A powerful masterpiece from the gothic pen of Mary Shelley. Victor Frankenstein is a man of science obsessed with the idea of creating life. So much so, that he creates a giant, human-like being out of a patchwork of corpses. However on achieving his miracle, Frankenstein finds himself horrified at his repulsive creation. His decision to abandon the monster leads to devastating consequences as, rejected and alone, it becomes determined to wreak its vengeance. Enraged not only at Frankensteinís betrayal, but also his refusal to give him a bride, the monster hunts down those Frankenstein holds dear, leaving his creator with no choice but to try desperately to destroy the horror he brought forth.
