Fascinated with {{creating life}}, Baron Victor von Frankenstein starts conducting experiments of such with the help of his tutor Dr. Paul Krempe. Unlike the well-meaning scientist from the Universal films, Frankenstein is depicted as an unfaithful womanizer who has no qualms against killing people for body-parts and having those who obstruct his work murdered.

* DawsonCasting: Somewhat. Peter Cushing was 44 when he starred in this film. The beginning of the film suggests that Victor first began his tutleage when was still young enough for Paul to initially mistake Victor for the young son of the Baron, rather than the Baron himself. Young Victor is played by a much younger actor than Cushing and the lines suggest that he is still in his teens at the time. Assuming that about 10 years passes between this and the present (and given the barely noticeable aging of Paul), the Victor Frankenstein as played by Cushing should have been about in his mid to late 20s at most.



* TheEndingChangesEverything: The film is told as a flashback story by the Baron who is in jail for murder waiting execution. The ending leaves it uncertain whether the events really happened. Especially given the Victor's personality, we can usually rely on him to be an UnreliableNarrator.

* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: One possible interpretation of the film. [[spoiler:Although the sequels would appear to negate this.]]
