Trivia

The concept for this telefilm was originally developed by Dean R. Koontz and collaborator Kevin Anderson, and intended as a television series. When USA Networks joined the project as production company and distributor, Koontz signed on as screenwriter and executive producer. Martin Scorsese also signed on as executive producer, and a cast (most of whom were in the final product) was assembled. Following creative disputes between USA and Koontz, both Koontz and Scorsese left the project (Scorsese was later convinced to return). Koontz and Anderson later developed the concept into a series of novels (as "Dean Koontz' Frankenstein"), but Koontz allowed USA to use the names of his characters as long as they altered the plot and removed his name from all consideration.

Worthwhile watch; but still a let-down
10 October 2004 | by imran-1See all my reviews

I thought that this movie was beautifully crafted .. acting was definitely above par for a Network made-for-TV movie. I guess that I left this movie feeling a bit unsatisfied. It seemed like too much of a "safe" pilot than a really movie. There was some conflict resolution, but the only resolution that was handed down in this movie was on a sub-plot .. leaving the evil villain to his own devices.. mysterious stranger is still mysterious and available to help. It reminded me of the Traffic miniseries .. too deliberately setup as a pilot for a full on series. Gave it a 5/10 as a movie.. if this does end up being a series .. i'll definitely add it to my tivo list.
