Article Excerpt:

Tim here.All this talk of the great-looking movieswe can't wait to see,and theSundance cropof interesting (or semi-interesting,or bad) indie films is pulling focus from the reality of filmgoing as most of us live it.Which is that it's January,and unless you're still cleaning off the last end-of-year films as they trickle out into medium-wide release,the options for seeing a movie in theaters right now are dire.

Case in point,tomorrow finds the release ofI,Frankenstein,which,if I'm being honest,is very much I movie I've been looking forward to as much as anything on my official We Can't Wait ballot,though for entirely different reasons: the combination of Frankenstein,demons,and chiseled abs promises bad movie awesomeness of a sort that I don't expect to be replicated anytime soon.

It's not the first nominal Frankenstein adaptation to go so far afield from the source material,either;not even the first outrageously bad one.There is a grand tradition of Frankenstein-derived films so utterly bizarre and off-the-wall and divorced from Shelley that they makeI,Frankensteinlook dull,sedate,and conventional.After the jump,let's take a quick look at some of the strangest.
