Being a fan of the Frankenstein story (and more specifically the Universal films based on it), I really love to check out any new takes on the story. While some of them don’t seem to resonate with me much (THE FRANKENSTEIN THEORY being one of them), sometimes a film comes out that gives that character/story a fresh update. Even if it’s as loose as just a doctor creating life (or in this case, an army), Dark Sky Films’ upcoming FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY looks like just the mad doctor creating monsters-type film that is right up my alley. We’ve got a brand new red band trailer for you fright fiends, so by all means, check it out and let us know what you think!
“In the waning days of World War II, a battalion of Russian soldiers find themselves lost in enemy territory. Stumbling upon a village decimated by an unseen terror, they discover that a mad scientist (HELLBOY‘s Karl Roden) conducts experiments to fuse flesh and steel, creating an unstoppable army of undead soldiers. Leaderless and faced with dissension amongst their dwindling ranks, they must find the courage to face down an altogether new menace – or die trying.”
FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY roars into select theaters and VOD beginning July 26th via Dark Sky Films.
