A gothic drama inspired by Mary Shelly’s classic novel. Set in the late 1700’s in one of Bavaria’s forgotten cemeteries, a lone gravedigger discovers a hideously scarred man hiding in a fresh grave. What the gravedigger doesn’t know is that the man is none other than the legendary monster
created by the mad doctor, Victor Frankenstein. What the scarred man doesn’t know is the gravedigger’s hand in his creation. And what neither man knows is that each of them is haunted by their shared past.
