PG-13 | | Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi
Told from Igor's perspective, we see the troubled young assistant's dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man - and the legend - we know today.
When at the party, Victor makes it up the stairs in a flash to stand next to Igor. Igor is then surprised and starts to say something, then stops. This is an allusion to Young Frankenstein.
You know this story. The crack if lightning. A mad genius. An unholy creation. The world, of course, remembers the monster, not the man. But sometimes, when you look closely, there's more to a tale. Sometimes the monster is the man.
Igor: I've been with ...
After being a hunchback all his life Igor would have needed months if not years of physiotherapy to be able to stand up straight and walk normally. In the film he manages it overnight. Then he dances up a storm later on - phenomenal.
