2. Frankenstein’s Monster
The original Mary Shelly novel was first filmed in 1910, but it was the 1931 Universal film, Frankenstein, that has been most remembered. Kenneth Branagh had a go at it with Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein in 1994 with Robert De Niro in the title role as well. Since then, we’ve seen multiple attempts to capitalize on the intellectual property, including the ill-fated box office bomb I, Frankenstein—which itself was based on a graphic novel adaptation of the public domain property.
Just as is the case with Dracula, if you’re going to attempt to write another Frankenstein movie, there has to be a unique angle that you can take.
