The Curse of Frankenstein

Condemned to death for a series of murders, Baron Frankenstein tries to convince his captors that the crimes were those of a strange half-human creature he created in a laboratory.

Classic horror. In prison and awaiting execution, Baron Victor Frankenstein pleads with a visiting pastor to hear his incredible story of how he and his colleague Paul Krempe had successfully reanimated a dead dog, and how his lifelong ambition of creating a fully functioning, perfect human being had been thwarted by circumstance.
