When a team of arctic voyagers rescue a ragged, half-starved man wandering the ice floes, they bear witness to a horrific tale of human prejudice and science gone awry. Enter the life of Victor Frankenstein, a promising young scientist whose reckless experiments set in motion a terrible series of events—for Victor, his family, and his hideous, unloved creation.
Forget the campy Hollywood version: this uncommonly faithful adaptation resurrects the fragile innocence and lurking terror of Mary Shelley’s original novel, preserving much of her prose as well.
