A thrilling - but outdated - story about a modern Frankenstein...
This would be "Frankenstein" if Mary Shelley were French. It tells a story about an ugly man who lives in the woods and is lynched for the death of a young girl. The town-folks believe this put an end to the dreadful disappearance of young girls that ravaged the are in the last months. Meanwhile, a girl starts working in a strange manor, where she finds the true killer of the girls, and ends being kidnapped. But before all that: her fiancée builds an automaton, the epitome of beauty, and the girl falls in love for the automaton; the ugly man, a nice and gentile servant, loves the girl and is the only one to know her secret love. So, when he dies, the girl's fiancée takes his brain and heart and puts it on the automaton. The servant becomes an avenger for his death, and the only thing that can save the girl from a certain death. As long as he winds up his coil... In the end, the girl is saved and the automaton kills itself to escape suffering and leave the way clear for his maker, the girl's fiancée. I know, it sounds cheesy, but I loved it when I was a kid!
