I have no idea how to feel about this trailer for Victor Frankenstein. James MacAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe have a great chemistry as the doctor and his assistant, respectively, and I love how the movie seems to be doubling down on the mad science aspect of the classic story.

I even like Victor and Igor trying to hide their experiment from the police. But then weird, spider-y CG monsters stop popping up for some reason, and the movie starts looking way too much like any one of a dozen generic action-horror flicks. I guess we’ll see if one aspect of the film outweighs the other when it premieres on November 25, but I’ll tell you this: Dan Radcliffe’s hair isn’t doing him or the movie any favors either.
