Army of Frankensteins Information

Army of Frankensteins is a 2014 American science fiction horror film written and directed by Ryan Bellgardt. It stars Jordan Farris as a time-traveling youth who, along with multiple versions of Frankenstein's monster (Eric Gesecus), are pulled into the American Civil War.

Plot

After Alan Jones is savagely beaten by a street gang, he ends up at the lab of mad scientist Dr. Tanner Finski and his assistant Igor, a child genius. There, Jones discovers that he is the key to an experiment that involves Frankenstein's monster. When the experiment goes wrong, Finski sends Jones and Igor back in time to the American Civil War, where an interdimensional portal has allowed an army of monsters to converge.

Production

Shooting took place entirely within Oklahoma. Bellgardt recruited local actors to star in his film. For Dr. Finski, he always sought John Ferguson, who had played horror host Count Gregore. Gesecus, a fan of classic Frankenstein films, won his part partially through his knowledge of the classic monster. Gesecus was initially wary of becoming involved in a local, low budget effort, but his love for the character won out.

Release

Army of Frankensteins played at the DeadCENTER Film Festival in October 2014. It was released in Japan on August 2, 2014. It was released in the U.S. and Canada on Blu-ray, DVD, on demand, and digital on September 1, 2015.

Reception

Megan Sando of the Stillwater News Press called it a "hilarious sci-fi adventure" whose "gory special effects make up for the sometimes questionable acting". Mark L. Miller of Ain't It Cool News wrote that it is "a love letter to those classic horror films of old". Miller criticized the monster design but said that "seeing an army of them is amazingly fun". Amanda Hunt of Scream magazine rated it 3.5/5 stars and wrote that the film's creative and fun gore effects make up for its occasionally unconvincing acting. Jeremy Blitz of DVD Talk rated it 2/5 stars and wrote, "This film is doomed not so much by its badness, but by its mediocrity."

It won Best Fantasy Film at the 2014 PollyGrind Film Festival and Best Musical Score at the 2014 Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival.
