Trailer for Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein Promises Something That’s as Meta As It Can Get

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.
