The 2019 film The Lighthouse (dir. by Robert Eggers) has elements that parallel Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" in a direct way and Percy Shelley's Prometheus Unbound in an allegorical way, due the fact the film is set on a rock on an island and on account of the tortuous suffering of one of the protagonists who becomes effectively the slave of the lighthouse master while hoping for release.

The image of V escaping the fire at Larkhill in the The Wachowskis' V for Vendetta (2006) is very similar to Blake's images of Orc from the Illuminated Works (cf. Urizen plate 16; America plate 12), and an almost exact reproduction of plate 5 (V, had Blake used Roman numerals to number his plates) of "The Gates of Paradise," titled "Fire." [...] Alan Moore cites Blake's work in V for Vendetta (1982-5) and Watchmen (1986-7).
This is the most faithful film adaptation of Mary Shelley's gothic tale. Young medical-school graduate Victor Frankenstein is obsessed with clandestine experiments in the rejuvenation of dead tissue. He creates a living man, assembled from parts of corpses and revived by an electrical charge of lightning. As with Shelley's novel, the film holds sympathy for the melancholy monster, whose deathly appearance, aching loneliness, and murderous quest for revenge make him the bane of Frankenstein's existence.
This movie of 1974, one of the most successful parodies of the horror film genre, was co-written by director Mel Brooks and star Gene Wilder, who plays a brain surgeon and descendant of Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced Frahnkensteen).
