It was already weird that we're getting a sci-fi/action version of the Frankenstein story in the form of 'I, Frankenstein,' but the concept of another take on the iconic tale starring Daniel Radcliffe as Igor was even stranger. Now, this latter version has gotten a little more bonkers with the addition of the great James McAvoy as none other than Victor Frankenstein himself.

The story of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster has been told and retold so many times that it's not surprising that we've reached the point where Mary Shelley's classic horror story has become an apocalyptic action movie.

Supernatural and classic monster tales seem to have become all the rage in TV these days, with everything from 'Beauty and the Beast' to NBC's 'Mockingbird Lane' to capitalize on the spooky trend.
