Netflix recently released the trailer for the mockumentary Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein (what a mouth full) and it’s…well, there’s a lot going on. Being prompted as “A Netflix Playhouse Featurette”, the movie stars David Harbour as a fictional version of himself as he digs deep into the found footage of his father’s televised stage adaptation of Frankenstein, which was often described as an over-the-top and often dramatic(ish) reimagined tale of mystery and suspense. 

Clearly this movie is meant to be funny and plays into the found footage genre, though it does show some snippets of drama as interviewees warn Harbour not to dig deeper into this mystery because he may not like what he finds,”There’s a lot of things about your father you may not want to know.” There’s a lot of funny visual comparisons of the father to Orson Welles including a scene where the father looks like Welles in his now infamous Paul Masson commercial. 

Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein is directed by Daniel Gray Longino and stars Kate Berlant and Alfred Molina alongside Harbour. Check out the trailer below!
