    The Curse of Frankenstein


    A fresh retelling of Frankenstein that wins points for trying new things, but loses points for being a bit plodding.

    I was excited to experience Christopher Lee as Frankenstein's monster after seeing his brutal turn as The Mummy two years later, but this sadly pales in comparison.

    Zombies on a train is such a cool idea (Horror Express already proved this) - I mean, where do you escape to?…
