About I, Frankenstein
Based on the graphic novel "I, Frankenstein" by Kevin Grevioux, this isn't technically a ripoff of the lucrative Underworld franchise as Grevioux also co-wrote those films. But like Underworld it features an stern-but-attractive badass protagonist and their hapless human love interest caught in the battle between two supernatural races, while Bill Nighy sneers from the sidelines. In this take on Shelley's tale, Victor Frankenstein (Aden Young) creates a monster who resembles a Gap model recovering from some botched surgery. The creature (Aaron Eckhart) comes to be known as Adam and, though doomed to live forever, the years give him the chance to gain some humanity. Now living in the dystopian 21st century, Adam is hunted by gargoyles and demons who want his power. Human physiologist Terra (Yvonne Strahovski) is also interested in him.
