Movie Info

In this horror film, scientist Dr. Joseph Buchanan (John Hurt) has made a brilliant discovery in the futuristic world of the year 2031. When a bizarre testing glitch sends him back to the 1800s, he makes friends with Baron Frankenstein (Raul Julia), Mary Godwin (Bridget Fonda), Percy Shelley (Michael Hutchence), and Lord Byron (Jason Patric). When Buchanan discovers that the ghastly events described in the soon-to-be Mary Shelley novel Frankenstein are actually being performed, it is up to the scientist to find a way to stop the experiments and get back to his own century.

about what you'd expect from Roger Corman... without the boobs

September 7, 2005 | Rating: 2/5

Has its problems, but what a cast! Kudos to film critic F.X. Feeney for scripting a Corman flick.

Sometimes even bad Corman can at least be fun Corman. This is not one of those times.

Good performances can't save it. Palm trees in Switzerland are a nice touch, though

August 21, 2002 | Rating: 3/5

More 'weird' than it is 'scary' - but it's generous with the weirdness.

I like this different look into the Frankenstein story. It's a little cheap but good.
