The timeless cautionary tale of man's overreach with tragic consequences for all. Victor Frankenstein, obsessed with scientific studies, creates and brings to life a creature made from scavenged body parts. However, unable to deal with the hideous "monster" he has created, Frankenstein flees, setting in motion a series of events that ultimately destroys everything he holds dear.
