victor-frankenstein still


The way James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe talk about Victor Frankenstein, it sounds less like an adaptation of Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel and more of an amalgamation of every version since then.

Radcliffe’s character, Igor, wasn’t even in the novel but emerged as a pop culture touchstone from the 1931 movie Frankenstein (in which he was named Fritz). This new film, directed by Paul McGuigan (Wicker Park, is seen through the eyes of Igor, who is the assistant to Dr. Frankenstein (James McAvoy) and also one of his experiments.

“It’s about creation, and Victor is not only creating this monster but in a sense Igor, who in the beginning of the movie is living in abject conditions and considered less than human,” Radcliffe says.

A combustible friendship forms.

“Victor’s ego means that at times he thinks he’s superior to Igor,” McAvoy says. “Their relationship is close, loving, abusive, manipulative, and it turns on a dime.”
