Frankenstein Unbound Movie Review

John Hurt, Bridget Fonda, Raul Julia... Roger Corman??? This bizarre mashup of Frankenstein and Back to the Future is alternately interesting (with good production values, at least for some of the time) and completely bizarre. Hurt plays a futuristic scientist (dig his clothes... dig the kids' clothes!) who opens a portal in time and ends up in Victorian England, along with a real-life Dr. Frankenstein. The usual mayhem breaks loose as Frank marauds the countryside, before being zapped into an alternate reality. How's that? Don't ask. It involves lasers.
