OK, let’s see if we can get this right…
In this mockumentary, real life actor David Harbour went and created his own alternate family history that makes the Harbours a family of actors. From there, Harbour wants to dissect his father’s attempt to make a stage play for TV that is a re-imagining-of-sorts of the Frankenstein story and thus makes this documentary. Harbour plays himself and “David Harbour Jr.”, his “father” in this meta-mockumentary that, in this trailer, includes a pull-quote from Harbour himself.
Pretty meta, right?
What this might be is a little murky at this point, but Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein looks like it could be a lot of fun in a Christopher Guest-ish way. The title certainly is the right kind of silly to peak our curiosity.
Watch the trailer here, then look for it streaming on Netflix, Tues. Jul. 16th.
