Episode 1: Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994)

Frankenstein cover site

With the first pick, Devlin chooses Kenneth Branagh’s Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Hot on the heels of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, we examine this ostensibly faithful adaptation (hence the authorial namecheck!) in the mini 1990s Universal Monster revival.

Genius young physician-in-training Victor Frankenstein (Branagh himself) uses a personal tragedy as the catalyst for his quest to defy death itself, by creating an entirely new life, but soon finds that there are consequences to dabbling in the realms of the gods.

Featuring floppy dancing, quasi-incestuous relationships, John Cleese’s giant teeth and Robert De Niro as Sloth from The Goonies’ angry older brother, will Gali and Devlin find a jolt of pure electricity, or just a table full of decaying meat parts?
