Synopsis

"When I placed my head upon my pillow, I did not sleep, nor could I be said to think. . . . I saw - with shut eyes, but acute mental vision - I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life, and stir with an uneasy, half-vital motion. Frightful must it be; for supremely frightful would be the effect of any human endeavor to mock the stupendous Creator of the world."

Mary Shelley, from her introduction to the third edition of Frankenstein

Frankenstein’s monster is the greatest creation of all horror stories. Written by the 18-year old Mary in 1816 it tells the tale of Victor Frankenstein, a young student, who creates a living monster with no name, who wreaks terrible vengeance on his creator when rejected by a cruel world. Vivid, dramatic, terrifying and very moving, this new adaptation will explore the dark heart of horror.
