MARY SHELLY’S FRANKENSTEIN (Theatrical Release USA 1994)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein—interesting introduction to the Frankenstein story—accesses the talents of Robert De Niro, Kenneth Branagh, and Helena Bonham Carter to retell this old story. This Frankenstein story sits among one of the best movie renditions made.


Dr. Frankenstein successfully creates a living creature.
