Review

Low budget Brit sci fi with great atmosphere, effects that add to the movie rather than distract and a few shocks in places not expected. It offers a fresh spin on the Frankenstein/Pinnochio tale and even Caity Lotz is bearable compared to her god awful turn in Arrow.

Soundtrack is class in a 80’s b-movie way. Very cool.

Not bad, worth a watch if there’s nothing else on and I’m sure it will become a cult classic.
