‘Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein’ could be an anthology

Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein feels like something totally out of the blue, a bizarre little gift bestowed upon millions of unsuspecting Netflix subscribers around the world. But if its creator has its way, there could be more where that came from.

Speaking over the phone to Mashable, writer John Levenstein revealed that the 32-minute special had initially been conceived of as an anthology — and that he hopes it could launch one still. 

“We would love to do more different kinds of plays. Not more Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein, but we’d love to do more plays at some point,” he said.

For those who have yet to experience the sheer madness of Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein, it’s a mockumentary hosted by “David Harbour III” (played by Stranger Things star David Harbour), who is in search of answers about his father, “David Harbour Jr.” (also played by David Harbour), who once starred in a televised play also titled Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein, in which he played Frankenstein, who would occasionally pose as the monster. 

(Confused? That’s part of the fun.)

The other installments of the proposed anthology series would expand that universe, exploring other people involved in the play or entirely new characters we haven’t met yet. 

“Natasha Lyonne wanted to do something. So we would do something with her as the grown-up version of the actress who played the little niece, called The Little Girl Under the Stairs,” said Levenstein.

“And then I was texting with Nick Kroll the other day, and told him I wanted to do something that was kind of a Laughter on the 23rd Floor without a laugh in it. A heavy, heavy drama about a comedy.”

As for David Harbour Jr., the self-obsessed actor at the center of Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein (both the Netflix special and the 1970s play it supposedly examines), Levenstein imagines the character would return as a lead in some installments and a supporting player in others — which would present a whole new set of challenges for him. 

“We’ve established that David Harbour Jr. has such a huge ego, that him in a small part would be a nightmare, because he would need so much attention.”

Then there’s the rest of the Harbour family. “I was also talking with David recently about maybe doing something with his older brother being in a psychosexual thriller in the ‘80s,” added Levenstein. 

“We’re talking about branching out in a lot of directions where we could do, not exactly parody in this form, but storytelling within these different genres, but we’d be starting out with televised plays.”

To be sure, these plans to expand the Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein universe aren’t exactly concrete yet. Even the most promising projects can fall apart, and there’s no guarantee yet that we’ll see all, or any, of these ideas come to fruition.

But until then, have fun rewatching Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein for the fiftieth time, and knowing that somewhere out there, its inventor is hard at work trying to bring more such strange and mysterious creations to life.
