FRANKENSTEIN ON HALLMARK (article first published : 2004-09-11)

Hallmark (channel 8 on DStv) announces the premiere of Frankenstein featuring an all-star international cast.

The most hauntingly faithful version of Mary Shelley's immortal novel, Frankenstein comes to life in September exclusively on the Hallmark Channel on September 11 and 12 at 21h15 (epeats on the same days at 02h30).

What happens when man violates the laws of God and science? For Captain Walton and the crew of a weather-beaten ship stranded in the icy sea, the answer follows their rescue of a scientist close to death, frozen in fear, and insane with dire warnings. Victor Frankenstein has a story to tell-a story as chillingly real as the tortured howls emanating from the Arctic fog and as timeless as the need to be loved.

Academy Award winner William Hurt (Kiss of the Spider Woman) and Emmy and two-time Golden Globe Award winner Donald Sutherland (Citizen X, Path to War) headline the international cast of this epic thriller. Frankenstein also stars Alec Newman (The Dune franchise), Luke Goss (Blade II), newcomer Nicole Lewis and French film star Julie Delpy (Before Sunset).

This version, a $30 million production filmed in Slovakia and on a snow-covered glacier in Norway, returns to the source of the novel first published in 1818.
