Victor Frankenstein (2015) Monster Madness X #28
October 28, 2016 at 3:30 am
This movie was a disappointing piece of shit. I guess you’ve got to be thorough, though.

I wouldn’t say it was that bad. It focuses more on the Dr.and Igor’s relationship. The Dr. Gave him a new life, and the interest in Igor from the start made Igor more human(a welcome addition). Victor’s eccentric behavior adds to him. And the story for him doing it is what makes it a tragedy. I say it earns a spot next to the other great Frankenstein movies.

As soon as Igor gets “cured,” I tuned out. Typical Hollywood bullshit. The rest tries to be an homage, but it’s uninspired, bland and forgettable at best.
Still better than I, Frankenstein though. 😛

I can definitely see both sides on this one. I personally felt rather ambivalent throughout the whole film.

What a great finale to Franken Fridays!

Friday? I subscribe to the philosophy spoken by Scott Valentine in some terrible ’90s vampire movie: “It isn’t tomorrow if we haven’t slept yet!”
Anyway, shame on them for resurrecting the monkey from Monkey Shines. Hasn’t that bitchimp caused enough trouble?

Every time A remake/reboot/retelling comes out everyone keeps saying that they shouldn’t change things up, and should stick closer to what made the originals so great. Here is a prime example of a film doing that, yet everyone keeps saying how unoriginal it is and that they played it safe, and is bad. I love how it focuses on the relationship, and shows that they genuinely cared for each other. Not just lacky serving mad scientist.

Sad to see this piece of garbage over The Bride from 1985. Should have added The Bride 1985 one of the most over looked and under rated Frankenstein movies. How can you go wrong with Sting as Dr . Frankenstein and Clancy Brown as the Monster????
October 28, 2016 at 11:38 am
I am with you on that. The Bride was one of those movies that stuck with me even out of my childhood. I remember it as a freaky movie as that little guy falling to his death cause someone cut the rope on his act and I felt so bad for him. That Frankenstein monster though was the best version that I have seen so far as well. Too bad he didn’t mention the movie at all. Maybe someday he will though.

I managed to track down a copy online so I can now discover it for myself.
Hey, that’s what the comment section is for, right? Find out about movies that might have been overlooked.
October 29, 2016 at 1:11 am
Yeah I know, did the same for me growing up. I’m really shocked that James didn’t even mention it at all!!! He might have never seen it too!!!
October 29, 2016 at 2:26 am
Hey BUD, where did you get the copy from? Is it dvd quality? Last I had that movie on VHS but my cousin has it somewhere and he lives in Greece since 1993 so it’s impossible for me to get a copy etc. I noticed that torrents are all blocked in North America now and I’m online from my galaxy S4, don’t have a VPN ti try and see if I can bypass the ban bullshit. Let me know where you found the copy and if it’s good quality video/audio. I might have to get a copy off you through WeTrabsfer. I found an upload on youtube but it’s complete shit and the speed is off no matter if you reduce or speed it up.

Yeah the dwarf was played by David Rappaport which also played in a handful of other movies prior. Sadly he committed suicide in the late 80’s or early 90’s I think.

I got it from here:
Bookmark that site. It’s a great resource for rare and out-of-print films.
October 29, 2016 at 3:04 am
BUD!!! Thanks soooo much dude!!!! I owe you man!!! Bookmarked it!!!
October 29, 2016 at 3:11 am
No problem, man. I’ve found so many old movies there that I can’t find on torrents, YouTube or anywhere else. I encourage everyone to check out that site.
October 29, 2016 at 4:05 am
ah fuck dude…it’s still being blocked. not letting me get to it. I haven’t even been able to access any torrent sites either cuz they put blocks to them. Has anyone found any VPN free or paid that works to access these sites? Hey BUD, if you downloaded the movie already would you be able to send it to me via WeTransfer ?
October 29, 2016 at 4:40 am
Sure, but I’ve never used it before. How does it work?
October 30, 2016 at 12:43 pm
what? We transfer? you have to put my email in, then yours and then upload the file (up to 2GB for the free version) which is what I always use. If you want any movies from me let me know and I can send you some too. I don’t wanna post emails on here publicly so either add me on facebook which i barely use or instagram both search me under Tim Toskas or Timmy Tosaks then I’ll add you in my friends and then I’ll inbox you. I have another friend on instagram we always talk horror movies and classics too. I think we neeed to start our own circle!!!
October 30, 2016 at 2:05 pm
and also quick question, how did you manage to download anything from that site? Do you use a paid VPN?
October 30, 2016 at 5:25 pm
I don’t use a VPN. All those sites you mentioned aren’t blocked for me. It must be your ISP.
I’ve managed to stay off of social media this whole time, but I think I have an Instagram I never use… Anyhoo, I’ve followed you, so I’ll wait to hear back.

I just saw The Bride tonight. I thought it was interesting. It’s basically two movies in one: a dark Gothic romance between Dr. Frankenstein and his female creation, juxtaposed with the humorous adventures of the rejected Monster and his dwarfish friend. It’s pretty entertaining, but it felt too long in my opinion.
October 28, 2016 at 10:24 pm
its just me or monster looked like Nemesis from Resident Evil 3 game(That big oaf who keep saying STARS! :D)
October 29, 2016 at 2:34 am
Been really disappointed with this year’s majority of selections from James. I could name you 31 movies for the whole month that he hasn’t covered or even mentioned for the most part. As Frankenstein movies go, The Bride from 1985 deserved to be brought up. On other zombie horror movies, The living Dead At Manchester Morgue was worth one.
October 29, 2016 at 7:09 am
It’s a wonderful movie.
I can’t remember a film where the lead character is a self-professed atheist. As an atheist myself, that was very welcoming and refreshing. Being able to say you’re an atheist without being shunned is the next step in societal acceptance. The latest taboo to be accepted was homosexuality.
And as an atheist, my number one desire is to beat death. Victor was very much like me in this film.
October 29, 2016 at 7:18 pm
Never want to see it because to much frankenstein shitty movie but maybe this I take a look. I liked the classic a lot I might give it a try why not thx James (&Mike).
October 30, 2016 at 12:11 pm
I LOVE this film! I loved how they got the stage make-up on the circus performers, which was a big call-back to the Silent era! And that was a huge shock to me that the hunchback was just a cyst! I found myself loving this film but I love the Frankenstein films of the 30’s
October 31, 2016 at 9:09 pm
Horror manga artist Junji Ito did his own version of Frankenstein; you should give it a read, James! Ito’s art is always detailed when it comes to gore.
November 7, 2016 at 10:24 am
The movie is a big budget mess, the plot is all over the place, big problems with the tone. McAvoy, usually a good actor, is annoying as hell. It’s all forgettable but the main monster at the end, it looks awesome! And they just use it for a dumb battle, you barely can take a good look at it and then they just kill it.
