Dinosaurs roam the foggy streets of Victorian London? In this Frankenstein retelling, an industrialist with a God-complex exhumes bodies to create zombie slave laborers. George is a clerk in the British Museum investigating unexplained mysteries when one falls into his lap, or rather, out of his pocket when it’s picked by urchin Eddie. With the help of Liz, daughter of a clergyman and an aspiring actress, the pair attempt to solve the mystery of reanimated corpses and stolen dinosaur eggs. Steven Pacey expertly voices these British characters with distinctive regional and class accents. His portrayal of the megalomaniac sends shivers down the spine, and his rendition of Liz copying Eddie's cockney accent brings humor to this gothic adventure.
