Review: This gothic horror thriller featuring characters from Edgar Allan Poe stories is based in 1820s Philadelphia. Annabel is taken to the home of her father and hears of the murders in her town, plus the mystery of her father’s laboratory and lab assistant. She wants to be a surgeon in a time the women are not allowed that opportunity. Her delving into the mystery of creating life replicates that of Dr. Frankenstein.
