Frankenstein and Me DVD 1997 Burt Reynolds Jamieson Boulanger
DVD Synopsis and information:
Jamieson Boulanger (Earl Williams) and Ricky Mabe (Larry Williams) both give great performances as child actors in this Monster Movie throwback. In the Spirit of Monster Squad this movie is very endearing and definitely are for those of us who grew up loving the old monster movies. Frankenstein and Me plays on the fantasies some kids have of growing up with fun movie monsters and the possibility of the adventures that would come if monsters did exist in a kid's world. This is a great movie for kids that are into monsters and also for adults who grew up loving the old monster movies. A great movie for the kids at Halloween time.
For those of us who grew up with cinematic monsters, Frankenstein and Me is not only a poignant trip down memory lane, but a validation of secret childhood wonder-feelings that monsters do exist and, if one believes strongly enough, anything is possible. Director Bob Tinnell and his crew (filming exteriors on the very edge of the Mojave desert in Victorville, California while shooting the interiors in Montreal, Canada) have put their heart and soul into this production, creating beautiful, finely detailed sets and scenarios that stand as loving homages to such films as Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, Brides of Dracula and Night of the Living Dead. Though the main character is 12 years old, don't be fooled into thinking Frankenstein and Me is just a "children's film." As Tinnell put it, this is not so much a kid's movie as a fan's movie. Clever, touching and entertaining, Frankenstein and Me is tailor-made for every monster-lover whose heart has remained true to his or her childhood dreams.
