Horror News Radio 43 – I, Frankenstein | Top 5 Frankenstein Films

I, Frankenstein tanked at the box office this weekend, but that does not stop the grue-crew from recapping and reviewing the overblown, dull adaptation of the graphic novel presented as if it were an extension of the Underworld films. Aaron Eckhart is cast as the Frankenstein Monster in the film directed by Stuart Beattie. Co-hosts Doc Rotten, Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Dave Dreher, Thomas Mariani and Vixen, the voice of reason, rally together having survived the droll I, Frankenstein as they slam the film.

Thomas introduces a new segment to show this week with his Top 5 of the Week. For episode 43, he brings the grue-crew’s favorite Frankenstein Monsters: the top 5 Frankenstein films to watch instead of I, Frankenstein. Hell, yeah — of course, Boris Karloff is on the list, but the others will likely surprise you!

Santos finally convinces the crew to watch Found, a film he has been championing since judging the New York Horror Film Festival in November. To his great pleasure, Dave shares his love for this film; Thomas and Doc, however, share their reservations.
