machineDirector Caradog James adds another layer to the Frankenstein story in the latest gripping sci-fi adventure to come out of the U.K.

Set in the near future and with the world plunged into another cold war, Britain’s Ministry of Defence is on the verge of developing a robotic soldier. This soldier, called The Machine (Caity Lotz), looks and sounds human, but has the strength, speed, and ruthlessness beyond that of any living person. The project is near completion when a bug in the programming, a side effect of it being too close to human coding, causes the prototype to destroy the lab and everyone in its path in spectacularly violent fashion. Undeterred by this setback, lead scientist Vincent McCarthy (Toby Stephens) obsessively continues his work on The Machine in secret, away from the prying eyes of those who seek to destroy him.

Watch the clip below.

Although the clip does not show much I am impressed with the style on show. Hopefully, this will be a cool take on the Frankenstein story.
