Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Made for cable television by David Wickes, the writer/producer/director of the TV mini-series JACK THE RIPPER and JEKYLL & HYDE, this faithful adaptation of the classic tale is remarkably similar in tone and style to Kenneth Branagh's MARY SHELLeY'S FRANKENSTEIN (1994), which it beat into European cinema release. Patrick Bergin is good as the Baron who duplicates his own body into the unfinished Randy Quaid, and Sir John Mills plays the blind hermit. Shot in England and Poland, this richly ornate version is told as one long flashback to a ship's captain.
