Woo, Mike finally uploaded it. De Niro was really not necessary in it, but I guess they wanted the best performance out of the monster. The bigger the production value is, the more it’s left to luck whether it’ll be good or not… the way I see it.

I like it for what it is!

My favorite part (aside from the eels) is the cave scene with Victor and the Monster. When the Monster says he knew how to play the flute. “Where did this knowledge reside? In this brain? In these hands?” I agree that it shouldn’t carry Mary Shelley’s name if they’re going to make up new stuff.

One very over looked and under rated, rarely ever spoken of Frankenstein movie is “The Bride” from 1985, def worth a watch and review. It features Sting as Dr. Frankenstein, Clancy Brown as the monster, Jennifer Beals as Eve the bride of Frankenstein and the late David Rappaport. You should do a review on that one too.

Oh lawl.. Doctor Sting. I have to see this!

Def worth a watch. It’s got this cult feeling all over it.

Damn, never heard of this one either. Two more Franken-Fridays to go!

I remember watching a modern Frankenstein movie as a 10 or 12 year old kid and being in awe of it. Maybe not so much the film as my new found and developing appreciation for films. Years later I looked for it and found this one, and it didn’t seem correct. Because I was looking for the Randy Quaid version.. I’ve never seen that one again. But after seeing your work here, it’s all fallen into place. You’ve done it again, James! My childhood is almost re-constructed. I love it when a man together.

It was a decent film, in all honesty I had forgot Deniro was in it till this review reminded me, Its good to see it get talked about here though.

Good Review !!!

More truthworthy of the MAry Shelley book ,but new stuff wasn’t necessary… Deniro was great in that role.

Terrible movie, terrible direction, camera it’s all over the place, wont stop twirling, the acting its atrocious, especially Ian Holm , and that’s saying something because he is usually pretty good. The silly awkward finale also seems to take from Bride of Re-animator, and the moment she lit herself on fire and inexplicably makes everything explode is the perfect end note for a ridiculous bad movie.
