The Variation, after all, is that Younger Frankenstein was once a full-on parody of Common monster Movies, lovingly filmed in black-and-white — while Paul McGuigan’s Victor Frankenstein appears to be more of a traditional large-funds motion/horror hybrid, with some bonus humor thrown in for good measure.
