is achieved does he wake up and see the consequences, and only then is he able to see what he has done through a new frame. So I set out to make a film not about the discovery and creation of the idea, but instead open with the idea already being achieved. We watch the main character wake up into a new reality as he realizes the consequences – good and bad – of what he has created. [/text_output]
