Filthy Horrors | Frankenstein Is the Monster



Darla, Jess, and I get flustered about Frankenstein. Or maybe that's just Kenneth Branagh's abs. And maybe that's mostly me. At any rate, we cover the Mary Shelley biopic starring Elle Fanning, the novel itself, and more movie adaptations than you can shake a pitchfork (or a torch) at.

Looking through the Bernie Wrightson illustrations got me thinking about what you can do with today's technology, either augmenting Doug Jones in makeup or going full Andy Serkis performance capture to create that massive monster with long hair, ripped muscles and no skin on his face.

Jones would make a FANTASTIC Creature. That makes me sad that we probably won't get the Guillermo del Toro version that he wanted to do a few years ago.

I do find it convenient that Del Toro did Crimson Peak after Disney vetoed his plans for a Haunted Mansion reboot. I think if he has enough passion for the project, he'll find a way to make it happen in one form or another.

He's kind of famous for announcing projects that he'd like to do if he ever gets time. And sometimes they morph into something else. Haunted Mansion/Crimson Peak might be an example of that. Creature from the Black Lagoon/Shape of Water would be another. Fingers crossed that Frankenstein is one he'll get around to.

I suppose an premature announcement is a way to drum up support/interest and get the feel of the audience beforehand.
