Opens Friday, Jan 16, 2015 Synopsis: Still regarded as the definitive film version of Mary Shelley's classic tale of tragedy and horror, Frankenstein made unknown character actor Boris Karloff a star and created a new icon of terror. Along with the highly successful Dracula, released earlier the same year, it launched Universal Studio's golden age of 1930s horror movies. The film's greatness stems less from its script than from the stark but moody atmosphere created by director James Whale; Herman Rosse's memorable set designs, particularly the fantastic watchtower laboratory, featuring electrical equipment designed by Kenneth Strickfaden; the creature's trademark look from makeup artist Jack Pierce, who required Karloff to don pounds of makeup and heavy asphalt shoes to create the monster's unique lurching gait; and Karloff's nuanced performance as the tormented and bewildered creature. Frankenstein was greeted with screams, moans, and fainting spells upon its initial release, obliging Universal to add a disclaimer in which Edward Van Sloan advises the faint of heart to leave the theater immediately. If they don't: "Well...we've warned you." Director James Whale was memorably embodied by Ian McKellen in the Oscar-winning 1998 biopic Gods and Monsters. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Cast: Colin Clive, Boris Karloff, Mae Clarke, John Boles, Dwight Frye, Edward Van Sloan Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

Norte, The End of History

Now Playing Synopsis: A disillusioned intellectual commits a murder that's wrongfully penned on a desperate family man, leading them both down unexpected paths as the innocent convict's wife struggles to provide for their two young children in this literate drama inspired by Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. Fabian (Sid Lucero) is a highly-intelligent law student whose fiery rants against Philippine injustice captivate his admiring classmates. Joaquin (Archie Alemania) is a humble husband and father whose dream of transcending poverty is dashed after a tragic injury renders him unemployable. Unable to keep up his payments to vicious loan shark Miss Magda (Mae Paner), Joaquin falls into a deep depression that only worsens when Miss Magda turns up dead, and he's convicted of killing her. Meanwhile, Fabian, the real murderer, wanders free despite being a prisoner of his own outrage against his duplicitous, apathetic government. Incredibly, Joaquin finds a strange sense of peace in prison life, experiencing a strange transformation as his wife Eliza (Angeli Bayani) falls into a deep despair. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
