Frankenstein presents the tragedy of an outcast creature brought into existence by the young scientist Victor Frankenstein. In this adaptation of Mary Shelley’s spine-chilling Gothic classic, Victor is obsessed with discovering the secrets of science and nature, but nothing can prepare him for what he brings to life one dark night in the heart of winter. So begins a life-or-death adventure as the creature struggles to find his place in the world while battling the demons inside himself.
