I, Frankenstein takes Underworld actor Kevin Grevioux’s graphic novel re-imagining of Mary Shelly’s gothic novel and transforms it into a blockbuster mythos that is not-so- coincidentally being brought to theaters by the same producers behind the Underworld franchise. There are new monsters at war this time (angelic gargoyles and hellish demons) and instead of a love story at the center, there stands just one figure, Adam (Aaron Eckhart) – better known to the world as Victor Frankenstein’s monster.

But like Shelly’s novel, the monster’s story isn’t complete without the mad scientist to go with it – and while I, Frankenstein is short on depicting the actual Victor Frankenstein (the monster, “Adam,” is reluctantly tagged with the doctor’s name) there is a surrogate mad scientist in the form of Terra, played by Chuck and Dexter star Yvonne Strahovski.
