After a failed attempt to propose to his girlfriend,
penniless Alan Jones (Jordan Farris) is beaten up by a street gang and then
finds himself waking up in a mysterious hidden lab where he becomes part of an
experiment to reanimate the legendary Frankenstein monster. However, Alan causes
a rip in the hole of
time by accident and he is thrown back to the American Civil War with kid
genius Igor where Alan and Igor must survive a battle between the North and
South while worrying about an army of Frankenstein monsters pulled from several
ARMY OF FRANKENSTEINS would have felt at home
with the type
of B movies being released to VHS back in the 1980s and 1990s, but the story
and cheap effects budget can’t save this movie.
You can tell when several people haven’t been shot in the same frame by
how the characters aren’t seamlessly painted in with the best care in the
battle sequences during daylight where you can’t tell one guy is playing
multiple Frankenstein monsters in many of the night scenes. The actor playing
Abe Lincoln looks nothing
like honest Abe while some of the acting is horrible (plus look at how fake the
beard and mustaches look on the soldiers). It is a mildly entertaining and yet
forgettable movie deserving only a rental.
The DVD only includes the
trailer, but there are more extras on the blu-ray release.
OF FRANKENSTEINS is only worth a rental due to horrible acting, cheap special
effects that don’t blend together half of the time, and a bad script that makes
you groan at times.
