An obliviously modern college student gets into a near-fatal bus accident, but is reborn through hybrid technology by her biotech father and his advanced lab.
Em (Carollani Sandberg) is a college student heading home for the holidays when an almost fatal bus accident puts her life in jeopardy. Her father, Roy (Tony Doupe) is the head of advance genetics, nanotech, and robotics lab where the idea to implant a chip to help complete Em’s recovery takes place. This little nudge will put everything to the test. A modern, technology infused version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Simple Creature brings up the classical debate of man versus God and a new debate about faith versus technology.
Simple Creature is intriguing and even though it is a modern twist to Frankenstein it still seems to redefine. I’m interested in knowing how the process of being a person 100% back to life will work with the nanotechnology. The emotional connection between the characters is heartfelt. Em’s boyfriend Seth (D’Angelo Midii) is worried and its felt from the screen. With any kind of experiment danger always follows and if we recall Frankenstein an angry mob that does not understand the creature follows.
The cinematography has a high value with great picture quality and clean shots. Lighting and coloring illustrated the mood and the special effects were phenomenal.
Simple Creature will release July 25th on DVD and Video-on-Demand. Just based on the trailer I have a strong feeling this will be a great film to watch. Questioning our belief in science and nature and the consequences, director Andrew Finnigan had brought us a film that may have us curious and wondering about our modern age in health.
