‘Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein’ Trailer: David Harbour Plays a Very Dramatic Version of His Father (Video)

”Stranger Things“ star digs deep into his (fake) family history for Netflix mockumentary

David Harbour is getting stranger for Netflix’s upcoming mockumentary “Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein.” If that title didn’t already make it clear this project would be even weirder than Harbour’s “Stranger Things,” the trailer certainly will, as it features Harbour playing very dramatic versions of both himself and his “father,” David Harbour Jr.

In the 1-minute, 31-second clip above, Harbour explains how he’s been uncovering “lost footage” of his dad and his made-for-TV play, “Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein,” to learn about his “father.” The trailer gives you a tiny taste of what’s in this “found footage,” which is the not-so-stable, acting genius David Harbour Jr. and his dreams for his masterpiece.

(In real life, Harbour’s dad, Ken, sells commercial real estate in Westchester County, New York.)

The streaming service says you should “expect the unexpected in this over-the-top and often dramatic(ish) reimagined tale of mystery and suspense.”

Alfred Molina, Kate Berlant, and more special guests will appear in the mockumentary, as Harbour “explores the depths of his family’s acting lineage to gain insight into his father’s legacy – all in 28-minutes.”

“Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein” is directed by Daniel Gray Longino (“Kroll Show” and “PEN15”) and written by John Levenstein (“Arrested Development” and “Kroll Show”).

Watch the trailer above.

“Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein” launches July 16 on Netflix.
