The upcoming feature film “sees a lonely Frankenstein travel to 1930s Chicago to seek the aide of Dr. Euphronius in creating a companion for himself. The two reinvigorate a murdered young woman and the Bride is born. She is beyond what either of them intended, igniting a combustible romance, the attention of the police and a wild and radical social movement.”

Production is set to start in the coming months with a scheduled release of October 3rd 2025.
