Trivia

Victor decides to give the creature a "flat head" in reference to Boris Karloff's famous 1931 portrayal. See more »

Goofs

How could have Igor learned to read much less become an expert on anatomy? His status in the circus was so low it is unlikely anyone would have invested in teaching him the rudiments of the 3Rs. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Igor: You know this story. The crack if lightning. A mad genius. An unholy creation. The world, of course, remembers the monster, not the man. But sometimes, when you look closely, there's more to a tale. Sometimes the monster is the man.
Igor: I've been with the circus for as long as I can remember. Circuses like to think of themselves as families. But, of course, each one has its clown.

Weird Movie
16 July 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"Victor Frankenstein" is a weird movie using Mary Shelley's notorious and famous character. There are many versions of this adaptation of the novel to the cinema, but this one rewrites the story in a totally different situation. The result is entertaining and intriguing in the beginning but becomes boring and annoying in the end. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Victor Frankenstein"
