Dr. Frankenstein created a monster patched together with corpses, then rejected it later. the monster returned to kill his creator while being attacked by demons. gargoyles appeared, saving him and brought him to their Queen, who named him Adam. Adam refused to join the gargoyles, but agreed to banish demons from the face of the earth to protect humanity. Adam continued to do so throughout the centuries. one day, a police officer was accidentally killed and Adam was again summoned by the gargoyles. the Demon Prince heard of Adam's tale, employed a scientist to conduct experiments to reanimate corpses, while instructed an army of demons to capture Adam, so he could unlock the secret of giving life.
while we were already familiar with the idea of Frankenstein, the story took that knowledge and added some twists to it. in this installment, Adam was caught in the battle between the gargoyles and demons. the film focused more on actions that its dark theme reminded us of the Underworld (2003-2012) series, especially since it was from the same producers. unfortunately, with its short airtime, it didn't have as much character development as the previous series. it was difficult to expect more from the film, seeing that the character practically had no facial expression but constantly reminding us that he had so much anger and hatred buried within. the moment he started developing a seemingly impossible romantic feeling towards the scientist, he lost us all together.
