Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein

With a name like ‘Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein’ you can already guess that David Harbour‘s new mockumentary is going to be heavy on the absurdity. This Netflix show is going to have Harbour playing a spoofed version of himself as well as a fictional version of his father who was a great actor trying to bring a made-for-tv play version of the classic Mary Shelley story to life but things didn’t go that well. The film is set to be released on July 16th, 2019 and with the short runtime, it should be a quick watch for fans of Harbour’s work.

The streaming giant describes the show as:

David Harbour delves into the enigmatic history of his legendary acting family, as he examines his father’s legacy and role in a made-for-tv play. Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein streams July 16 only on Netflix.

This really doesn’t feel like an adequate description of what this will be about and thankfully the preview is a bit more enlightening. You can check out the ‘Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein’ trailer right here:


We won’t have to wait until the 16th to see new work from Harbour as ‘Stranger Things‘ Season 3 is dropping on the 4th which I’m sure many of our readers will be binge-watching, I know I will! As to this mockumentary, I’m not sure what to think. This looks as if the absurdity factor will either make it be a top-notch performance by the actor or a cringe-worthy attempt at something different. The show has Alfred Molina and Kate Berlant co-starring with Daniel Gray Longino directing with a script by John Levenstein.
