Have Cheetah,Will View #471 – “Baby Frankenstein” (2018) “Wild Eye Wednesday”

Its 7:28 pm
dusk

 So this Wednesday,I was about 30 seconds away from posting this review when I made a mistake,when I went to correct it,Word Press had not auto saved my post and I ended losing the whole damn article. Needless to say,Word Press and I are not having a good time with their new format. Even when using the “classic editor”,they are still making countless errors and worse,they’re not listening to the writers on here who are rather pissed as well.
Because I have interviews and reviews getting stacked up,I am going to make this entry rather short and sweet.

 

 

   The cheetah and I have been doing reviews of films from Wild Eye Releasing for a few years,we got our start from our friend Dan from Rejectz Films and as this post,we have reviewed 28 of their films.
But our review of “Baby Frankenstein” is our first “Wild Eye Wednesdays” review.
The concept of “Wild Eye Wednesdays” was created by Jason of the YouTube channel “Horrific Nightmares JM” in which he has posted over 100 Wild Eye related reviews and unboxings. This has led to a small but growing number of horror fans to start doing their own Wild Eye Wednesdays series. Wild Eye has been a great company for many first time filmmakers to get their films out to the general public. Now with Jason’s brainchild at work,the Wild Eye brand will be spreading out a little wider (and wilder) as more horror and Wild Eye fans are now doing these reviews.


As for “Baby Frankenstein”,the video is pretty spot on. While the acting is a little bumpy and the best actor in the film,Andre Gower,is badly underused….it still has a lot heart and Rance Nix,who played Baby Frankenstein,did a great job and his make-up looked amazing. I think director Jon YonKondy will take the lessons learned on this film,like over playing the soft rock soundtrack in EVERY scene and taking away any suspense from the story. I don’t think he’ll be doing that in his next film.


While Wild Eye is known mostly for its horror/sci-fi films,”Baby Frankenstein” might signal that they may be releasing more family friendly fare as Blumhouse has done in recent years. By aiming for a more PG-13 market with some of their releases,I think Wild Eye’s growing fanbase would expand even more.
“Baby Frankenstein” has a run time of 83 minutes and has no special features.
You can order your copy of “Baby Frankenstein” by going to the website of Wild Eye Releasing.

 

 The cheetah and I both gave this little quirky charmer a thumbs/paw straight up.

  1. Great review 🙂 I have not seen it, but that image of the baby Frankenstein reminds me of Frank Henenlotter’s 1982 cult horror comedy Basket Case 🙂 So simultaneously weird and wacky that I just love it 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

  2. Seeing the words “Baby Frankenstein” and “gentler movie” together is very amusing. According to your review, there are comic moments in it anyway. And that makeup DOES look great.
    Last movie I watched with family (hubby) was The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Sweet, innocent, at times hilarious little animated Wes Anderson film.

  3. He certainly did! And Meryl Streep.
    And of course Wes had Owen Wilson in there somewhere, too, one of his usual go-tos.

  4. That makes perfect sense!
    I’ve always had a fond spot for Owen since he started out as a writer then went into acting and has a natural talent for it, in my opinion. Like he’s a thousand times funnier than Mr. Stiller in Zoolander, I think.

    1. Owen has had some very funny moments for sure but I have always liked Luke more for some reason. My favorite Owen Wilson movie is “Behind Enemy Lines”,I really love that movie. One of Gene Hackman’s last films as well.

  5. Luke is great too. I agree!
    Man, you gave me a start for a minute by saying, “One of Gene Hackman’s last films.”
    I was like, “When did Gene Hackman die?!” But you just mean he’s ramped way down with acting….
    Love him too.

    1. Me too!! Gene retired and moved to New Mexico,he did a guest spot on Diners,Drive-Ins and Dives a few years back….he also popped a homeless dude who was getting aggressive,good old Gene Hackman,tough even at 87 or 88.
