Plot Summary
In this re-imagining of the classic tale, Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Leonard Whiting) meets Dr. Henry Clerval (David McCallum), who is experimenting with reanimating bodies. Together they create the Creature (Michael Sarrazin), and after Clerval dies Dr. Frankenstein gives their creation his brain. At first the Creature functions like an ordinary human, but, as its body deteriorates and it comes under the control of the mad Dr. Polidori (James Mason), it begins to lash out and wreak havoc.
