The incomparable Kenneth Branagh tackles Mary Shelly’s forbidding creation in this lush and bloody epic horror film. Branagh plays the lead, the death-obsessed Victor Frankenstein who attempts to conquer his fear of dying by reanimating the dead. Robert De Niro plays the creature and Helena Bonham Carter is the love of Victor’s life. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is a faithful adaptation of the famed gothic novel, nearly a direct translation from book to screen and the result is a mesmerizing, fully realized and exceptional piece of filmmaking. The DVD comes in widescreen and with the original theatrical trailer.

Synopsis

Victor Frankenstein stumbles aboard a ship stranded in the Arctic waters and recounts his tragic story... After his mother dies in childbirth, leaving behind two boys and an adopted daughter, Victor travels from Geneva to Ingolstadt to study medicine. There, he befriends the aging Dr. Waldman, who reveals a past attempt to reanimate a corpse. When Waldman is murdered, Victor steals his journals, and sets out to bring life from death. A creature emerges from this effort, a creature, alive but revolting, who escapes. Victor falls ill, believing the creature must have died from sickness. Victor returns to Geneva to marry his beloved sister, but the creature is anything but dead. Instead he's been hunted down by townspeople, driven away from society and painfully alone -- and now he seeks revenge on Victor by murdering his wife.
