If you’re a fan of the horror festival circuit, you might have already come across Baby Frankenstein. If not, you’re in for a treat. Back in October 2019, the film made it to the NEPA Horror Film Festival. Once June 30, 2020 rolls around, though, we all get to enjoy it in all its terrifying hilariousness.
Baby Frankenstein Trailer Release
As of Saturday, we’ve still got a few days to wait for this long-awaited gem. Until then, take a look at the trailer here:
Here’s the official synopsis from IMDb:
“Baby Frankenstein is a comedy-drama feature film that tells the story of young Lance and his unlikely friendship with a pint-sized, self-aware automaton. After Lance stumbles upon this ‘little dude’, he enlists the help of Truth, the sassy girl-next-door, to protect him from his mom’s batty boyfriend, Ken Glinevich.
Glinevich is hell-bent on capturing Baby Frankenstein and claiming the $50,000 reward being offered by the mysterious actual owner of Baby Frankenstein, Dauvin Lundquist. Lance finds an unlikely ally in his awkward neighbor, John, who appears to be romantically interested in Lance’s mother, Kim.
As the potential captors close in on Lance, Truth, and Baby Frankenstein, Lance must decide what he will risk to preserve Baby Frankenstein’s freedom.”
IMDb calls it a comedy-drama, but it’s really a horror-comedy-drama. It stars Ian Barling, Andre Gower, Patrick McCartney, Cora Savage, Rance Nix, Eileen Rosen, Yannis Stergiopoulos and Mike Rutkoski.
We can’t promise that it’ll be a gem of greatness, but it does hold a solid 5.3 on IMDb. Considering the fact that the site typically lowballs horror movies, this unique little flick certainly has some potential. You can snag it on DVD or Video on Demand June 30.
