The first trailer has arrived for David Harbour’s upcoming Netflix project, the intriguingly titled Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein…
David Harbour, who is best known to Netflix subscribers as Detective Hopper in Stranger Things, will play a fictionalised version of himself in this barmy-looking new project.
The joke at the heart of the show seems to be a meta one, with the description of the show reading thusly: “When actor David Harbour finds lost footage of his father’s disastrous televised stage play of a literary classic, he uncovers shocking family secrets.”
The vibe at play here seems to be a little like Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, with footage from the fake teleplay being discussed by equally fictional talking heads.
Here’s the trailer for Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein…
“David Harbour delves into the enigmatic history of his legendary acting family, as he examines his father’s legacy and role in a made-for-tv play,” Netflix has teased about the project.
Viewers are told to “Expect the unexpected in this over-the-top and often dramatic(ish) reimagined tale of mystery and suspense.”
If you look at the title on Netflix itself, you’re told that “This film is: Camp. Offbeat. Absurd.” You can definitely colour us intrigued.
Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein will launch on 16 July on Netflix.
