A misunderstood loner wanders the European countryside in search of a friend as he's relentlessly pursued by torch-wielding villagers in this coming-of-age tale. Hounded by a blood-thirsty mob who will never understand him, he only wants to be accepted. Maybe he doesn't look like the other kids in town. That doesn't justify bullying. Sure, he has an eccentric fashion sense. His sleeves are a little too short, and platform shoes were only in style for a brief moment in the early 70s. His haircut is awfully George Clooney circa Batman And Robin, and bolts in the neck take body modification to its absurd extreme. And maybe some folks sort of end up dead. That's really no reason to be chased by yokels with pitchforks. We should all try to walk in someone else's platform shoes for a moment, and spread a little understanding around. It's not so hard. I watched Frankenstein on dvd from the Universal Monsters Box Set, and no, you can't borrow it. Here's a trailer:
