I, FrankensteinI, Frankenstein takes one of movies’ greatest misunderstood horror villains and modernizes him to the likes of Aaron Eckhart (Battle: Los Angeles).

Eckhart’s chiseled face is covered in scars to play Frankenstein, who’s named Adam in this story.

The horror film takes place 200 years after the monster was created. Celestial forces arm Adam with weapons to defeat the demons that are constantly seeking his destruction. Soon he’s dragged into the middle of a war over the fate of humanity and discovers that he has the key that could destroy humankind.

I, Frankenstein is based on The Darkstorm Studios graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, but the movie version didn’t sit well with critics. They felt the film took itself too seriously and gave it a dismal 4% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Bill Nighy (About Time), Yvonne Strahovski (TV’s Dexter) and Miranda Otto (Lord of the Rings movies) star in the PG-13 movie, which was directed and co-written by Stuart Beattie (Tomorrow, When the War Began).

The Blu-ray and DVD contain these special features:

  • audio commentary with Beattie
  • audio commentary with filmmakers Gary Lucchesi, Richard Wright, James McQuaide and Kevin Grevious
  • featurette “Creating a Monster”
  • featurette “Frankenstein’s Creatures.”
