A scientist named Frankenstein experiments with the secrets of nature and creates a monster. The monster escapes from Frankenstein’s laboratory, and while Frankenstein hopes to forget about him, this is not to be as the monster begins to commit terrible crimes.
Frankenstein is one of the greatest horror novels ever written. The story of its creation is extraordinary. In 1816, Mary Shelley, her husband, the poet Percy Shelley, and the poet Lord Byron were in Geneva and stuck indoors because of the rain. To amuse themselves, they challenged one another to see who could write the most frightening horror story!
