It's biggest flaw is that it is so slow moving. It was painful to watch a character eat pudding for 10 minutes. It was either a good student project (CMU?) or a bad independant film. I stopped watching about 1 hour in. I watched the last bit later, and the end was ok.

This art film was very good. I've heard about the art scene in Pittsburgh, PA and this movie certainly shows the type of background available there. I suppose I could call it "Urban Gothic". I loved the derelict buildings that were used; they had so much character as ruins and they were just perfect. I know this was a low budget film but the people who worked on this film deserve the top rating; it really was a beautiful love story.

This is strictly an art film. It is a silent movie with an excellent music score. The aesthetics used by the actor and actress to demonstrate their emotions was outstanding. I gave it a five although you may not like it at all.

After seeing all the 5 star customer reviews of this film and reading the hype on the box that referred to it as an amalgam of such masters of weirdness as 'Cronenberg, Lynch, Romero, etc.' I figured I'd give it a look - heck... I enjoy a neo-old-school gothic silent B&W horror flik as much as the next guy.... it sounded intriguing!

In the aftermath of the viewing experience, however, I'd have to say that this 'indie' effort elicited mixed feelings as to its' (reviewer vaunted) 'brilliance'. I would give high marks to the film's producers for intent of concept, and some of the photography was visually very artful - many beautifully composed shots, and itz hard for B&W films to not feel 'arty'. Unfortunately, working against these 'positives' was a hard to shake sense of the rather amateurish quality of the production... my 'suspension of disbelief' factor was constantly challenged by the obvious low budget aspect of everything... this really had the feel of a 'film school' project

Noting that the entire piece was filmed in Pittsburgh, PA - I would give the director and cameraman praise for conjuring up a vision that managed to evoke some measure of gothic ambiance, but the obvious use of derelict buildings as sets and the unshakable sense that the 'actors' were likely non-professional 'friends' of the film-makers kept me from being 'immersed' in the proceedings. The plot of the film was interesting, but certainly not original, ultimately emerging as sort of a blend between Frankenstein and Phantom of the Opera. - all the elements were present for a poignant tale, but somehow I didn't find that the total package was very 'engaging'.

stunning... haunting... this film follows you after viewing with its pure hypnotic power. Like a Quay Brothers animation enacted with flesh and blood actors, Prometheus enmeshes itself into your psyche and dwells inside your Id, a brilliant technical and artistic acheivement in the tradition of Murnau, Florey, Browning and Whale.
