What happens when man violates the laws of God and science? For the crew of a weather-beaten ship stranded in the ice, the answer follows their rescue of a scientist close to death, frozen in fear, and insane with dire warnings. Victor Frankenstein has a story to tell â€“ a story as real as the tortured howls emanating from the Arctic fog. Obsessed with defying the laws of nature and of life and death, scientist Victor Frankenstein constructs a creature from exhumated body parts. Once jolted to life, the creature proves even more human than his creator - knowledgeable, wise, and also possessed of a conscience. Unable to inspire love, he chooses to inspire fear and vows to avenge the man who created and abandoned him.
