Synopsis
Frankenstein, an ambitious young scientist, hopes to be the source of a new species, but ironically his creature, namely a man-monster, evolves into a self-acknowledged Satan who swears eternal revenge and war upon his creator and the entire human race. The monster reflects that hell is an internal condition, which is produced and increased through loneliness. His only salvation is the creation of a mate, his Eve.
故事梗概
《弗兰肯斯坦》是一位有抱负的年轻科学家,他希望能创造出一种新物种,但是他的创造物—一个人形的怪物,变成了一个发誓要永远报复人类并向他的创造者和整个人类发动攻击的魔鬼。这个魔鬼反映出地狱只是一个因孤独而产生并不断积累的内心世界。他被解脱的唯一途径就是为他创造出一个配偶,即他的夏娃。
