A brilliant painter facing the worst creative block of her life turns to anything she can to complete her masterpiece, spiraling into a hallucinatory hellscape of drugs, sex and murder in the sleazy underbelly of Los Angeles.
Jenn has washed ashore a small tropical island and it doesn't take her long to realize she's completely alone. She must spend her days not only surviving the elements, but must also fend off the malevolent force that comes out each night.

It's not perfect, but what film is? It certainly is not within 5/10 territory, as its rating currently stands here on IMDb. The story was the opposite of flat, and it was neat to see this classic tale take some fresh turns. I'm a big horror guy, and a very picky one at that, and I would certainly recommend it to fans of the genre. It's perfect for a quiet day or night in, perhaps with some weed and popcorn, and plenty of time. It does run a bit long at just under two hours.
There wasn't enough blood and guts for my taste, but the gore we did see was extremely well-done and realistic. The makeup, prosthetics and special effects were extremely on point. Although there is a little bit of questionable acting, the main characters are believable and fit their roles well. Alex Breaux -- the dude who portrays Frankenstein -- couldn't have been a better pick with his angular and intense bone structure and height. If you're in the mood for a well-done take on Frankenstein and have a couple minutes, you're in for a good little treat.
