Did you know that 2018 marks the 200th anniversary year of the publication of Frankenstein? One of the best known and most influential works of horror fiction, the novel was first published 1 January 1818.
Of course, since then there have been hundreds of feature and short film adaptations, stage plays, and countless interpretations of the worlds most famous monster (This awesome blog is attempting to track them all!) The latest adaptation of the novel is set to give the original story a suburban twist, from Paul Williams and Evil Hypnotist Productions, the team behind the multi-award winning horror comedy The Furred Man.
Their latest film project Frank & Mary is currently seeking support via Kickstarter. Frank & Mary is the modern day tale of an elderly DIY enthusiast who reanimates his recently deceased wife in the garden shed. He struggles to keep her secret as her decomposing mind turns violent and the bodies start to pile up beneath the flowerbed. The film is set to be a dark comedy horror short film about love, loss and D.I.Y.
Writer/Director Paul Williams’ first horror film ‘The Furred Man’ was one of the first films Popcorn Horror shared and supported way back in 2012!
British illustrator Heath Robinson is the inspiration for the contraptions used to augment Mary. Frank rebuilds her from whatever he can find in his garden shed and by the end of the film Mary is more D.I.Y project than human.
