The Frankenstein Theory is an American horror movie inspired by the 1818 novel Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley and its various film adaptations. It was written and directed by Andrew Weiner and co-written by Vlady Pildysh. It was produced by Image Entertainment and premiered on March 1st, 2013. The movie is filmed in the style of the "found footage" trope made popular by movies such as The Blair Witch Project and posits a fictionalized story wherein the events from Mary Shelley's novel are supposedly based on actual historical events. The movie stars Kris Lemche as Jonathan Venkenhein - who comes into knowledge that he is a descendant of the scientist from whom Shelley based her titular character, Victor Frankenstein. After researching his family tree extensively, he believes that the Frankenstein Monster actually exists and is located somewhere in the Northwest Territories of Canada. He hires a team of amateur filmmakers to document his journey to the north in search of the creature.
