Victor Frankenstein opens at a circus, setting the tone for the rest of the film. The persistent exaggerated dramatics would be appropriate if the film were a comedy or a satire of Frankenstein movies, but Victor Frankenstein is not funny or clever (or scary). Apparently striving for sincerity, the film manages only to sew together a silly assemblage of characters and scenes that doesn’t entertain or enlighten.
