Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein
2019
When actor David Harbour finds lost footage of his father's disastrous televised stage play of a literary classic, he uncovers shocking family secrets.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

In case the title didn't make clear enough how trippy and layered this little movie is, the trailer pretty well demonstrates it. This was written by John Levenstein, one of Arrested Development's key creative figures, but it may as well have been written by Charlie Kaufman, because barely a few seconds go by that don't build on ever-repeating questions of identity and authenticity and stagecraft. It's way too weird and dry for mainstream audiences, but if you're in the mood for 30 minutes of Kaufmanesque mind games, it's worth streaming.

Matthew Preston: “It was ok.”

0 for 2 from David Harbour for me lately. Much like Hellboy, I really wanted to enjoy this, but it fell short. I enjoyed the concept, and the commitment to the characters was impressive. In the end though, it didn't deliver quite what I expected. Not sure if this is what they were going for with the after credits scene, but it's certainly what it reminded me of.
