WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Victor Frankenstein (McAvoy), a radical and arrogant scientist, forms a professional partnership with his young protégé Igor (Radcliffe) through their similar – but very different – visions of aiding humanity and research into the science of immortality. Through Igor’s eyes, we see how Frankenstein achieved the impossible experiment that made him the legend he is today, and how the young servant attempted to save his friend from the brink of madness as well as the terrifying creation he brought to life…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
A re-telling of the classic story by Mary Shelley, but told through the eyes of an important side character – that of the scientist’s wide-eyed assistant Igor – Victor Frankenstein is an entertaining new twist that should make for some real gothic fun.
