I am so freakin’ stoked to witness Richard Raaphorst’s Frankenstein’s Army, but we have all been left in the dark as to when this one will see the light of day. Thankfully all that speculation ends today as MPI Media Group has just announced the films release date. Head on down below for all the details, and I’ll see you in the trenches.
From the Press Release:
“MPI Media Group today announced that it will open writer-director Richard Raaphorst’s FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY in select cities July 26th. The highly anticipated film, which recently screened to acclaim at the Tribeca Film Festival, is a co-production of MPI/Dark Sky Films, Los Angeles-based XYZ Films and Pellicola of Amsterdam.
Filmed in Prague and recently having its World Premiere at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY marks the feature debut of Dutch director Richard Raaphorst, and has already received high critical acclaim.
FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY is the latest addition to MPI/Dark Sky Films acclaimed original high-end genre productions. The Company was also behind highly praised genre films such as Ti West’s The Innkeepers and The House of the Devil , Adam Green’s Hatchet II and upcoming Hatchet III, the upcoming Late Phases and also Jim Mickle’s Stake Land.”
Synopsis: “Frankenstein’s Army takes place toward the end of World War II as Russian soldiers push into eastern Germany and stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Viktor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein’s work to assemble an army of super-soldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades – a desperate Hitler’s last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.”
