Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein's bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and then nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbed tale, starring Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting, Hackers) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Doctor Strange) and directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire)
