Mary Shelley's classic gothic horror novel. The scientific young genius, Frankenstein, discovers a method for creating life in inanimate objects and sets about a project to build a human in his laboratory. He is successful in his aim, but in so doing, unleashes on the world a creature whose physical deformities make him repulsive to everyone who sets eyes on him. Starved of human affection, the monster becomes increasingly vindictive and violent, and turns the full force of his superhuman powers to the task of revenging himself on his own creator. At first Frankenstein is unaware of the fiend pursuing him. But soon the ghastly horror of his situation becomes terrifying clear... and the only solution is to find and destroy the monster, before he wreaks havoc on the entire world.
