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.

The quiet Rose works in women's fashion clothing, hoping to be a designer. A traffic accident damages her face. She gets experimental stem cell treatment, leaving her stronger and prettier than ever - but there's a side effect.
I nearly didn't watch this because of the title and the poster artwork. I just presumed it would be a cheap and nasty horror flick. But it's a really good reworking of the Frankenstein story and quite poignant in parts. The characters are well rounded and you actually do care about them. It has a good script though there are parts that seem rushed or out of character towards the end. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was glad I took the trouble to give it a go.
