What we have here is a modern-y spin on Frankenstein, with a mad scientist sequestering his wife and himself in a backwoods barn so he can conduct clandestine experiments.The stitched monster isnít very much at all, and is only unveiled within the last ten-minutes of the movie ó the top half of a family dog, and from the back end, a baby calf ó but its use is one of hopeful grotesque reaction. It is rather gross to look at, but the robotic quivers and vibrations subtract instead of add to the forced malaise. Larry Fessenden doesnít much go after scares or thrills, but splotches of gore and perverse contortions through a randomness of his images. Which is to say itís all one long bore.
