Review: Frankenstein vs. the Wolfman in 3-D (2008)
First I´d like to thank Colin Clarke for contacting me and asking if I´d be interested in reviewing his short films. When a series of killings plagues a small woodsy community, a trio of orphaned pickpockets discover that a Wolfman is the culprit. Teaming up with the Frankenstein monster (Tom Zack), they seek to discover who the beast is in human form - before it kills again! Frankenstein vs. the Wolfman is written by Marc Packard and Colin Clarke who also is the director and the animator. The voice acting is pretty good, the animation is a very uneven, in some parts it looks good and in some parts not so good. There are a couple of good visuals, for instance the Frankenstein castle but the best scenes in my opinion are the flashbacks. In some parts it disregards the Frankenstein mythologi and the title is a bit missleading as it is Frankensteins monster that helps the orphans and not the good doctor. Some brief animated gore, no T & A in this.
Frankenstein vs. the Wolfman is available in both 2D and 3D. You can watch it here in 2D.
This review is based upon a online source uploaded by Colin Clarke.
Rating: 3½ out of 7. Frankenstein vs. the Wolfman was the debut of Colin Clarke and although it does have some nice moments, I especially liked the flashback where the origin of the Wolfman is explained, it has a some flaws. Keep in mind that Colin has improved his craftmanship, I recommend that you check out his short film called Raven´s Hollow (2011).
