|aTells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a promising young doctor who, devastated by the death of his mother during child birth, becomes obsessed with bringing the dead back to life. His experiments lead to the creation of a creature which Frankenstein has put together from the remains of corpes. The creature turns into a monster when Dr. Frankenstein rejects him. Sticking close to the original novel, the film guides us through the story of Frankenstein's quest for knowledge, and his creature's search for his "father."
