One of I, Frankenstein‘s biggest sins was that the creature effects, especially with regard to Frankenstein’s monster, were pretty run of the mill. Back in the beginning effects artist Vincent J. Guastini had the reins of this bad boy, but unfortunately it was steered out of his hands.
Now Guastini has uploaded an effects/concept reel of what his vision for the film’s creatures would have been like. Gotta say it… we like it so much better. What a shock. Check it out for yourselves, and weigh in below.
