Victor Frankenstein

Discover the origin of the monsters and his creation.


Victor Frankenstein
Yet another remake of Mary Shelley's classic horror story, this version had a very weak debut in the USA. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein and his equally brilliant protégé share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their groundbreaking research into immortality. But Victor's experiments go too far, and his obsession has horrifying consequences. Only his assistant can bring his friend back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation.

Tomatometer quote icon A re-imagining without the imagining, Victor Frankenstein plays at providing a fresh perspective on an oft-told tale, but ultimately offers little of interest that viewers haven't already seen in superior Frankenstein films.
