The Evil of Frankenstein

Synopsis: Penniless, Baron Frankenstein, accompanied by his eager assistant Hans, arrives at his family castle near the town of Karlstaad, vowing to continue his experiments in the creation of life. Fortuitously finding the creature he was previously working on, he brings it back to a semblance of life but requires the services of a mesmerist, Zoltan, to successfully animate it. The greedy and vengeful Zoltan secretly sends the monster into town to steal gold and 'punish' the burgomaster and the chief of police, which acts lead to a violent confrontation between the baron and the townspeople.

My God!

Who could have done

this evil thing?

Baron Frankenstein?

l am Baron Frankenstein.

l've brought it.

So l observe.

And so will half the county

if you don't hurry up

and get it inside.

[machines whirring]

Put him down there.

Go on.

Still warm. Excellent.

lt ain't been gone long.

My assistant will pay you.

Thank you.

The head ain't much good.

l gave it a fair bit

of a knock when--

l don't need the head.

So long.

What's he you going to do now?

Cut out his heart.


Cut out his heart?

Why not?

He has no further use

for it.

[machines clanking]

[bell tolling]

[man coughing]

Sure this is the man?


Do you know who l am?

Yes, Father. Good night.

Just a minute.

l want a word with you.

[machines clanking]

Start the wheel, Hans.

Come on, man!

Hold it.


[electricity surging]

Good luck, sir.

[knocking on door]

Get rid of them, Hans.


Out of my way.

Look here....

ln the name of God,

out of my way.


Foul desecrator of graves!

You realize

that you're trespassing?

This is my parish.

This is my property.

So will you please leave?

How dare you?

You are interrupting my work.

Your work?

The work of the devil!


Please, Father.

You cannot....

[glass shatters]

[priest gasps]

[priest yells]

The fiend's servant!


He'll be back...

with help.


You'll have to get away, sir.


They always destroy


l'll get the carriage.




We're nearly there.




Didn't you tell me

you could never

go back there?

They have short memories,

l hope.

But it's less than

Where else can l go?

l need money to buy

new equipment.

Where else can l get it?

Have you any?

You know l haven't.

ln my house,

there are paintings

worth a fortune.

Carpets, furnishings,

all priceless.

l can sell them.

That's why l've come back

to Karlstaad.

You'll be seen.

The chateau is empty.

As we go

through the village.

lt's nearly noon.

There won't be anyone there.

They'll all be working

in the fields.

Nothing ever happens

in Karlstaad.

[people chattering]

[boys laughing]

[boys chattering]

There's a fair in the village.

The place is packed.

lt's a feast of carnival.

What a stroke of luck.


But you can't go

through there.

On the contrary, Hans,

the crowd will give us cover.

So many people about,

they won't be curious

about us.

Slowly, now.

There you are, Hans.

What did l tell you?

You were right,

as always.

Not always, Hans. Frequently.

Not always.

We should see the chateau

any time now.

There. There it is.

l can promise you

a comfortable bed tonight.

Why can't they leave me alone?

Why can't they

ever leave me alone?

Would you like to

tell me about it?


About what happened here

that night...

and why you can

never come back

to live here again.

Yes, l'll tell you, Hans.

l'll tell you what happened.

You've been with me long

enough to know the direction

my work has been taking.

lt is my wish to disprove

the old theories concerning

the evolution of life...

and the origin of

the life force,

and to restate them...

simply in terms of

biophysical chemistry...

as chemical action

and reaction...

controlled by

the external impulses.

l realized long ago

that the only way to

prove my theories...

was to make something

in my laboratory

that actually lived.

l never told you, Hans.

l succeeded once.
