I feel like there should be a new Frankenstein movie every three years or so. Like Hollywood should take it on as a project. In what new directions can they push the story?

Funny you should mention that. I recently watched "Viktor Frankenstein" (2015), which tells the Frankenstein story from Igor's perspective. It stars Daniel Radcliffe as Igor and James McAvoy as Frankenstein (side note: I can never remember McAvoy's name and always first think of him as "Mr. Tumnus") and was not particularly good.
