I, Frankenstein will be your new favorite midnight movieAnnalee Newitz1/24/14 4:22pmFiled to: movie reviewi frankensteinmoviesaaron eckhart1794EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkIts premise is badass-simple, like a great first-person shooter, and its cast is mysteriously awesome. Get ready for demonic mad science, an army of Gargoyle angels, and Aaron Eckhart as the Batman-voiced Frankenstein monster who makes his enemies explode. You heard it here first: I, Frankenstein is destined to become a so-bad-it's-good cult classic. This movie, whose story was dreamt up by Underworld creator Kevin Grevioux, manages to pack a world of weirdness into a kind of amazingly compact story. We begin at the end of the classic Frankenstein tale, with the monster having murdered his creator's fiancee. After tracking the monster into the frozen wastes of the north, Frankenstein dies. "But that was just the beginning," says Eckhart in voiceover as he digs his creator's grave and peeks out at us from beneath a wig that was probably last worn by Christopher Lambert in Highlander. But the gothic graveyard scene isn't awesome enough, so he is immediately attacked by demons — who are then attacked by members of the angels' Gargoyle squad!
