On a cold and snowy day, Filmmaker Ricardo Islas and his crew ventured into the woods of Illinois to begin filming “Frankenstein” The Day of the Beast. For several weeks the cast and crew would endure blizzards and freezing temperatures as Ricardo Islas directed the cabin scenes. The only heat we had was the actual fireplace in an authentic historic cabin. The result was incredible. From there the cast and crew would travel to a very old abandoned church in Chicago to film the wedding scene. With the sunlight shooting rays of light through the stained glass dome ceiling and the priest ready to begin the ceremony, the atmosphere of this church in complete ruble was more than words could describe. Soon after the pictures began to surface and a mini teaser trailer was released the film company Alpha Studios acquired some funding and began building the main sets in the city of Chicago. Special effects and set design were created by the master of horror John M Vitiritti. Many of the interior scenes have now been shot including explosions, gunfire, stabbings, dismemberment, etc. With three quarters of the film shot and enough funds to finish the film “Frankenstein” The Day of the Beast… is well on it’s way to making movie history with a version of Frankenstein that is unlike anything you have ever seen…

The lead roles are played by Adam Stephenson as Victor Frankenstein, Michelle Shields as Elizabeth and Tim Krueger as The Monster.

Ricardo Islas has six horror movies out including Night Fangs, Lockout and The Day Of The Dead, many of which have been released through Warner Bros.
