Frankenstein at English Theatre
Gothic horror is just the thing to get you in the mood for Halloween. The idea of a man-made man is still thought provoking as well as unimaginably threatening even nearly 200 years after the original story was penned by Mary Shelley.
Of the numerous remakes one that stands out is that by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) starring Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock). Exploring the relationship between troubled creator and innocent monster, the issues of parental and scientific responsibility plus deeper threads of good and evil the film does justice to the book.
