New action film take on the Mary Shelly classic, Frankenstein, called I, Frankenstein, tanked in theaters its opening day. The $65 million budget movie brought in a paltry $2.8 million on Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It seems the only good things the film has brought viewers are the hilariously scathing reviews from both professional critics and regular movie-goers alike. Ranging from mild criticism to downright harsh, those who have seen the film all agree: don’t waste your money going to see I, Frankenstein.
People take their movies pretty seriously nowadays.

So it’s no surprise this one got so much hate.

I, Frankenstein. You, Unimpressed. — Eric Striffler (@EricStriffler) January 20, 2014
Yesterday I agreed to going to see “I, Frankenstein” with my mom today & right now I’m currently regretting it. — stephanie (@rlysteph) January 25, 2014
Not to mention the fact that it’s probably going straight to cable.
By the time I got to theater to see “I, Frankenstein,” it was already on DVD. By the time I got home, it was on Channel 9.

The Mexican version of the movie poster is slightly redeeming.

But not redeeming enough to clear up this confusion.
I, FRANKENSTEIN has 3% on Rotten Tomatoes but a cinema score of a B. We can’t go on like this… — Ti West (@Ti_West) January 25, 2014
Possibly the best description of the movie, ever.
I, Frankenstein is the best movie ever written by a Sega Genesis and an Evanescence album. — Eliza Skinner (@elizaskinner) January 25, 2014
And then there’s those that won’t even bother.
I refuse to summon the energy to creatively express my disinterest in Aaron Eckhart’s Frankenstein.
