★★½ "Abject misery is not just a state of mind. It is sound — and that terrible howl is precisely what makes this adaptation of Mary Shelley's seminal work hit you straight in the gut. All credit goes to Amy E. Harmon, who imbues her monster with such dangerous pathos that when she lets out that sound — of crushing agony and frustration and violent loneliness — don't be surprised if you find pieces of your soul lying in shards around your feet. It is a deeply fascinating performance that is, alas, surrounded by a muddled production from Bob Fisher and the Chicago Mammals. This is Fisher's second experiment with casting women to play men in traditionally testosterone-heavy stories; last year he took on "Moby Dick" and the results this time around are just as mixed." - Nina Metz
