A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
Dr. Frankenstein creates a simple creature from various body parts. The creature turns into a monster when Dr. Frankenstein rejects him. Sticking close to the original novel, Kenneth Branagh guides us through the story of Frankenstein's quest for knowledge and his creature's search for his "father". Written by

The amniotic fluid in which the Creature was brought to life was really boiling gelatin. During filming, Robert De Niro and Kenneth Branagh slipped and fell in the stuff so much that a huge split appeared in De Niro's prosthetic suit, which had to be avoided by the cameras. See more »
When Elizabeth, while engulfed in flames, falls to the floor from the staircase near the end of the film, ignition fluid is visible on the floor in order to cause the flames to spread. See more »
I read Mary Shelley's Frankenstein for A Level English and we watched the film around the same time for Media Studies. I enjoyed the book and I am a big horror movie fan, but I thought this film was awful.
It is difficult to believe that with this title sticking closely to the book, and having such an impressive cast, that it could be so awful, but it is. There are times (often) when you should be horrified or scared, but will instead find yourself laughing.
It just didn't work and should be best forgotten! Spare yourselves and watch something else, Robert De Niro is in many many films a lot better than this, seek some of those out and avoid this turkey.
