Set in 1815, a young Englishman touring Europe encounters more than he bargained for. His pursuit of the beautiful Countess St. Alyre brings him into contact with the Marquis D'Armanville ... See full summary »
This film begins with a man wandering around an artic wilderness on the verge of death when he suddenly sees a small ship stuck in some ice. As it turns out the man in question is named "Victor Frankenstein" (Leon Vitali) and the ship just happens to be on an exploration of the North Pole and the crew is endeavoring to free themselves so that they can continue on with their scientific mission. Needless to say, upon seeing this man they immediately bring him inside and when he gains consciousness he begins to tell the story of how he found himself in this particular predicament. To that effect, it all begins in Switzerland where he attended a university and became obsessed with creating life from death. Unfortunately, the life he creates is not something he ever envisioned. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was possibly the most boring movie I have ever seen. Not only was "the Monster" (played by Per Oscarsson) not terribly frightening but everything seemed to move at an incredibly slow pace. It was all quite tedious. That said, unless a person is looking for a cure for insomnia I would hesitate to recommend this film to anybody and I have rated it accordingly. Below average.
