Storyline

After the creation of his creature, Dr. Frankenstein researches and creates a perfect woman, Eva, to be the mate of the creature. However, the anxiety of the creature creates havoc in the laboratory that is burnt down and explodes, killing Frankenstein's assistants Dr. Zahlus and Paulus. Dr. Frankenstein believes the creature died too but he flees to the woods. Soon he meets and befriends the dwarf Rinaldo, who gives a name to him, Viktor, and invites him to work in a circus in Budapest. Meanwhile Frankenstein and his house keeper Mrs. Baumann (Geraldine Page) teach Eva how to behave and to be independent. One day, Frankenstein introduces Eva to the high-society, telling that she was found amnesic in the woods and has become his protégée. But Frankenstein becomes obsessed of Eva while Viktor and she have a strange connection. What will happen to Eva? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The best in romantic horror.
18 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

"The Bride" is another of those slash-bang thrillers which does not simply present the merit of its intrinsic entertainment value. Instead it dares you to draw out the psychological fun. On the surface, it retells the classic story about Frankenstein's monster. Underneath, it is an intense drama about love, forgiveness, and - if you will excuse the expression - explosions and mad scientists. (Or perhaps I should say exploding mad scientists. You just have to see it.) Watchers beware if you are not prepared with an open mind.
