Watch the trailer for ‘Frankenstein’ reimagining ‘Birth/Rebirth’

Ahead of the film’s release Friday August 18, IFC Films and Shudder

Ahead of the film’s theatrical release Friday August 18, IFC Films and Shudder have released the trailer for Marin Ireland and Judy Reyes starring horror Birth/Rebirth.

The Laura Moss directed pic reimagines Mary Shelley’s classic horror myth Frankenstein with such a contemporary understanding that it becomes something exciting, terrifying, and singularly new.

Rose (Marin Ireland) is a pathologist who prefers working with corpses over social interaction. She also has an obsession — the reanimation of the dead. Celie (Judy Reyes) is a maternity nurse who has built her life around her bouncy, chatterbox six-year-old daughter, Lila (A.J. Lister). When one tragic night, Lila suddenly falls ill and dies, the two women’s worlds crash into each other. They embark on a dark path of no return where they will be forced to confront how far they are willing to go to protect what they hold most dear.
