Strap on your snow shoes, because The Frankenstein Theory is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring Katherin the Great.

Review in a Nutshell: A fairly typical found-footage horror film saddled with a particularly improbable premise, The Frankenstein Theory plays more like a tourist advertisement for beautiful Alaskan scenery than a suspenseful melodrama. I enjoyed Kris Lemche as the resident mad scientist, though.

  1. You ever heard of Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County? It was a found footage film from before Blair Witch Shindig. You see the aliens at the very beginning pretty clearly, and the rest of the movie is them being tormented while they try to escape. The people also aren’t a bunch of shitbags. If you watch it, find the full version; there was a shorter edit made for TV back when it came out on Bravo, that asses up the whole thing. I don’t think it’s commercially available, though.

  2. I noticed this podcast didn’t end with a tagline. Was there going to be one at all? If not, I suppose that’s OK. Didn’t seem worthy of one at all.

    Technically it aired on UPN (remember them). I remember watching it a bit that night and simply thought it was stupid and dumb (so is the network). Someone did a good video review of it I’d like to share here…

  4. The sound quality on this episode is crap. Both of you sound incredibly clipped, and it’s kind of painful to listen to.

  5. I am aware of that, Carrie. I made a mistake adjusting the gain levels while recording.

  6. I don’t see why found-footage has to be isolated to the horror genre or the characters have to die. With the advent of the GoPro and other wearable cameras, you could easily have a found-footage war film or cop drama. While I haven’t seen it, Europa Report is said to be more science fiction than horror.

    Also, my dream found-footage project would be an alt-history version of Hearts Of Darkness, where John Milius and George Lucas got their budget for Apocalypse Now and started filming in Vietnam right before the Tet Offensive, eventually with them shooting it out in real life with the Viet Cong in a night attack like in Milius’ draft of the film.

  7. I don’t know how many of my anime brothers and sisters will comment here, but I find that the pronunciation of Evangelion is “eve-an-gel-eon”

    I think that Cloverfield was about as scary as the Universal Studios King Kong ride. I know nobody cares about Cloverfield sequels, but I wanted to see how they took care of the monster after the end. Did it conquer all humanity, or did they create a weapon to defeat it? Oh well, guess I’ll just have to watch more Pacific Rim. 🙂

    The only person who left the Ant-man production was the director. Everyone else is still on.

  8. On the subject of found footage; there is a found footage period piece called Frankenstein’s Army that was pretty good.
