Frankenstein is the 2004 USA Network production starring Thomas Kretschmann as Victor Frankenstein and Vincent Perez as his creature. It was produced by Martin Scorsese and based on Dean Koontz's version of Frankenstein. The film was originally intended as the pilot for an ongoing series, but this was not successful. Koontz later developed the concept into a trilogy of novels (Dean Koontz's Frankenstein: Prodigal Son, Dean Koontz's Frankenstein: City of Night and Dean Koontz's Frankenstein: Dead and Alive).



This is not a direct adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel, but a postmodern gothic reinvention set in present-day New Orleans. It recasts Frankenstein as the villain and the creature as a tragic hero determined to stop him; the primary action involves two police detectives (Parker Posey and Adam Goldberg) who enlist the aid of the creature ("Deucalion" in this version) to stop a serial killer (Michael Madsen) who may be one of Victor's later creations.
