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 (John Hurt) runs across the three slaughtered sheep in the woods at the beginning, closer inspection reveals that not only are they still alive, but asleep and breathing, and the supposed entrails are actually placed strategically on the sheep and not coming out from inside them.

I've watched this film several times now and actually, every time I watch it seems to get a little better each time. It's an original concept on the continuance of the Frankenstein myth with some added "modern" futuristic bends and twists that motivate the story along. One of the best thing about this film is John Hurt. This doesn't seem to be his type of movie yet he does very well in it. His voice, especially, is captivating and keeps your attention. He has the type of voice that very few actors these days can boast about in that it has personality and sonority in tone. Something akin to the voices of Colin Clive, Vincent Price and of course, Claude Rains. If they ever decide to do a serious biopic about Rains, I really hope that John Hurt is considered: he'd be perfect for the part! "Yes...I know. Made me from dead. I love dead...hate living." - The Monster in the original 1935 "Bride of Frankenstein"
