Monster cleverly - and chillingly - reanimates a classic tale.
Friedrich Hoffman, the so-called monster, recounts how he was falsely accused of killing his fiancee, tortured and killed for his 'crime', and awoke on the lab table of Victor Frankenstein - a man with all manner of gruesome plans.
We see inside Friedrich's mind as he embarks on a single-minded quest for vengeance; but at what cost to the remnants of his humanity? Intense and gothic, Monster depicts nineteenth-century Europe in a blaze of depravity, excess and supernatural terrors, in an ingenious tribute to one of literature's greatest works.
