The title is a reference to both the full title of Mary Shelley's original novel ("Frankenstein - or, The Modern Prometheus") and to Percy Bysshe Shelley's lyrical drama "Prometheus Unbound". See more »
When Dr. Buchanan meets up with Lord Byron in the grounds at his estate, quite visible in the background is a car driving across a bridge. Buchanan wasn't the only person, it seems, to own a car in 1817. See more »
I first saw this little known early ninties title on HBO not long after its release. I must say I found it to be quite memorable, with excellent performances by John Hurt and Raul Julia as well as Bridget Fonda. I love the 1800 settings in Geneva (actually filmed in Italy) and the way Hurt slipped back in time and found where he was. (according to his car "we are alone") so cool. The monster was real creepy and he actually talks. All in all, a very good movie I highly recommend. As of this writing, its not out on DVD that I am aware of but if it does come out, it will definately be worthy of my collection.
