Synopsis

Through a series of flashbacks, Victor Frankenstein recalls the birth of his incredible, deadly creation to a team of arctic explorers. When his mother dies, Victor becomes determined to discover a way to bring life back to the dead. Through years of secret study and experiments, and the help of a magnificent lighting storm,  Victor revives a corpse. But instead of  creating a beautiful, strong, invincible man, Victor had created an ugly, terrifying monster.  Should Victor create a mate for the monster, who suffers from aching loneliness, and send them into exile? Or should Victor destroy the monster before he causes more death and destruction?
