Description Frankenstein presents an unworldly outcast who turns to violence only when he is rejected and deprived of affection Yet his creator, Dr Victor Frankenstein, must pay the price for his scientific arrogance, his desire to play God, usurp the female role and 'give birth' to another living being. In scenes of nightmarish power, monster and maker meet in the shadow of Mont Blanc and chase across frozen Arctic wastes.
