John Hurt plays a scientist who goes back in time and meets Mary Godwin (before she marries and takes the name Shelley), Percy Shelley, and Lord Byron. In Jim Jarmusch's 2013 film "Only Lovers Left Alive," he plays Shakespearian-era poet Christopher Marlowe, depicted as a vampire. One of his vampire companions in that film is friends with Byron and Shelley and talks about them at great length. He also refers to Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Godwin's mother, as "tasty." See more »

as a die hard Gothic horror movie fan i try to watch all the versions of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein,some great some really bad.when i heard that roger corman was going to direct this i was excited,roger corman has'nt directed a movie in a very long time so i knew this was going to be quite special.with Raul Julia,john hurt,Bridgett Fonda,and Jason Patric in the cast,its a big budget production,the story is kind of bizarre,what if Mary Shelly's Frankenstein was based on a true story? well this kind hearted but well meaning mad scientist(hurt)gets sent back to the past with his futuristic talking car(like kit from knight-rider)and meets Mary Shelly(Fonda)and Dr Frankenstein(Julia)and his monster(nick brimble)this movie was based on the novel of the same name.its got a hauntingly good score,everything works,i liked Frankenstein unbound,i believe Mary Shelly would be proud.I'm glad roger corman directed this,he did a great job.8 out of 10.
