Robert De Niro, Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hulce, Helena Bonham Carter, Aidan Quinn, Ian Holm and John Cleese star in Branagh's acclaimed adaptation of "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein".
True to the original, here is the story of a young doctor whose obsession with death leads him to create a life. But his "creature," crafted from the bodies of convicts and the brain of a brilliant scientist, is a hideous mockery of humanity. And when the creature realizes he will never be accepted by men, he seeks revenge on Dr. Frankenstein and his family. An inspired adaptation that's emotionally complex and truly terrifying. "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein" is "100% pure excitement. Visually stunning and refreshingly different" (Paul Wunder, WBAI Radio).
MPAA Rated R for horrific images.
Produced by American Zoetrope Studios in association with Japan Satellite Broadcasting Inc. & The IndieProd Company. Released by TriStar Pictures, an Sony Pictures Entertainment company.
