I love this version of the story
21 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is my second favorite version of Frankenstein. It's not very true to the book but it is still a great film. Don't confuse this with the original Bride of Frankenstein, this is more like what would have happened after The Bride of Frankenstein or if Dr. Frankenstein had followed through on making a mate for his creature. It can act as a quasi-sequel to any version of the Frankenstein story.

It's a very sympathetic story toward the monster as well as towards the rights of women. It has a kind of hammer horror quality to it and Sting makes for a very alluring, attractive and somewhat sinister version of Dr. Frankenstein.

Special note: if you want a good faithful version of the Frankenstein story seek out the version starring Luke Goss as the creature from 2004 and made by Hallmark and released to DVD through Lion's Gate. That is the most faithful version to the novel.
