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

Kenneth Branagh apparently banned the term "Monster" from the set. He insisted that everyone refer to DeNiro's character the way he was identified in the credits, as "The Sharp-Featured Man". 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.
