Somewhere in Europe, some time in the past: Janick (Josh Ebel) has just successfully completed a series of experiments to bring the dead back to life, but when he presents his findings to the science community, he is ridiculed and his experiments are labelled blasphemy - and instead of making him famous, his experiments just ruin his reputation, so much so that he goes into hiding immediately after the presentation.

Soon enough, the plague hits town, and among the victims is Janick's girlfriend Esmeralda (Kelly I.Lynn). Of course, Janick, who now wears a mask, being disfigured after some acid attack, has her dug up and revives her - but alas, at first she is nothing but an empty shell, with no memories at all, and only slowly can he make her remember. When she starts to remember who he was though, problems arise, because the above-mentioned acid attack has turned Janick into a monster (on the outside), and when she tears off his mask, she is suitably frightened - but ultimately, love conquers everything.

 

Above all else, Promotheus Triumphant, a blend of Frankenstein- and Phantom of the Opera-motives, is an exercise in recreating the look and feel of silent cinema - and in purely recreating silent cinema, I guess this film is a success. But that's also the film's biggest fault, because Promotheus Triumphant's approach to the silents is purely academic, it's just an empty attempt to recreat the cinema of old, there seems to be neither a real understanding of the source material nor a reinterpretation of it - in short, the film lacks playfulness, and that's what any good movie should be, playful ... and if you want to see the techniques and motives of silent cinema in a new playful context, people like Guy Maddin show you how it's done.

There is another problem with Promotheus Triumphant though: It's dead boring. It's basic story shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to tell, and yet the film is 80 minutes long, and everything is padded out by trying to mock the slow pace of silent movies - but despite their different rhythm there is one thing that good silent movies never were, and that's boring ...
