Simple Creature, a new modern retelling of Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, is preparing for its release later this month. Directed by Andrew Finnigan, the story centers on a young woman, saved after a brutal bus accident, but her life is no longer her own.
In the film, techie college student, Em (Carollani Sandberg) heads home for holiday break, blissfully thinking about her new boyfriend is on the way. However, her life is put on hold when the bus she is taking crashes, nearly killing her. Em’s father, Roy (Tony Doupe) is grief stricken. He is also the head of an advanced genetics, nanotech, and robotics lab. Here, he is able to bring her back to normal, with additional technology-enhanced abilities. While Em struggles to find her humanity after being upgraded, Roy’s lab struggles to control their most successful experiment.
