CBS has ordered a drama pilot titled Frankenstein.

This latest and very loose adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic novel follows a San Francisco homicide detective who “is mysteriously brought back to life after being killed in the line of duty. But as he resumes his old life and he and his wife realize he isn’t the same person he used to be, they zero in on the strange man behind his resurrection – Dr. Victor Frankenstein.” (Duh-nuh!).

The Det. Frankenstein drama (yes, we know, he’s technically Frankenstein’s monster) will be in consideration for next season’s primetime lineup. Writer Jason Tracey (Burn Notice, Elementary) is responsible.

Just got back from seeing Escape Room and I really enjoyed it 6.5/10. Definitely had the vibe of say Final Destination and I enjoyed the different aspects of each utilized escape room. The plot focused on
Spoiler: show
lone survivors and the end with a tie back to the "No Way Out" phrase and Zoey/Ben being thrown back into a plane-centric scenario
was decent and I liked the idea that other groups had been utilized in the past. Also had a bit of a Cube feel to its plot backstory but could work if fleshed out in future sequels.

The characters were (mostly) likeable enough although, much like the first FD, not radically fleshed out. I can very easily see this going the 4-5 movie sequels route with fleshed out backstories and/or more elaborate escape room designs and concepts.

Just saw The Prodigy starring Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black) and Jackson Robert Scott.

6/10

Doesn't try to do much new with the concept of
Spoiler: show
possession of a kid's body via reincarnated soul
but the acting is decent, there's a few tense scenes (and only 1 stupid jump scare), and the film runs the length of time it needs to. The plot is a bit thin and some of the integration e.g. the opening, the psychiatric aspect, and the end go by fairly fast but at the same time it didn't feel like the film needed to be any longer than it was.

Check it out if you're looking for a decent February horror movie on the cheap in preparation to stuff like Happy Death Day 2U.
