The "twist" that this movie puts on the classic tale is that it is told from Igor's perspective. However, Igor doesn't appear in the original novel "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley.
Among a number of film references you may also notice in the scene where Gordon the homunculus is reanimated, "it's alive" from the 1931 Frankenstein. This moment also appears to refer to the famous film quote, "Gordon's alive!" from the film FLASH GORDON (1980).
Charles Dance played Frankenstein in this. He played the master vampire in DRACULA UNTOLD (2014).
