HOOPTOBER 8.0 Film 9/20
Dr. Frankenstein, a man who truly understands the old adage "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again," is back in the first sequel to CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN.

Filmmaking at the highest level. How did they do it? Todd Haynes has built an emotional computer or some shit, so many wires, all working together, all perfectly placed.
I don't know man, shit. It's real good.
