Young Lance (Ian Barling) has just moved into a new home with his mum Kim (Eileen Rosen) and is now eager to explore the place - and finds a secret attic, and in the attic an android, Baby Frankenstein (Rance Nix), and he accidently manages to turn him on ... and is totally freaked out when Baby Frankenstein comes to life - but that's a good thing, too, as being that freaked out, he runs into Truth (Cora Savage), the lovely neighbour girl about his age, and the two take an instant liking into one another. And soon, they track down Baby Frankenstein together - just to lovingly take care of him. However, Baby Frankenstein has been stolen from the Lundquist Corporation many years ago, and when that company's chairman Dauvin Lundquist (Andre Gower) gets a message that the creature has been turned on, he makes it his personal mission to track him down. In Lance's neighbourhood, Lundquist stumbles upon Kim's redneck boyfriend Glinevich (Patrick McCartney) and his halfwit sidekick Van Sneed (Yannis Stergiopoulos), who have seen the creature with Lance, and when Lundquist promises them a reward for the retrieval of Baby Frankenstein, they break out their hunting geat - but it proves they're not really great hunters, as it happens to be Halloween night and Lance and Truth take Baby Frankenstein out trick-or-treating, and Glinevich and Van Sneed are not able to catch up with them, and eventually take Kim - who has since broken up with Glinevich - hostage to force Lance to give up the creature ...


To address the elephant in the room right away, yes, this plays a lot like Steven Spielberg's juvenile tearjerker E.T., albeit on a smaller scale - what works really for the movie more than against it, because due to budgetary restraints, the film features less spectacle and can thus show more heart without having to resort to tactics from the saccharine playbook. And in terms of comedy, Baby Frankenstein works totally in its own right, even if some of the caricatures employed in the movie are a little broad. What really makes the movie though is the title character that's not only a very fine makeup job, but Rance Nix also gives genuine depth to the character. So in all, if you can accept the fact that you've seen the story before (which truth to be told is true to most movies, and entire genres even), this is a fun ride.
