Victor Frankenstein deciphers the secret of life and creates a childlike, but grotesque shadow of a human. Rejected by his creator, the creature is cast out into the world, where he learns both the depths of man’s cruelty and the heights of human aspiration. Increasingly desperate, the Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Based on the classic novel about the fine line between inspiration and madness. A bold new adaptation of the most famous and horrifying science fiction story ever told.
This production is recommended for mature audiences as it includes full frontal male and female nudity and scenes that depict simulated physical and sexual violence.
