Trivia

The "twist" that this movie puts on the classic tale is that it is told from Igor's perspective. However, Igor doesn't appear in the original novel "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley. See more »

Goofs

Igor prescribes three ounces of arsenic for Lorelei. The LD50 (lethal dose for 50% of the population is 13 mg.kg, so the amount recommended by Igor would be about 100 times the LD50. 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.

Not worth the time
6 December 2015 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I went to see the film because I am a fan of James McAvoy, but sadly the movie did not justice to the amazing performance of James and Daniel Radcliffe.

The editing and script was so bad. Each scenes are very disconnected and scattered. It also feels very jumpy and certain places were not explained well. I especially hate how they use the title opening "Victor Frankenstein" as if it is a verbal line in the movie.. It was SO ODD!

The lines were also very cheesy and clumsy, which you just wouldn't speak to each other like this in real life. It was only of James' amazing acting skill that makes the movie barely watchable!
